    Hey jeremy.... just wanted to see if you have any pointers. ;) I have just rebuilt my v3 camera/gimbal. I put new pots in... be4 the newer pots it had the traditional gimbal shake. Now the gimbal is stable but the cam motor is buzzing sightly. Any ideas?

    More than likely you have a motor that has gotten weak from the rapid twitch. Make sure that your motor plugs and ribbon cable are fully seated and clipped. On the rare occasion I get factory potentiometers with a bad surface and it will cause this issue. It can also be the motor controller and that can be a pain, and must be replaced.
