    ok im loosing the will to live. Im in the UK and tried twice now to get a gimbal guard that either fits or is supplied with the correct screws.

    this one doesn't fit:

    Gimbal Crash Protector Ribbon Cable Saver For DJI Phantom 3 Pro CNC Aluminium

    the right angled piece leaves a gap between the pad and motor of about 3-4mm. tried milling it at work then couldn't get the screws to tap the holes out. seller didn't want to refund, said maybe I could make it fit, in the end used paypal refund let them have 79p for postage. now sits on my desk as junk.

    second try took 3 weeks to arrive and the screws provided are countersunk head which is too big to go into the drilled recess in the back plate and no thread shows the other side:

    CNC Gimbal Crash Protector Ribbon Cable Saver For DJI Phantom 3 Pro Advanced

    im waiting for them to get back to me.

    what to do next? if I could get screws the right thread and length I could still use this.
