    Hi Josh,

    Sorry if I have offended you or Allied Drones.

    But I can't recall that I ever have used your name or the name Allied Drones in any of my postings worldwide in any forum,
    if so and I can't remember it please redirect me to that post so I can look at it.

    Greetings,

    Mario

    Hi Angelo:
    I'm just using all red rings with ambient temperatures around 70F/21C and not having vibrations.

    Some tests you might want to try:

    1. Fly with the optical stabilization system turned off so that it does not "mask" the vibrations.

    2. Do a test flight with the Radians (presuming you are using Radians) turned off. If the vibrations stop, then the odds are that you have the Radian gains set too high, so start adjusting them down.

    3. If the vibrations do not stop, then they are coming from the motors/propellers and you may need to investigate whether the motors/props are out of balance.

    Hope this helps
    Andy.
