    I don't know that I'd classify your video as "very shakey". There's a bit of 'correction' movement when (it appears) you adjust the view angle, but hardly "very shakey".

    Maybe list if you're using a gimbal or not. For a Phantom it ain't bad. If you're using a gimbal, is the camera balanced perfectly?

    try flying it with a lot less finger pressure on the controls and while allowing more freedom to the heli to drift a little before making slow deliberate corrections

    are the props balanced? does the Phantom 2 controller have expo?

    Sorry, yes, I have the H2-3D. Apart from my yaw adjustments, this looks very shaky to me not close to other footage I've seen from this platform.

    I have not balanced the props. Is that possible with these little plastic props? If so, I'll get a balancer and do so.

    I don't know if the camera is balanced or not. How is that done?

    And, with regard to those yaw adjustments, I find it too sensitive. I'd like to be able to make it mushier, less responsive.

    It has the new style props doesn't it, no nuts, just spin them on? If so I don't know how you could put those on a balancer.

    Are these the props you have?

    Here is a video that I did today with the P2V. No gimbal. Minor stabilization in post with iMovie. I was pleased. You need to play with your post processing and as Bart stated, just let the craft slide a little while filming. Get it started and let it drift. Do it in ATTI and not GPS. I am no pro at this but I have a lot of fun doing it. I just want to make the next video better than the last.

    This is exactly the way I feel. Each video should be better than the last - no matter what. Cool!

    Yes, those are the ones I have. Can they not be balanced?

    not on any of the balancers i've seen, there needs to be a hole for the shaft of the balancer to pass through.

    Guys are having CW and CCW threads machined on a rod and are using that to balance them.

    I wonder if it's just easier to put replacement props on. What props would be a good candidate?
