I had a hard crash a few weeks ago.

The drone (350 QX3) held up perfectly.
The camera on the other hand kinda poped appart.

I had to go on the hunt for 3 of the vibration dampeners.

This is a simple fix to keep the dampeners in place in event of a crash.

Step 1: Cut Off the Old

Cut off the stock vibration dampeners.
This camera comes with 2, one at opposite corners.

Step 2: Zip Tie Time

Slip zip ties threw all 4 holes of the dampeners.

Put another zip tie over the one you just put threw the dampener.

be sure to leave plenty of slack when slipping the second zip tie down.

I would suggest doing this while alowing the camera to hang under its own weight.

the zip tie should have plenty of room to move up and down, but not enough to get in the way of the gimbal or the cameras operation.

Step 3: Snip and Complete

Cut off the loose ends and check to make sure everything is functional.

Now if you crash you shouldn't have a man hunt for vibration dampeners that are up to 50 feet from the crash site.

I crashed my mini 250 last week and lost 2 of the 4 anti vibration. I ordered new sets. Good idea with the ties
Im sorry to hear that :( It works well! When mine went down it was at night. I found 3 out of the 4, went to bed and tossed and turned all night. The next morning it was an all out, whole family type of man hunt for the missing dampener! It was found about 50' away from the crash site! Im sure it hit a prop and was flung To that distance. This should ( I hope) prevent it from happening again in the event of a crash!
