    Thread title.

    Thinking about purchasing 1 off eBay from a guy on this forum who has it for $14.99

    Are they worth it? Does letting the gimbal hang freely really stress it that much?

    With my previous P2s I never used a gimbal lock and I carried/hiked with them all over and never had an issue.

    Any and all input is appreciated.

    Thanks for your help guys.

    After market gimbal locks are a must have. Makes using the Phantom so much easier.

    I use the one Dragon does. Its a looser fit to the gimbal body but its a tight fit on the lens of the camera. Either way, less annoying than the stock setup.

    The gimbal guard was also easy to setup and it came with a lens hood too

    I ordered a gimbal saver and a gimbal lock. Very cheap added piece of mind for a very expensive investment.
