Hello,
I´ve bought a circular polarizing filter for my P3A, but I need some advice.
Is the weight difference between factory UV (2g) and my CPL (5,5g) any problem for the gimbal?
May it cause any issues with gimbal motors? Should I use some counterweight, or just make gimbal
calibration with CPL attached?

It wouldn't hurt to counterweight it, however it's not as simple as add 3.5g to the back because you need to bear in mind the pivot point.
It's going to be making the motors work a bit harder but I'd be surprised if it causes damage.
I'd fly it conservatively for five minutes and see if anything feels hot when it came back.
Probably best not to use it *all the time* in any case.
