I am new to this and have only been using a small p&s on test videos with my Discovery. I have tried a few different approaches (including a $15 sticky gel material) and still get jello when the camera is mounted on the front.

My GoPro 3 Black will be here soon so maybe it will work better than my p&s or maybe I'll need to work more on the dampening.

Do you use any stabilization processing software such as Mercalli 2?
I use FCP X, but to be honest I only stabilised some of the aerial footage, the ground footage was more shaky.
I used only factor 1 if I used it on the aerial footage (factor 2.5 is standard)
The flashed ESC's make the biggest difference and to fly the Naza in manual, there is now way to fly in atti mode in 50km/h winds...
If you check my channel there is a Mauritius Video and there you can see what you get if you use dji stock esc's a lot of wobble and
with the software stabilisation the horizon is wobbling around...
