    I keep my Phantom in it's backpack upside down (motors facing down, gimbal up) on my motorcycle. Pic attached.

    Could this cause any issues? I keep gimbal lock in place at all times. I know when it's shipped it's bounced all around so I don't think it would be an issue. I'm taking the motorcycle (and Phantom) on a 500 mile ride in the next few days so I wanted to double check before leaving.

    Thanks,
    Blake

    should be ok... might want to wrap a sock or something around the gimbal and camera to avoid any weird collisions as you go over bumps (simply because the gimbal is designed to hang down and move freely)... but other than that... I don't think it should bother your Phantom.
