    I noticed my gimbal was shaky, so I bought new remote thinking it was that. That hasn't fixed it. I have reset the gimbal and done a calibration, but it still jerks/ goes up and down if I try and go slow with gimbal tilt or when I stop at it's maximum it jerks a little. I am trying to figure out if I should drop the money for a new gimbal and just be done with it or if I am missing something.

    Welcome to the board!

    What type of gimbal/Phantom are you flying? Maybe a video showing the jerkiness would help, too.

    A phantom 2. Attached is a link of what's happening. I didn't record the transmitter, but basically I try and go slowly up and in the beginning you can see it jitters and sometimes even goes down. When I let go of the scroll the gimbal jitters a little too. (video is still loading but this is the link).

    did you calibrate the slider in the RC12 assist and then in the Phantom 2 assist?
