    I just recently got a vision plus. Today I was checking all the screw's to make sure they were tight. I noticed a threaded screw hole on the Gimbel behind the lens. Has something vibrated loose or is this normal? The screw hole is right next to the black ribbon cable in picture.

    I checked with a couple of other people and theirs is the same. Maybe it is for a black cable protector! :)

    Not a problem. Checked two other gimbals, both had the same threaded hole (one was a brand new camera/gimbal, right out of the box). It may have something to do with the manufacturing process, or future changes ??
