    Where is it shaky? While recording it, on your computer, etc.

    I see shaky areas where you're quickly moving the camera or yawing. Other than that though, the footage seems pretty smooth.

    It's your props. Actually not too bad - but every few seconds you see a shakiness. Read up on balancing them - it's easy.

    You can also get a better quality video on Youtube if you look at supported video settings, and adjust the Phantom 3's camera to match them.
    My first few uploads looked like crap... after I got the video settings dialed in the image was much better.

    Or transcode to the appropriate setting before uploading.

    A few people don't realise the piece of white foam behind the gimal - labelled remove before flight - needs to be removed before flight.
    Usually the video looks *really* shakey in that case, but the youtube video is a very sedate flight.

    Did you remove the white foam shipping damper from between the rear of the camera & gimbal? Does the gimbal float freely on the dampers or is it binding on something like one of the ribbon connectors?
