    Hi, this is my first post so sorry for any mistakes etc...

    I've had my phantom 3 Standard for a month and a half now and been taking some great footage with it, recently though I've been experiencing some shaky distortion in certain fast moving clips and I can't put my finger on what it is. My first thought was that it was just camera roll being really obvious but then again nobody else seems to be having this problem with the phantom 3 standard so maybe not?

    Any suggestions or help are welcome! :)

    I've included some RAW example footage below, keep your eyes on the spire to see the shakiness I'm referring to.

    Yaw arm loose? Everyone always recommends checking the yaw arm grub screw (tiny Allen screw at the top of the yaw arm).
    Mine was tight, but the yaw arm had developed some wear, and would still wiggle. I had to shim it.

    There's nothing wrong with it. Probably you need to record in higher fps than 30.
