    Hi Guys

    In my attached video, is the wobbling quality caused by jello effect or something else (my cheap Chinese gimbal perhaps) ?

    It's not really jello, looks like the whole camera and gimbal are bouncing.
    Stiffer or softer rubber balls might help.
    Still going to be wise to check props are balanced.

    I believe I have now solved the problem. With my cheapy gimbal all that holds the gopro in place is the Velcro strap which means the camera is actually fairly loose on the gimbal. Using just a bit of blu-tac along the bottom to hold the camera firmly seems to have cured the wobble.

    Thanks for the help.
