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.
