I posted this same item in the InspirePilot forum. Obviously, I wanted an answer and figured greater coverage?

I'm new to Inspire (1) and X5 so the idea of balancing the gimbal seems like a no-brainer, but I could get my arrogant butt (don't mean to be arrogant) jumped for this. Since I'm more of a photographer than drone aficionado I wanted to graduate from the fixed lenses of my Phantoms to different focal lengths. Not knowing what would be my fav I purchased the Panasonic 14-42 Lumix to help decided which prime lenses I would like. I pondered, how the heck to get the correct balancing ring especially since I'm fanatical (most of the time) about the virtues of a lens hood and wanted to make sure I could use the hood.

So, stuck a circle of hook and loop (generic Velcro) on the far back of the gimbal and affixed the mating material on a variety of coins: nickel, quarter, dime, etc. Seems the quarter was a perfect weight to balance the gimbal, and it's attached rock solid. IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS PROCEDURE? The gimbal clears the frame with plenty of room, no app errors?
