Description: Neewer Black Gimbal Guard is a wonderful accessory to protect your DJI Phantom camera and gimbal from taking the damage in flight and recording. Compatible with DJI Phantom 3 Standard, Professional and Advanced. Made of premium carbon fiber material, offers enough strength. Compact design, will not block the view of the camera when pointing down. Very convenient to install and remove.
This does NOT work with the Phantom 3 Standard out of the box. The gimbal startup procedure will cause it to hit the bar and if you point the camera straight down you will see the bar. However if you make one simple modification, it will work just fine. You have to cut the bar at the top left notch assuming you are reading the Neweer label as in the product photo. To put it another way imagine holding the guard with the notches beside the round holes down. I used a Dremel to quickly cut off at the upper left notch and it pops in just fine using the notches beside the round holes. Now the camera moves freely and the guard can't been seen yet the guard still provides protection to the gimbal below the rear support where the cables are. There is a sensor in the leg of the Phantom 3 Standard that you can see in my attached photo that is the reason you need to make the simple modification.
If you own a Phantom drone, then you will understand the need for a gimbal guard.
Product took a long time to ship, around 2 weeks! Arrived in great condition, no damage and was wrapped in plastic.
Test - I own multiple drones and probably fly my Phantoms more than anything - favorite being my P3 Pro. Install was simple, slides into the groves on the landing gear/legs and gives the gimbal protection from below. What I like is that it also seems to strengthen the landing legs and is extremely light weight! I tested this today and the gimbal guard from Neewer is out of the view of the camera! I moved my camera every direction and couldn't get the guard to show up on the camera. Great design and it works like it should!
This WILL NOT FIT a Phantom 4! I was reading through the previous reviews and noticed that multiple people have tried to get it to fit - wasn't designed for the P4.
---Pros--- ❖High quality carbon fiber...
A good way to protect the gimbal. I also used small zip ties to add leg stable along with leg extenders in case of a hard landing.
