    Have a look at this setting.
    Makes sure your gimbal mode is set to Follow - not FPV

    Where is it jumpy? As you view it on your mobile device while you are flying or when you view it on your computer?

    What mobile device are you using?

    What are your computer specs?

    What resolution are you filming in?

    Turn off video cache. Set to 30 FPS It will be smooth then

    If its playback on your PC? try a different movie player like quicktime.
    My videos jerk if I use standard windows media player.

    So the problem is viewing the video on your computer? If so your computer may not be able to handle 4k. Should be able to handle 1080 though. So that's odd. What MacBook Pro is it? How old?

    Also iPad Mini is not a supported device. Unless it's an iPad Mini 2.

    You'll want an iOS mobile device with at least an A7 chip.

    Did you remove this before flying?

    That's a good point If the video playback is smooth but the footage itself is rough.

    How about posting the video itself so we can see?

    Take of the white foam shipping support piece. It id right behind the gimbal, mine did not have a red warning label on it and it looked like part of the copter.
