    I am trying to figure out why, ever so often, the gimble causes the camera to "jiggle" for a few seconds before it corrects itself. What am I doing wrong?

    Not so sure that its a wobble/wiggle. It is more pronounced near the top of the video than it is the bottom. Have you tried shooting video at an altitude you can observe the camera at, say 6 ft?

    It doesn't seem to do it when it's that low, I think in high winds it does it, but then correct itself, it's almost like it takes a second or two to adjust to a gush of wind before giving me smooth video once again.

    Important to note, this is not normal behavior even in windy conditions. I hope you get it figured out.

    Would a IMU calibration do anything? I'm not even sure what that is really...but read about it helping with this kind of behavior.

    Maybe a gimbal calibration. Won't hurt to try.
