    installed the FG-PH2 brushless gimbal and am using the alexmos 2.0 b3 but I am getting loads of vibrations while flying. On testing the gimbal manually I dont get vibes. Yesterday tried increasing the gain for pitch and roll to 135% but same thing happened.

    Looks to me like props are out of balance......

    Did you figure it out?

    I just got the fg-ph3 and I am thinking of using Alexmos as well, but I'm a bit hesitant. Was it the props?

    cool - hopefully its a simple prop issue...

    by the way, how are your flight times with the gimbal, gopro, and fpv? I have yet to test my fg-ph3 gimbal, but I would guess that with that alone, the time would be cut down to about 7 mins.

    It appears the shaking is mostly horizontal, are you flying in windy conditions, and is everything tight on the gimbal?
    looks like it's rocking back and forth a little bit
