    I was curious if anyone had some solutions to the vibrations I am experiencing with my setups. I am shooting a real estate development video that requires a path of 6 miles thus I can't shoot with my quadcopter. The footage I shot a few days ago is unusable. Footage has to be rock solid for production. Here is my set up so far.

    Aircraft: Cessna 172
    Camera: GP Hero 3+ Black @ 1080/60fps, narrow FOV, no protune
    Mount: Cessna 172 strut mount:

    I mounted everything according to manufacturer specs. They said that prop may need balancing.

    I am now going up again. I have ordered another mount from Cloud Engineering. I also ordered the Snake River Prototyping BlurFix, ND .9, and metal GP cage:

    It's getting rather expensive 'testing' in an aircraft by the hour and I'm committed once we are up so I am trying to reach out. I'm sorry if this has been covered before. I am also going to post in other forums and categories. Thank you for any help any one can offer.

    Sounds like you may need to mount some sort of wind deflector.
