    The video on my Phantom 3 4k is very jerky, not smooth at all. What to do?

    Is it new? If so, did you remove the small piece of foam above the gimbal?

    Is it the 4k playing on your computer? Many computers struggle with 4k.

    I totally agree.... I had the same problem and someone told me that there is a small piece of foam above the gimble... I never noticed it. Took it off... Worked liked a charm lol

    Lol the thing is I don't think I had that foam on my P3S so I just took the gimble protector off and flew it. Couldn't tell you how shocked I was when I played the footage back lol

    Post your question in the P3 4k Forum and you might be more likely to find someone who has had a similar experience. The P3 4k has it's own forum and this not it. You are in the P3 Professional, and P3 Advanced Forum.

    Good Luck.
