    After a few test flights I've only been able to find a few problems. The good news is that they can be overcome by flying more gently and/or picking better flying conditions


    -left leg in frame when pointed straight down
    -left leg in frame when yawing right
    -left leg in frame when banking/tiling right (dolly shot style)
    -gimbal bounce under hard lateral acceleration when trying to maintain station against heavy winds

    These are some clips I threw together from yesterday afternoon. Winds were reported at 25 with gust to 34. I was flying in ATTI. All backwards tracking shots had no right stick input - that's just the wind. I was feathering the throttle to maintain altitude during the gusts/lulls.


    The H3-3D, even with its tiny motors, works really well. So well that I can't watch my old 2-axis footage anymore because it pales in comparison.
