    Hi All, I have been installing the factory gimbal lock back onto the P3S before putting it into my padded storage backpack (non-dji) and when i remove the phantom to fly it the gimbal is always loose and flopping. I have been installing the OEM gimbal lock exactly as shown and it is very tight and a PITA to put on and take off as it fits so tight yet it still seems to not work. What are my aftermarket gimbal lock options? Which ones have people had success with? An integrated lens cover and lock might be nice.

    You can find a few gimbal locks that are compatible with the P3S here.

    I'm looking for suitable gimbal lock with lens cap for long time. THIS would be great but they all are for adv/pro and not for STANDARD.

    Get this one and tell the seller you have a P3S. It works well; I like it more than stock gimbal lock.

    This would be great. But price is to much $10.99 + $20.35 shipping to Europe. Need to find something like that in Europe or less shipping. Any advice where?

    I concur this one works well. Just tell Nathan it is for a P3 Standard when ordering. You can also request a variety of different colors for the clamp & cap. I have the clear clamp with red cap. The cap stays tightly in the clamp so I install/remove them as a unit.

    I don't want to pay 30$ for one lens cap. Shipping is very expensive.

    I got it for like $8 but I am in the USA. There are plenty of other options available. Try ebayUK or Amazon.

    Look on 3dhubs.com to find a local personal print service. Most likely will find someone in your area.
