    I didn't have a lot of issues right out of the box. Blades were balanced nicely. But I ahd the 2 rubber inserts that you get with a servo to mount onto a board. I seated them under the Go Pro mount and used some longer screws to attach and screwed it down. Works perfectly!!! I will post pics soon.. but it was a $0 cost and seem to do the trick nicely. Thought I would share..

    I would say that this OP most likely ended up with a very balanced phantom at least with the motors out of the box. Mine was incredibly out of balance hence needing all kinds of help. Using this setup with the rubber isolators as pictured and then mounting a screw through it cancels out a lot of vibration absorption. To really do it right its just got to be the soft rubber isolators making the connection.

    This link was past on to me and I bought one and it is awesome looking, very light weight, and works like magic:
