I’m wondering if you think it’s possible to use the accessory mount as a place to also connect a lanyard. I know if I just use the mount hole that will work, but maybe I can use the mount to connect to a holder and place the lanyard somewhere else. I don’t know, maybe through a side in the door. Or maybe just use one of the mount holes and still be able to fit it into the holder, like my GoPro handlebar mount. Any ideas? BTW, I do see on Amazon and eBay a piece that slips on the bottom to attach a lanyard but it doesn’t seem safe. It seems like it has the potential of falling off.

Hello and good day darrins. Thank you for sharing this idea with us today. Actually, there is a possibility that this accessories ( a lanyard ) will work. However, since it's not yet tested by DJI we cannot guaranteed the safety and stability of the said accessories if this will work with no fault all the time while using it. Thank you for understanding and for your support.

Well, I just purchased the accessory mount and DJI Store and will give it a try. Either way it will get use even if it isn’t practical for the lanyard.

Other than the holes on the back were you mount the GoPro attachment there isnt really anywere to connect it and you obviously cant put it in its case with the mount on.

I purchased a hood cover for the lens on Amazon since I like keeping the Controller Wheel connected. So I dont think I’ll be using the case anymore. And I’ll get a glass screen protector for the screen. I guess I’ll see if by attaching a lanyard to one of the back holes, the mount will still fit in my handlebar mount. I hope so.

I thought about using a hood cover for the lens, but what happens if you accidentally turn on the camera with the hood connected?. Surely this is likely to put too much strain on the gimbal motors and eventually failure.

It doesn't. The OSMO realizes this during the test turns and sends a warning to the screen. Motors are cut off before the strain. Screen will say Gimbal protected, tap to continue (After it is freed)

I've thought about printing this accessory https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3331900, so if you've got access to a 3D printer...maybe you'd want to do the same.
