    Easy to see what could go wrong with using rubber dampers that are too hard, but what's the potential harm is using ones that are too soft?

    I read on another thread here that the best combination is to use the black dampers for the front and back spots, and the white for either side. I use it on my rig and it's been great, little to no shake at all (unless I'm in high wind/flying a bit erratically, naturally). Give that a shot and see how it goes.

    You use two of each. One black damper each for the nose and the tail sides, one white damper on each of the "wing" sides. 2 black + 2 white = 4 damperooskis.

    This combination gives you the least jitter/wobble/whathaveyou IMO, but I'd encourage you to test out different configurations yourself. Let us know if you have different results!

    There are two types of gimbal brackets depending on what its being mounted to. One is an x, the other is a +; I believe he's talking about the + formation. The P2's have x gimbal mounts.

    Hope this helps to clear up the confusion!
