HOW TO: Make Phantom 3 Standard gimbal lock easy to slide on/off


The Phantom 3 Standard gimbal lock works very well once you get it into place, but it’s quite the hassle to slide on and off of the camera. This problem can be easily fixed by removing the four raised areas that slide against the top and bottom of the camera (see the image below). To remove them, cut the plastic away with a utility knife and use a fine grit sandpaper (e.g. 400 grit) to smooth the surface to prevent any uneven areas from scratching the surface of the camera.
