hi guys, just wondering if this has happened to anyone else, I've been flying my solo for a month or so now ( no crashes) Got the gimbal and installed it and then took it off to go do a job with the fixed mount. All of a sudden I have a pretty mean vibration that it never had before. Stills are good but video will give you motion sickness !! Any ideas ??

If the gimbal worked fine before you removed it, I would pull the battery tray and make sure the HDMI cable isn't interfering with the gimbal movement. Make sure nothing else is touching the gimbal and it can move freely.

Check the 4 rubber isolation mounts.

Are you getting a green light on the back of the gimbal?

Are you using the same props?

Something happened when you reinstalled it, so thats where I would start.

Hi Maddog

Good ideas, gonna take it apart again and reassemble then go back with new props and see how it works. Ordered a couple new sets today. Thanks.

Don't forget to balance your props and prop hubs if necessary.

I would also check the motor pods for looseness and motor bearings.
