    Hey everyone,

    So far I've been very impressed with my Phantom 2 and H3-3D. After my first few shoots I've noticed some slight jello here and there which is to be expected with the h3-3d as I've learned. I read somewhere that the effect might be mitigated if you install the softer black damping balls. I initially installed the white ones as per the DJI instructions but today I experimented with the soft black ones but upon takeoff noticed some rather significant shaking of the entire drone. I still had control but it was clear it was an unusable setup. Has anyone else had this happen? I understand that attaching a neutral density filter to the gopro can alleviate the jello effect and will look in to getting one but was surprised how badly the phantom shook with the black balls.
