Mavic 2 Zoom Gimbal Guard

Is it just me or does anyone else find the Mavic 2 Zoom gimbal guard to be a tricky little sucker to get on and off. I’m terrified I’m going to damage the flippin thing? (the gimbal)

Yes. There are alternatives available on ebay, which aren’t hinged. Not tried one but have seen them in action. The pro is similar but not as hard to fit.

I have the M2P and found the same thing with the guard, it has this bit flapping about and was not quite sure about putting it on, it is very fiddly.

So I ordered one of these, branded by SunnyLife, I’ve had a few of their bits and pieces and all good stuff.

I obviously got the one for the Pro but you can get for the Zoom as well. The one for the Pro is great, very easy to put on and off and keeps the gimbal securely in place, from the photos the one for Zoom looks good as well. This is a different listing from than the one I got but is exactly the same but cheaper. It comes from China so you will have to wait a bit longer.

Yes, especially if they start quarantining stuff for the norovirus. :nauseated_face: :face_vomiting: :sneezing_face: :woozy_face: :bomb:

I don’t think a piece of plastice can catch a virus.

But they might stop the planes for a while

Not usually, but if someone with the virus sneezes all over your purchase and them wraps it up and sends it. You’ll get free “extras” with your purchase (actually you won’t. because the bio scanners at Heathrow will set off alarms and your purchase will get incinerated).

It’s all true of course. The BBC made a series about it in 1975 called “Survivors”. Always knew that could come true eventually. :scream:

My solution. A Velcro strip, it was originally a prop holder

Yeah but a virus needs somewhere to live like the rest of us and a box with bits of plastic or whatever wont be good enough so it will be well dead by the time it got to Heathrow.

I find the Magic 2 Pro cover to be a complete pain in the ass!
