    Hello,

    I was yesterday shooting video with my P3A in quite cold weather (-15C), and you can see the result below.



    The flight was pre planned using Litchi for iOS (beta) and generally worked very well. Just observed some shakiness in the video, wonder if it could be caused by the cold weather condition? Any feedback on the video would be very appreciated.

    Could the cold be affecting the vibration absorbers on the gimbal?

    Good point, it is a possibility. I have been flying the same route earlier in warmer weather and the video has been ok then in my opinion. Anyone else that has noted similar issues?

    Well, cold does affect rubber and silicone as well as other soft plastics. It tends to make them stiffer than they are at warmer temps. So I figured it might affect the gimbal' dampers.
