    Have had a Phantom since Mid May and just today set a camera up
    I've been hearing alot about Jello but looks like I got the shakes instead.
    It's just a cheap Kodak Playsport shooting 720x1280
    What's the vibration look like it was caused by?

    That looks to me like regular prop turbulence, this happens if you drop straight down into the air you've disturbed. Only way around it is to descend while moving forward or in a circle to clear the bad air, the Phantom can get pretty rough with a fast descent and you want to avoid this as its also shaking the frame to bits while doing this. Some props are worse then others but the more lift a prop gives the more it disturbs the air below so you need to avoid flying through that if you can.
