It doesn't appear to be effecting the way the quad flies and photo's come out a majority of the time fine with a high shutter speed, but video I'm getting lots of jello.

I've tried 3 different camera's and all suffer with varying degree's... Has anyone any suggestions?
I use Zeal gel but you can use any type of absortion tape (thick). Put it between the camera and mount. I put two large pieces on each side of the camera screw and it has helped. I'm working on isolating the camera more than the mount as you can't do too much with the way the mount is attached unless you want to get more creative. My camera is light and I tried adding more weight onto the mount as well...helped a bit but the zeal gel worked better.
