    What are you guys using to raise your Phantom enough to clear gimble? Taller legs are out and whatever I use has to removable to fit into case. I'm thinking 4 small blocks of foam but I thought I'd ask to see if you had better ideas.

    They have to be taken off easily.
    Also, I just got the Walkera G2D gimble. I like the gimble but hate the two little screws to hold camera retaining bracket on. Maybe rubber bands would be easier.

    Monte55, would 1/2 inch more be enough to clear the gimbal? If so, you might be able to install P2V+ landing gear.

    I used 4 pieces of foam I cut. Drilled a hole and then split. Total weight. 1.5 grams. $44 is crazy to lift the quad up half an inch
