    Jitters like crazy. Won't settle in. Just hooked it up yesterday.
    Mounted FC40 camera on it and have meticulously tried to weight it like a GoPro Hero3. (76 grams - FC40 weighs 36 grams)
    Moved the camera position all around the mounting arm - close, far, up, down, middle....
    Tried tweaking the V1 / V2 knobs.
    Just trying to get it to operate in a "stand-alone" mode. Frustrated as hell.

    Have a cheap ebay gimbal that did the same thing - but it settled down when I moved the camera out away from the pitch motor some.
    Seemed to balance it out better. No humming or stutters. And it was designed around a GoPro also.

    Anybody out there have this issue and solved it?
    I've scoured youtube, but all the issues seem to be with the tilt arm installed on controller...
    I'm just trying to get it to sit still and gyrate like it's supposed to.
