    I have balanced props and gimbal keeps shuttering. Was thinking it could be a motor or motors. No crashes and no hard landings. Ideas?

    Any noticeable vibration when the motors spin up without props?
    If not, it could be a gimbal problem.

    I'll give you my take, and if you've already installed them I'm sorry but you may not like what I have to say. I think they are a complete waste of money. They offer a modest improvement in performance, provide an almost imperceptible increase in flight times, and they cost TWICE as much as standard motors. It is, of course, up to you if you think its money well spent.

    On the ground, with the props removed, if you start the motors and there's vibration, then the motors are unbalanced.
    If there's no vibration, then put the props on and test again.

    U have to Tune down the gains as the motors have more juice as compared to the stock motor.

    Try tuning down pitch n roll to 100%.

    Or u can tune the attitude gains down from 260 to abt 160..

    As for me, I like the performance better as compared to the stock. I climb much faster n turn sharper. But if it's for fpv only then stock is good enough. But I like the looks!

    In addition, becos t motors have more power, unbalance props tends to stand out more. Make sure u props are balanced too.
