    hi everyone,

    I had a minor crash the other week which snapped the vibration plate. I replaced this and ever since the video quality has taken a real knock. Video seems really low quality, even tho set in 2.7k

    I have viewed video before and after crash and def a major difference. Have checked to see I'm gimbal was mis aligned but looks ok.

    Any ideas??

    Did you do the IMU calibrate and a Gimbal calibrate?

    Hard to discern what's wrong with the first video in terms of video quality. But I did notice horizontal jitter or vibration. Check prop balance as well.

    To check if the props are balanced or not in the field, I hover the drone just within arm's reach. I then hold on to one of the vertical part of the leg and feel it if there's substantial vibration. Hard to describe it but I also have a Dubro prop balancer so I have a baseline 'feeling' of how the aircraft should vibrate with all props perfectly balanced.
