If a prop thread is angled that could cause it but OP said he tried another set of props.

The poor thing will shake itself to pieces if left like that.

If it is a gain problem then should be easy to reset to standard.

I just spent 45 min talking to the dumbest dji employee of all time. Had to get a supervisor on the phone. They are sending a new shipping label and will expedite. Going to try lowering the gains first though

Needs to go back to mothership.

What is PID ?

I cant explain that in anything less than a really long post, so if you really want to know: PID controller - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The TL;DR is that they are the most important settings in a flight controller that determine how it should react to outside force or control input. Making a gross simplification, if they are too high, you get oscillations and it may even go out of control. IF they are too low, it will react sluggish, unstable and wander about.

With the phantom you dont have direct access to the PID values, but the gains do something very similar.

I am familar with pids and tuning quads. The gains should not let it go unstabe I would think

********************Update********************

Lowering gains solved the shake. All gains were for some reason 120%. Hope this thread helps others

I thought those gains were to increase the aggressiveness and speed, what should they be set to? I think mine was at 100%? maybe one was at like 110%?

I can't win....What the heck is going on. Sent my phantom to dji to repair the dreaded stress cracks and just got it back today.... It has a crazy fast wobble on hover. I did a level imu and compass calibration. THANKS!!!!


Sure looks like props out if balance are these original props possibly damaged or new ones unbalanced?

I have had that issue on 2 occasions and it was a loose screw on the motor. My landing gear also gets loose sometimes. Spin the blades up during warm-up on the ground and see if any of them seem out of balance. You might be able to isolate it to 1 motor. If everything seems straight then I am guessing it could be the landing gear OR maybe the 1 of the 2 clear plastic snaps on the shock absorber might be pushed in too tight.

See above. The OP resolved this issue by lowering the gains in DJI GO.
