I used my CNC machine with a drag knife and cut a custom fit ND filter for the pahntom that adds no weight to the gimbal.  I use a sheet of -3 ND Gel and cut it to fit exactly to the inner shape of the removable lens cover on the P3 Camera....

It is snowing here is my area so have not had a chance to take it out and test it but will post a picture of my results when i can but here are some pics of the filter:

Pretty much did the same thing making a polarizing filter with a sheet of gel material.  Made a 28mm circle template and heck, I just used a small pair of scissors.

I 3D printed a lens cover for myself and while doing my testing for fit I accidentally unscrewed the lens cover.  I did not use much force to unscrew it but the material I printed my lens cover with is somewhat tacky...

any idea if and how I could use them?
I have no glass cutting experience. I am guessting if I just stick them to the front of the camera the imbalance would be terrible. The glass weights 6grams.

DiegoP - I tried not to put much weight on the front of the camera as it is very well balanced and the motors will have to work hard the more weight you add to keep the camera stable and compensate that is why I am only using the Gel material..

Those are pretty expensive especially when you can do the same thing for less than a tenth of the cost..
