I'm no expert but it appears as thought the oscillation increases with throttle so I would first start on isolating the camera more from the aircraft.

that phantom is cool, would like to see that in person sometime.

the waves are from your props being out of balance. the imbalance creates a high frequency vibration through the airframe and it puts that jelly in the video.

My theory differs from the others because as a Go Pro user, the same has happened to my vids in youtube. Youtube wants to compress and modify your footage because of the GoPro fisheye look. It tries to flatten it and control the movement so that waviness appears. Tell Youtube not to treat it. Unless it's coming straight out of the camera like that... which it shouldn't.

I'm seeing 50 degrees and 5mph winds for Sunday at FARCC, thats pretty damn good for early February. Same source says rain & 56 on Tuesday

I'm working this weekend so it doesn't matter either way, if Tuesday is nice I'll get some lunchtime flights in

Makes sense .... what is a good way to balance the props

I get the same effect on my gopro, native video without uploading it. I play it back on my tablet and see the jelly on the screen. I agree, it's the prop, my jelly changes rhythm with the change in motor speed. I balanced mine and waiting to see how much of a difference it makes.

Hmm. Let us know what you find out. I'll have put mine on the plane and see what I get. I have the 1st gen GoPro.

The jello effect is a photography/videography phenomenon also known as "rolling shutter" among the video guys. It is common among the cameras which use a CMOS censor.

It happens when the time for the CMOS sensor to scan the image is around the oscillation time (vibration) of the body of the camera so it is definitely due to vibration. Camera or lenses equipped with vibration reduction technology will have less of such problems. Also I think during more light, this will be more prominent.

I would suggest to work on your camera mount. Mount the camera such a way where the camera and its mount has less contact with the model surface or body. Some foam in between the camera/mount/fuselage will reduce this effect.

Now I expect mine to be worse. I did balance the prop ===> should be better. But I also put it on a pan/tilt, which has more flexibility to it ===> better or worse? Next flight will tell. FPV ===> cool stuff
