    Howdy y'all...

    Have any of you guys been using ND filters on your GoPros?...
    And if so, have they screwed up the gimbal's balance or its performance?
    The filters I'm looking at weigh close to 7g which ain't much but hey - that gimbal's a sensitive piece of equipment.
    I'd really appreciate some advice or some feedback from experienced flyers.

    Use a counter weight of the same gram weight either on the motors arm or the backside of the camera plate. I used a washer and velcro on mine to counter balance the sunhood and protector lens on the GP 3+ for the H3-2D gimbal.

    I use the Snake River ND filters w/o any counter weights and have noticed no adverse effects on the H4-3D gimbal.
