    I need help....
    My DJI phantom 2 vision (with aftermarket gimbal -- Cyclops Vision Brushless Gimbal for Phantom Vision [AF-CVG]) has got a very shaky camera. I noticed this phenomenon shortly after the quad had crashed into a building (sorry, no footage of that). I found it upside down and beeping like it had one of the motors disconnected. However, that was not the case.
    In an effort to try to fix the shaking, I replaced all four stock motors with Emax MT2213-935KV brushless (2xCW, 2xCCW). I Balanced all of my propellers and have done my best to balance the motors using a seismographic app for my iPhone (and instructions from YouTube).

    I have included a short video:

    If anyone has any ideas on how I might fix this, I welcome them!

    Thanks for the inquiry,
    As it turned out, the arm that is connected to the "roll" motor was just loose enough to be causing the vibration. When I tightened it the hollow arm bent a bit, so I unscrewed the hex-bolt that held it in place and wrapped a small, thin piece of rubber around the arm (for grip) and re-attached. No issues since! :)
    Stay well, and thinks for caring enough to ask.
