    Is your camera holding up since the last attempt at fixing it?

    I flew several times after using the penetrating grade of loctite with the camera staying level until it finally showed some out of level. I noticed , when reorienting the camera last evening, that it was more difficult to rotate the shaft with a needle nose. So I applied the loctite again and I'm hoping it has it fixed permanently. If not, I will look at installing a pin in the shaft where the camera mounts. I'm sure the engineer(s) who designed this are wishing they would have done something similar. Or perhaps the engineer was given a bonus considering all the replacement cameras they hope to sell.
