These are high frequency vibes for shure. You will have to balance your props and maybe the motors.

Balance the props like others have said also...
What shutter setting were you shooting with? Video should be 1/60 - 1/120, if you are in the 1/1000 you may get some jello type effect.

Here's one from a couple days ago. Nothin fancy. Just playing around.

Bridal Veil Falls - Provo Canyon, UT (4 min 43 sec)


And here's a fun one from a new friends 1500fps high speed camera. We also shot some from straight on to see how responsive the z15n is when rocking side to side.

Slow motion RC Helicopter TREX700e AP/AV Aerial Rig at 1500fps (0 min 21 sec)


Cheers,
Paul

Z15 doesn't have the ring to support the lens like Nex. Yes i am using recommended settings from the end of doc. I will take some pictures after i get home.

OK I am just going to throw this out there because it made me feel like a moron in case anyone is looking for an answer to this...

Troubleshooting why a z15 wasn't initializing... it just kept on spinning around and around... my first time putting a system together. There's a g6 and g8 connector on the zenmuse controller, with one ribbon cable coming out from the zenmuse to the g8 port. I assumed that is all I needed. Probably 5 hours of troubleshooting later, after swapping gimbals and swapping zenmuse controllers I got the bright idea to plug in the extra 6 pin ribbon cable to the middle port on the top zenmuse motor, and the other end to the g6 port on the controller... and then smacked my head on the table when the z15 initialized. Yes, apparently you need both cables... which makes perfect sense now that I think about it, for the ability to use 3rd party IMUs.

I got the props from Kopterworx. They carry the whole range of wood XOAR props.
First try was to simply ziptie a square 10x10 carbon fiber rod underneath the arms. It did almost nothing in flight. Next try was to use clear silicon to glue the tube underneath the arms and then use some zipties as added security (as somebody on this thread did). This worked quite well.
At the moment i still have 5 arms reinforced with square tube. One arms i laminated with braided Carbon fiber sleeves. It did not turn out very pretty but it seems very very stiff. However i did not test it yet as i have been working on another Octo unrelated to the whole S800-Zenmuse stuff.

I'm loving that 1500fps. What camera is that?

Also Bridal Veil Falls is my backyard! I live in Orem. Cool stuff.

He said it was the Phantom Miro M320S. The files (converted to a full HD .mov) are crazy big at 15gb per 3 seconds of recording. Yowza...

It's was hilariously deceiving at the falls. It looked like I was so high but really wasn't. Had a little free time on vacation and thought that it'd be fun. I lived in Orem and Provo several years ago as well. Fun (but increasingly crazy-busy) place now.
