That would explain it then. About the only thing worse than Velcro (tm) for attaching a camera to something so it is nice and stable and does not give a jello effect is....jello.

Thin double-sided foam tape, glue, anything that removes movement will give better results. Even a rubber band around everything to hold it steady after the Velcro attaches it would be an improvement. Also make sure your cup is short and solidly attached itself. Big holes for the legs will allow it to slosh about on the frame, which won't help.

There is the 3M branded more solid version of Velcro (clicklock or something) that's better if you want a removable option. Proper name, anyone?

Bind 9x to wltoys:
Turn on rx. Be real quick now. Press and hold bind while turning on tx. Wait. Turn off tx and on again. Motors should spin.

this should also work turning on the TX in bind mode first ... (at least it did for me ... if I remember right ...)

I used velcro to mount mine and I have ZERO jello issues with either the u816 of the LB using #16's

the velcro is gone now (it does NOT stick well the the belly of the LB at all :-) usually just a piece of masking tape is the way I go.

I own both the mqx and the ladybird v1, and in the wind I have to give the edge to the LB! it is surprisingly more stable, as Dayroon noted it appears that the 'oversized' mqx props seem to get caught more in the wind than the 'undersized' LB props. this is especially noticeable flying directly into the wind. the mqx is much slower, constantly getting pushed up and down by the current. the LB is able to quite literally cut through the wind much more efficiently. even though it's smaller and lighter, it can hovers more stable with your hands off the sticks too. with the mqx I am constantly making little adjustments. the mqx is nice and docile, but the LB leaves me feeling more impressed. I love them both! *just from my experience*
I agree! Its the same thing for me !!: O

Nothing fancy here only tiny patch of foam to kill the vibrations. Vibrations don't like to cross between different materials. That thin membrane between the water and air can kill 99% of the sound waves for instance. Ladybird have also high RPM motors , lower rpm(larger motors ore gear box) are more likely to cause vibration and jello effect.

it really dont matter because the 9x stays in bind forever and the rx runs bind for a few seconds every time its turned on. as long as they coincide it works. the stock tx is a little trickier because like the rx it only stays in bind for a few seconds on power up. so they should both be turned on close to the same time. you can tell bind mode on the rx by the blinking led and on the stock tx by the beeping.

same for me. the velcro worked better than foam on bottom of my v939 clones. ive seen cases where the foam tape did a better job on planes where on others velcro was better. a lot depends on the brand of velcro or type of double sticky foam tape, mass of camera, and frequency/amplitude of vibrations.

i found polyurethane (gorilla) with pva to foam it keeps velcro stuck to the bottom of my v929 for holding different batteries. it has very little sticking surface there after you cut off the holder. for camera on top i use soft grey shipping foam with rubber band. its tricky finding the right combo due to fickle nature of resonances.

no problemo. note that the ud816 are cheapest but have a reputation for coming off. i found galling the shaft stopped that from happening.

Just rough up the shafts a bit? I was also thinking of adding a dab of UHU Por. This method used to work well with the brushed motor on my EasyStar.

maybe more like put a couple big gouges in it. strangely i had poor luck with glue (ca and pu) to keep 1mm udi hub on 1mm shafts but relatively easy to fix them reliably on .7 and .8 mm shafts with it. go figure.
