    Hi
    Just want to be check with fellow Phantom Pilots whether Jello is expected at total weigh 1250g (includes battery)? Ive balanced the original 8" props but still a problem. Tried the vision props but still the same. Is 1250g still classed as heavy?
    Im also using T Motors which should easily cope.
    Thanks

    1250g is a good safe weight with the 8" props, but I wouldn't pack too much more on than that without moving up to the 9" props...which you may want to do anyway as they can bump up your flight times at any given weight by a good margin.

    Jello can be caused by a number of things beyond just unbalanced props, the rolling shutters used by many small cameras are particularly susceptible to it. Other things you can try include using an ND filter as well as shooting in 1080p 60fps (if your camera will do that).
