    I don't know why but, most of my panning shots involving applying yaw come out juddery at best and hesitant at worst. I have set gimbal yaw exp to 50 and have unscrewed the sticks for greater precision and control. Am beginning to think there is something wrong with the gimbal? Any suggestion gratefully received.

    I have the same problem. I think slow smooth yaw is the hardest thing to control with a quadcopter. I wonder if it has something to do with the sensors and the feedback they give. It might be very hard to detect slow yaw.

    My yaw has improved with practice, but it is not where I would like it. Also, I have my yaw exp set to 30.

    Yeah, Chris, perhaps I should reduce the yaw exp to your setting. Thanks for the reply.

    Can you post a short video so we might examine it?
