    Any online instructions on installing new dampers???? I was told that my white dampers should be replaced by the gray ones from zen to avoid "jello"ing I am having. I just never did this and cant find how to do it.

    Most reputable dealers give you a 30 day window to return your Phantom. B&H, Amazon, MSRP, others. Sounds like you should sell your Plus, cut your losses and move on to something else. No sense in being un-happy!

    You should check your props. I have no jello stock dampers.

    Could try balancing them, I found one of four was out quite a way, the other three were good.
    There was slight jello when it was made to work harder into wind or climbing - until I balanced it.

    I found if you are using FPV mode there's is definitely more bouncing around. Try shutting it off.
