    Flying into about a 15 mph wind from 200' and was curious if it is common for the camera to shake like you see in the video. 1st time flying in this much wind so was wondering if it's common

    Gimbal definitely moves, adjusts, shakes to keep steady video. If your recorded video has shaking then check if gimbal is obstructed by any object. Else all is good and normal.

    I have wondered about this possibility. Would very much like to see the video. I have never experienced this YET, but have noticed that the camera offers little resistance when moved by hand. I would think a strong, gusty wind would cause shake.

    Mine had a little quiver show up in my runs and changed the dampers out and that fixed mine .
    As far as inserting a video I just copy the link and paste it in the post .
    They are already on Vimeo or you tube though .

    You can't directly upload videos here. Up it to an online service (youtube, vimeo, etc) and paste the link here.

    If it doesn't do that in a hover I would check my dampners for a tear or just if one is lose to start .
    What I would do then go from there . Wind does not do mine like that .

    Check that the grub screw locking the yaw arm to the motor shaft is tightly secured.

    My new p3a was doing this first flight. I realized I had left a little piece of shipping foam on the gimbal. Took it off and it worked great. Worth checking for.
