    So, had this same exact problem. Called Yuneec yesterday and they said that the screws are not currently available for order (yeah, wtf?), but the customer service rep DID send me a couple new ones for free. In the meantime, I went to a hardware store and got a micro metric screw (which I cannot remember the size of at the moment) and a washer. Just took my gimbal in with me and found a combo that fit. Only inconvenience is that it's not a thumb screw, so you'll have to get an allen wrench to tighten and remove it.

    The screw you are looking for is M2x4 (Metric 2mm x 4mm long) preferably a socket head type.

    One other solution if you lose the screw in the field is to put a lens ring accessory on, such as a filter or a lens hood. When the camera is in the GB203 just place the accessory on the lens and it should provide enough front-side retention to keep the GoPro fastened during flight.

    While I realize this is an old post, I discovered that the retaining screw size for my G is actually a 3mm. Strange.
