So after getting the P3 updated on the newest firmware, i got a few more flights under my belt, and i'm still not happy with the vibration / Jello affect, if you skip to 7.10 seconds you will see some arratic movements. Should i contact DJI?



This was my furthest flight without lossing video link just over 4000ft

The gimbal twitch may be due to the battery starting to discharge or you hitting a big bug or bee in mid-air

Of more concern would be that you appear to be flying illegally.

You might want to read the CAA regulations on flying over congested areas, within 150m of towns and villages, 50m of property or vehicles not under your control and I would imagine beyond visual range if you were 4000' away. I can't really see my quad @ 1500'!

I don't want to sound like a total kill joy, but flying over people's homes is a big no-no in the UK. Think carefully about where you fly. There is a numpty from Nottingham who is currently being prosecuted for flying over football grounds and you are breaking the same rules.

I would suggest you make this video private, so you don't attract any attention.

Could that be wind effect on the gimbal? The rest of the video looks pretty clear and you were pretty high at that point. Perhaps you hit a gust that caused a bit of destabilization.

Just a thought since the rest of the video looks pretty clear.

Use the 50 Black dampers that come with the zenmusse 3 gimball. You can buy a bag of dampers cheaply. I tried it and it helped with the windy conditions in the UK
