So I just received a replacement X-Star Premium and i I noticed that the gimbal lock has been updated as attached. I'm glad to know that Autel is listening to their customer base. Its a more effective design in that it also shields the lens now, snaps on much more intuitively and is easier to notice to avoid forgetting its removal prior to flight. I just thought I'd share in case the previous iteration is overly frustrating for some of you. There's no harm in contacting Autel and requesting a replacement.
