    My drone footage is terribly shaky. I have a Zenmuse H3-3D carrying a GoPro 4 Silver.

    I have

    1. removed the White dampeners and replaced them with the Black 40 ones.

    2. Balanced props

    3. Fitted an ND filter

    4. Adjusted gain settings.

    When I hover the gimbal is shaking terribly. Can anyone help.

    Basic

    Pitch. 125%
    Roll. 125%
    Yaw. 120
    Vertical. 140

    Attitude

    Pitch. 260
    Roll. 260

    Have you been using that ND filter with the white damper as well?

    Some here will advocate adjusting the gains I'm not in favor of doing that. By increasing gains will also increase the reaction time and decreasing the gains will do just the opposite.

    I have not tried the White dampeners with the ND filter. Should I try the White dampeners ? I did find the grey dampeners were too stiff.

    Put the white ones back on and take that ND filter off and put the gains back to default. Have you tried a gimbal hard reset ?
    I know it says reset for a H3-3D gimbal and H4-3D is basicly the same gimbal and this video will show you how's done.


    Also make sure the gimbal configuration setting are to 50 ,0 and 0 and you'll fine those in trhe P2's software in the advanced tab and FPV mode unchecked.

    Hmm, I just got 4 new props for my p2, and after inspecting I realize, that two of them are bent. Maybe this can cause your vibration?
    Also a question, how to fix a bent prop?

    Try the hidden screw at the top of the gimbal arm. Need to get a really small Allen wrench and tighten it up
