    I have noticed I get quite a lot of shaking from turning and also from the wind. I have only flown twice now but I am intrigued as to how much difference a gimbal will make to this. I am aware it keeps the camera steady whilst filming but to what extent?

    a lot. gimbal is the way to go. I have the one made for the fc40 camera, got it at HD $290. plug n play, have the Mobius on it, very easy to do, push the button set camera were you want it pointed let go button done, easy like sunday morning :cool:

    got at helidirect,its $250. take a look at the video on the bottom of the page. im very happy with it. you will need to join the 2 wires to the set hanging by the front leg. I used a 3in servo lead , cut it in half, soldered both sides, that way you can remove it, I put a JR switch inline. to save power when not in using camera. its a clean setup. good luck.
