    I had a weird jittery shake occasionally on my aeroxcraft gimbal. I finally figured it out. I put foam pads on the landing skid to give a little ground clearance for the gimbal and soften the landing. If I powered up the phantom and gimbal in a very slight breeze, the phantom would move a tiny bit. The gimbal would adjust, causing a tiny rocking in the Phantom, this would cause the gimbal to readjust , causing a tiny rocking, the positive feedback loop turned into a jitter. It would stay jittery through the flight. Replacing the curved pad with a flat pad, and initializing out of the wind solved the problem. I hope your answer is as easy as this!
