    Is this normal? Notice how the video is jerky when the camera is pointed straight down (from
    about 17seconds into the video)

    Are you holding the wheel in the "down" position even after it has pointed straight down? Make sure there is nothing IN the movement areas of the gimbal. Sand, or debris. Have you added any gimbal mods?

    I think it was probably because I was holding the wheel in the down position. It was my first flight so still a lot to learn. I flew again yesterday and noticed I could only reproduce the jerkiness when holding down the wheel. Thanks for the response
