    The Mavic's gimbal is very fragile, so you'll definitely want to install the gimbal lock before transporting it. DJI does not currently sell a replacement. Try contacting DJI support and see if they can send a replacement.

    You can probably put a small piece of bubble wrap or other packaging material behind the gimbal during transportation until you can get a replacement clamp from DJI.

    Yeah.. I nearly lost mine too..

    Here is my fishline hack (I fly with the dome off at all times), no drilling required.

    They are so easy to lose. If someone scans the gimbal clamp and 3d prints them, they will be making a motza **WINK WINK**..

    That's not the gimbal clamp. I'm confused about what you think the gimbal clamp is and what you lost if you're not even sure what the gimbal clamp looks like.

    Lol-nope.. that's for the prong for the power cable. Look at the pic I posted - the clamp is the plastic piece hanging.

    Lol, I'm sorry that was confusing on my part. OK when we unboxed it i don't remember taking the clamp off of it... it was a crazy hectic day. but I could have swore this little piece was in the gimbal area somewhere. I'm just not sure what that piece is? and I must have threw the clamp away.

    Lmao I almost collapsed laughing so hard, I can't believe I kept that dang thing and my clamp went out with the trash. so hopefully dji will send me one in the mean time I'll have to figure a way to keep the gimbal steady .

    I think that what you have mistaken for the gimbal clamp is the little cover for the prongs on the charger power cord. It is completely useless.

    Is today April 1?

    I really hope that you removed the gimbal clamp before flying your bird. It is circled in the attached photo.

    Yes it was removed , we had four eager hands taking the Mavic out of the box. so I don't believe I ever saw the clamp after my husband took it off. it was accidentally thrown away. I just saw the little prong cover sitting on the shelf and not knowing what it came off of thought maybe it was a little clamp to hold the gimbal still. I realize now it isn't the clamp it's been thrown away accidentally .

    I actually lost my clamp too. It's so tiny and it's somewhere in my house. Did you have any luck calling DJI? How did you replace this?
