    Does anyone know why does my phantom shakes so much? I'm already using a zenmuse with balanced prop and shock absorbers.

    It almost look as if the phantom is constantly shaking it's head left and right.

    Is there a technique to fly to reduce shake? Am I not suppose to do diagonal or does that not matter?

    I didn't see any problem. When I fly without the gimbal, my image shakes. The phantom is trying to stay level and fly straight while balancing all the external factors (such as wind) and it is making slight adjustments all the time. If you had the zenmuse pointed down a little more, you would have never noticed it.

    I saw "normal" gimbal performance in your video. A bit yaw, caused by GPS compensation and 2D gimbal. Try flying slow in ATTI mode. Better results than with GPS mode.

    Do you know if GPS is active even while moving? I thought it's only when it's idle. So in GPS it'll constantly try to adjust yaw? Which is what I'm seeing here.

    GPS mode works EVERYTIME... moving or hovering, that's why phantom flies slower and consumes more power in GPS mode.
