I have tried little gain, and ive tried lots of gain and tried a few numbers in the middle and i just cant tune it to yaw nice and smooth.

Any tips i should try?
Try turning your Yaw gain down.

I get the same results if my Yaw gain is too high.

Multi Rotor Yaw control will never be like a Helicopter it will alwasy be a little mushy as we are varying the tourque as was described above.
Hence we are relying on the speed up and slow down of opposing motors and they can only speed up and slow down so fast without upsetting the balance of the rest of the flight controls.

I settle for a more relaxed yaw as i prefer the yaw not to upset the other controls.
