    Has anyone tried the Carbon Fiber Shock Isolator Anti-Vibration boards from Ebay etc?

    They are meant to reduce the "jello" effect from video but I find they increase the wobble when the Phantom is moving up at speed. I've not put much testing into it but was just curious as to how other people find them. I plan on getting a gimbal soon and this was just a stop gap until I got one but I think I'll remove it.

    Here's the one I got:

    Yeah, the anti-vibration balls are too soft, and will wobble. I've heard of guys putting foam earplugs inside,
    or filling them with silicone, to make them stiffer.

    Hmm, might be a job for a bit of Sugru maybe.
    Thanks

    I had to Google that, and I'm glad I did. Now I'm off to Amazon.com to buy some Sugru. ;)

    It's great stuff. I've been using it for a couple years now on various projects and mods.
    I usually buy it direct from Sugru.com but if its the same price or cheaper on Amazon go for it :)
