    I cheked my props and the are balanced rightly, any way, i dont have big issues with jelly effect, but i can find som vibration.

    Do you know what can we do, the replacement rubbers of the Gimbal, what are they for?

    Geert, thank you very much for your answer.
    So, how does a bad damper look?

    Do you think that flying in GPS mode produces more JELLY EFFECT?

    It needs to do more corrections so it might do.
    You sometimes see it more when the motors work harder for example windy day.
    I can't see much to worry about in your video above.

    Yes, ok, so i put to motors to work with out the props, and with my finger i touch the top of the motors, those that are grey or black depending on the prop. I felt that one motor wasnt as smooth as the other.
    I find that my dampers are ok, my props are ok, so maybe i will have to check the motors using the video that Greet posted up here.

    Great video Geert. Curious, what makes the motors become out of balance?

    One single hit to the ground on a bad landing or a small crash - bends the shaft of the motor. Thats why so many get Jello!

    So, whats the idea odf selling expensive quadcopters to "normal" people if with any hit the thing will stop working as right as they show.

    DJI experimenting with us :(

    Do you have any video of the jello ? If it's windy you make some , but normally the plus is real good.
