    After all my trials and errors trying to get the Arris Gimbal wobble free, I finally found why I would never have succeeded. I used third party CF Vision style props from Amazon, and I balanced them, I never thought that balanced props could be the cause of this wobble.

    After I crashed due to falling through the prop wash of these propellers I changed to DJI Vision Plastic Props. Wobble gone.

    Ok, if you push the Phantom real hard in ascend or descend, things get shaky, but for the rest its like I need it to be.

    So, even if you have your CF props balanced, they still can frick up things...

    A+. Your work has paid off. I can appeciate you were flying pretty aggresively to push the gimbal to the limit.
    When you fly more gentle for your actual films it will be brilliant!

    I have the Arris Gimbal with the original Phantom (version 1) white plastic props and cannot get the vision wobble-free. It used to be, but it's not now with balanced props.

    Are the Vision props different?

    Yes, they give better flightimes, but need to be balanced as well.
