I forgot to remove my Gimbal Cover so I decided to „Mod“ it a touch. I just added a ribbon to it so that I’ll never forget to remove it again. I was going to bore a hole in it but then decided to thread it through the slot on the hatch. It works a treat!

here is my solution to this little inconvenience :)
Did it with Velcron so no harm done to the cover and most important highly visible with the orange string when you are in the field or something

I think it should says “ Remove before powering on” Thats because when you are power on you drone . Camera go through a few sequences of orienting itself with a few movements.(I don’t know about Mavic Air, i know my MP will do so) if the cap lock is not remove when powering your drone. That could cause the camera Gimbal overload that will means spending $ to replace whole camera unit.
