    Hi, I have an Inspire Pro X5 - just purchased. Question about the locking mechanism for the camera....

    1. Everything aligns well when I'm placing the camera in the gimbal but definitely feel tight turning lock all the way.
    I'm able to do it without much trouble at the end but I've had an X3 before and used to lock in easier. Is that just a normal variant? Due to new locking mechanism not yet worn in? I tried loosening the Allen screw on the gimbal ring a bit and slides somewhat easier but still needs a push for sure towards the end.

    2. When unlocking the camera, turns easy to unlock position but X5 needs some moving around before I can get it to come looks. Nothing crazy but definitely needs a little manipulation/forward back movement. Again I'm only asking because my X3 would come off somewhat easier. Is this normal as well? Anyone with anything similar?

    Thank you

    You are probably okay. Just make sure the rubber gasket on the pcb is okay and make sure you are locking the rear of the gimbal into the gimbal plate correctly before actuating the lock mechanism.
