    I have a DJI Phantom ver 1 that at rest with blades spinning b4 take off is fine with the DYS gimbal. But once airborne it has a side to side vibration. It is not caused by the gimbal as i had the same issue with the Arris CM200. But now that i have a third axis, is there any setting to get rid of this shimmying. I did have acceleration set to 500 which alleviated the symptom, but yawing had uneven but fluid spurts. Anyone have a similar experience that they were able to rectify. I can't shoot video with this consistent shaking.

    Blades are perfectly balanced and motors are brand new

    I have an older phantom one and it's just so much lighter; I think you will always struggle to get results like the heavier P2 can - which has so much more inertia giving the setup more inate stability.

    As much as anything it's the heavier battery makes it seem more solid I think.
    Not sure really, the time comes when it might be best to look at the more substantial model rather than keep spending on the P1
    You'd get a lot better flight times too.
