My AutoQuad Y6 With 2-Axis gimbal setup.

Here is a video I took the other day, the camera is a Panasonic GF3.


As you can see the hexa is stable and goes where its supposed to gobut one issue Im having is the slight shaking that you can see in the video, its not vibration being transmitted to the camera, the gimbal is well isolated and if you touch the camera tray dring hover you wont feel any vibration at all. It seems that the airframe is oscillating, you can barely see it during flight but it shows up in the video. Yesterday I think I may have found a combination of PIDs that reduces that shaking but I also lose some of the tight stability that makes it fly like its on rails... Im still working on it.

Very good looking setup, epy!
Is that the gimbal, Seismicwave and Rusty started a thread about at RCG?
The GoPro looks a bit lost there. ;)

Were you flying in manual mode only? Does the shaking also happen in position hold?

Thanks. Yeah thats the gimbal kit that Rusty is selling. Ive been mostly flying PH, in that video theres a small about of manual at the very end when I was flying close to the ground and the shaking is the same.
