    After finally choosing this gimbal I had a little tinker and tested it today. Unfortunately due to my location I didn't take it high or far but just wanted to test the gimbal performance. The gimbal seemed to perform perfectly until I uploaded the video and found it jitters quite a bit.
    Anybody else had and solved this and what settings did you use?

    Found this YouTube video explaining PID settings,

    P.S. I know there's a thread on this gimbal but like the rotor pixel thread I thought I'd start one for actual owners of the gimbal.

    Right had a bit more of a fiddle, and its getting better. Does anybody know how many poles these motors have? Auto detect counts 14 and 13 for some reason but the aerial freaks settings say 12.
    Anyway here are my current settings that still need a bit tweaking. I've just added a filter too which I think adds to the weight a touch and helps stabilize a touch more.

    Also 3 short videos showing them in action (the 1st video I was going crazy with the controls to try and get as much shake as possible)
