    I just use a rubber band to keep it from swinging around. I wrap the rubber band around the camera, and then to the mount above.

    I also use a rubber band to keep the GoPro on. I don't want to remove screws every time I want to use the GoPro for something else.

    Thanks Darrell1

    I'm doing the same thing but it seems like there has to be a better, more secure way. The Zenmuse seems mighty fragile, like going over a good bump in the car could distroy $700!

    Yes, it seems fragile, but I don't think it is. If you search, you will see a lot of people have crashed with it without problems.

    I asked someone at DJI the same question. I told them I was going to add foam to help cradle the gimbal for travel. They advised not to let anything touch it, just let it hang free.
