Yes, people have done this many times. It usually does not damage the gimbal -- unless you make a habit of doing it often.

If you attach one of these to your gimbal lock, you won't forget to remove it next time ;)

I too have forgotten more often than I cared to. A couple of ideas to help:
Get in the habit of inspecting your Phantom as part of your preflight checklist. A proverbial head to toe inspection. If you miss it, your not inspecting it.
Second, and a great idea, attach a reminder as msinger suggested. Here my reminder. Can't put the prop on if I forget.



It is one of the free lanyards that you can pickup at any casino.
