    If I climb fast straight up I noticed I get a little gimbal shake. It's only on full up climb. Anyone else experiencing this? I'm trying to see if it's common or a problem.

    Just curious, was the camera pointed straight down by any chance?

    Nope, just the 45 degree angle it defaults to on boot up. I noticed it as soon as I took off. If I do a slow ascent no problem, but fast aggressive it does it. My old Vision didn't do it but it had more of a stable fixed gimbal. Maybe the full blast of air turbulence to much for gimbal on Vision+. It doesn't do it flying full speed any any direction except straight up. I need some comparisons before my 30 days expires!

    It happens. The dampeners are less rigid (and smaller) than those on the P2V. This causes the gimbal to easily vibrate when you're going full throttle. It can cause jello. The lesson I've learned is not to film at full throttle without expecting such.
