I had the same request because sometimes I just wanna get out there and fly. Sometimes, like when I use it as a caddie for fishing to take the line out beyond the break, I don't wish to chance my goPro. Having to remove the gimbal scares me because that HDMI port is way too delicate to always fk with. But Kelly didn't feel it a worthy task at the time. I guess there's a minority of us that want to leave the gimbal in place and not attach the gopro.
