Any idea how this compares to the strength of carbon fiber?

The carbon fiber will be stronger I am sure. I wanted to make something that was clear or transparent and easy to install, but still added a layer of protection for the gimbal and camera. I do have a carbon fiber mix ABS I might try next.

At the least, this is certainly a good option to attach a GPS tracker.

Looks cool. So it just snaps in? Does that mean it's going to be popping off easily when bumped?

It's not that easy to get off. It would take a Large hit to just pop off. There is just enough give to get it in. You could always zip tie it in if you want an absolute solution. I played around and flew it a few times with no issues. My thought was having something there is better than not.
