    Hello friends.
    Just exploring my bird.
    Found very bad problem.
    Sometime (most of the time, to be honest) I receiving totally unusable video with "jelly" effect
    Dropbox - YUN00023.mp4

    What can I do?
    - propellers balancing? Replacement?
    - rubber shock absorbers replacement? (?)
    - camera/gimbal calibration?
    - something other?

    Any suggestions, instructions or links will be very appreciated.

    I believe it is referred to as "Jello" effect! and I don't see that as Jello effect!;)

    Your list is exactly what I would do, try balancing the props first.

    Thanks.
    I think about props replacement; maybe you can suggest some good carbon (*or not?) props better suitable for low-speed but smooth flight? It's too much options - I have not enough knowledge to make a good choice :)

    So, I did some more tests and watched my videos carefully again and again..
    Props are perfectly balanced, no doubts.

    Seems like the jello effect appear mostly at the course changing. I believe that no speed, nor wind speed (under a reasonable limits) nor direction itself do not provoking jello, but speed-direction's change only. Not necessary a strong turns like "sliding right then reversing to sliding right" but some smooth maneuvers too, like "approaching to a subject with lifting" or "sliding with turning together to cycling around a subject" have a result strong jello effect.

    Seems like PID should be corrected. Is it possible for this gimbal?
    BTW, it's strange, because I believe that factory settings should be pretty good for a very standard unmodified equipment.

    Rolling shutter effect, usually most noticeable on horizontal camera moves like a pan.

    I have it to on mine. It seems to me that certain modes or lighting I can see it.
