    Since I installed the Phantom 2 auto tightening propellers to my Phantom V1.1 I had a considerable increase of jello effect on my videos.

    Considering hat with the stock propellers I managed to decrease to a near unperceptive level jello effect adding some padding, this is not good

    As anybody experienced the same effect with Phantom 2 propellers?

    Any ideas to bring jello back under control.

    Hi Columbus,
    I've been running the phantom 1.1.1 with Vision props since they came out and haven't noticed any Jello at all. I'm running with a zenmuse and the 4 anti vibration balls. Are you attached directly to the phantom body?

    750r that could be the reason then, I've bought them on ebay at a very reasonable price (perhaps too much) at http://www.ebay.com/itm/271315359254?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

    I think it is not possible to balance them, I do have a balancer buy they do not have the hole :shock:
