What could be a problem?

Just replaced all motors on my quad from no name 1000KV, to NTM 28-26 1200KV (5mm hub). quad flies shaky on stiff 10x4.5 props, however REALLY smooth on cheap flexy 8x4.5 (5mm hub). tried different 10x4.5 or 10x6 HK props, all balanced well, and works well on prior motors. What do you think the problem?
Im using MultiWii board (with 2.0).

ok. I will try. Thanks.

I tried to FPV with 8'' last evening, with NO GOOD results, it's really hard to controll my quad (I'm carrynig SONY HD handycam camera, with around 380g). I have to tune my quad for 10 inch props. rrrrrrrr.......

1200kv motors with 10" props is not a great match in my view, too high kv for larger props. 8" is probably the max on those motors. Not really sure why so many people use those motors beyond Juz uses them but he flies very agressively on a fairly light FPV setup with 8" props I believe.

Ok thought he was mainly using 8". Still seems too high a kv to me however.
Could just be a prop or motor balance issue then you are noticing on the larger props.

One thing you cna mayeb try is the following in the Multiwii config.h and then reload your firmware:
#define ITG3200_LPF_42HZ

You can try a higher value first as well and see if it helps get rid of any oscillations.

Thanks. I'm going to do all these things tonight.

Balance motors
Check/rebalance 10'' props
add anti-vibration pad between motor and frame (I used them with my old motors)


if still some issues, will #define ITG3200_LPF_42HZ
