    Well after suffering a not so fun fly away and crash on my Phantom 2 with my H2-3D gimbal my gopro has stopped working. My Phantom crashed onto a beach. Not into water but wet enough for a splash onto my gopro and salt water and gopro components don't mix.. :( So my question is has anyone found any way of protecting your gopro while still using the gimble?

    None I have heard of other than getting a clear lens protector to put on during flight.

    I use a lens protector but that doesn't help the internals of the GoPro. One pretty ghetto option would be to wrap it in cling film but it still won't protect the back port that plugs into the Zenmuse if it does take a dunk. If i were flying near salt water I might consider it, at least the balance of the gimbal won't be affected.
