    I just found that a top from a Walmart Equate Naproxen 100 caplets will work perfectly for a Phantom 3 lens cover. Check out the photos attached.

    Nice! Although I still think its worth spending a little on a proper one (ideally with a gimbal clamp built in). I have one of these and love it:

    I like the idea of bracing the landing gear - it doesn't interfere with the sensors on the undercarraige?

    No. I made sure there was plenty of space from all other flight items.

    the flexible looks nice but $52 shipping included is just way too much i think, please someone in the US make one flexible too!

    The lens cap is not hard plastic only the new gimbal lock. The lens cap and hood are both Ninjaflex. Very flexible rubber like material.
    Thanks,

    You are correct. The cap or hood goes on first or inside the gimbal lock itself. Works great.
