    So I have an FC40 and just go vision props for it.
    I've noticed that it seems to over compensate for wind and videos from the gopro definitely seem a bit more shaky - especially when hovering.

    I did a 2 video test.

    Started a recording with the vision props then stopped it after 5 min.
    switched to my standard props - started and stopped the recording.

    There is definitely a difference. So I'm guessing it's the gains values.
    Since the vision+ closely resembles my setup (fc40, gimbal, gopro), im thinking the gains for the vision might be what I need.

    Can anyone tell me those default values?

    They have just been changed with the 3.04 firmware, it might not be as simple as you imagine.

    I am totally pulling this from memory but, with 3.00, I believe they were 120% on all positions except climb, which was 200%.

    but wow, all 120?
    Guess that is where the 3D gimbal comes into play

    Negative on your pic. When he said climb I believe he meant "vertical".

    A crash course on gains - the first 4 #s pitch/roll/yaw & vertical = settings to how the aircraft reacts to conditions (IE: wind, etc)
    the "atti" gains - pitch/roll = how the aircraft reacts to your stick movements. If you want a sharp left/right movement you up the "atti-roll" gain.

    Your best bet is load the defaults to your model Phantom then up or lower gains by 10% at a time to your liking. There's no perfect setting - each Phantom has it's own signature and each pilot has their own personal prefs type of flying.
