    I'd like to swap the rubber dampers in my Zenmuse H33D, I'm finding it impossible to remove the plastic clips in order to remove the gimbal, and remove the white ones which were fitted as standard? I don't want to be too harsh on the gimbal, what are you guys doing to swap them?

    Cut the plastic ones off and use extra pair that came with gimbal or as most of us have gone to is plastic wire ties losely secured.

    Plastic wire ties? How does this look when done properly? Thanks for the help

    that's exactly how my fronts look. what did you do for the rears? just curious. I used the stock plastic clips in the rear and have not yet needed to swap the dampeners but I was thinking, if I used cable ties like that on the rears, wouldn't that affect how the plate attaches to the body?

    I use one on the front and one on the opposite back corner. The rear ones can be a little tight squeezing between the body and plate if you have a P2 with the bigger hole in the shell (so the mounting plate sits closer), but I did it on one of those this weekend and it caused no problems (just had to squint a little more while feeding the ziptie through the dampener lol)
