    Hey everyone, I need some help. Recently I updated my phantom to 1.5 firmware. After that, I noticed the phantom vibrating when hovering. The gimbal unit/camera would vibrate as well. I changed the default gain settings from 100% to 90%, and noticed the vibrations to be less obvious. Only thing I didn't like was how sluggish the phantom became. It would drift and not stay in place. If there is a slight gust of wind, the phantom would respond slow to the wind. I changed the props to the new spare white props that DJI supplied when buying the phantom. Did a cold IMU calibration, compass calibration, and gimbal calibration.

    This is the settings I used.

    Many have posted with that problem. I don't suggest using gain as a fix for it. Some are downgrading to 1.4 then back to 1.5. Some are going back to 1.4. This issue doesn't effect all the P3s. Search vibration in the forum.

    If they watch the forum the should. If they listen is another story. Try some of the suggestions in other threads. Some have had luck with them.

    You have the direct link to the thread? I can't find it. I tried using 1.4 yesterday, the vibrations was there but not bad. Just decided to use 1.5 again because it's the newest firmware. I'll go back to 1.4 if anything.

    I see the same Phantom 3 Pro Gimbal vibration during hovering with all the latest 1.5 FW...

    Any thoughts on how to fix it?
