    Hello,

    I'm wondering what you guys are doing to secure your Gimbal from bouncing around while you transport the Phantom?
    I'm planning on taking the Phantom with me on a ATV trip but I'm concerned that I may damage the fine mechanic of the Gimbal due to the permanent bouncing while driving thru rough terrain.
    I have the DJI case but the gimbal is just hanging in the air.

    What is the trick to prevent the gimbal bouncing around?


    Thanks

    I stick a piece of soft foam between the camera and the Phantom's body to keep it stable.

    Thanks for the tip, it sounds like an easy, simple but effective solution.
    I'll be hunting for a piece of foam the next few days.

    Thanks a bunch

    I use some BluTack. Works better than foam.

    IMO, foam is more resilient and less likely to transfer vibration and shock to the gimbal.
