Gimbal grommet holder

  1. Hello,

    I'm a new x-star owner, and have a question about the rubber grommets that hold the camera in place. On mine, fresh out of the box yesterday, only 2 of the 4 grommets have the plastic holder thing through the grommets. Is this normal?

  2. Looks like mine only mine is orange, yes its normal
     
  3. A lot of people put a small wire tie in the other two holes installed loosely as a safety precaution in case of a crash. If the two pins break without a safety it often damages the tiny wires.
     
  4. Only two is normal.

    I haven't done it yet, but like the idea of adding wires.

    I crashed last Saturday and broke my camera from the gimbal. Was violent enough to yank one of the plastic holders thru the hole in the base plate. Gimbal stayed attached to the drone.

    Maybe when I get my new Gimbal I'll be motivated to add wires to protect the investment ($349). :)
     
  5. Maybe I should have said zip ties they are plastic and small ones are very lightweight.
     
  6. Yep, that was my thoughts as well. :)
