    Which aftermarket gimbal clamp are you using?

    Paid $1,400.00 for a new R/C toy and they can't even provide a decent gimbal clamp?

    These things couldn't cost DJI 1/100th of a penny to produce en mass.

    The one that came with it is absolutely worthless. Which aftermarket clamp is everyone using?

    Thanks!

    Truthfully the device DJI does provide to secure the gimbal happens to a decent accessory. I've bought plenty of the others in the market and seem to be happiest with the one I paid $1500 for.

    If you're really that fired up over DJIs and hell bent on spending money I can sell you a few

    The OEM gimbal lock works very well if you install it like this:



    But, if you insist, you can find some commonly used 3rd party gimbal locks here:

    Thanks for the instructions, but I'm well aware of how the OEM clamp is supposed to work...mine doesn't.

    It falls off, even when carefully inserted correctly. Thanks for the list of other suppliers.
