I wonder whether if there are more users of the Ph3 advanced observing a small vibration in video recording ?It looks like jello but it seems not to be the case...it seems to have a rhythm of about one second , there are more users who experienced this?
I'll have this isseu from the beginning may, it is not verry disturbing but dit not have this with my PH2..

pulsating vibrations with a two sec. rythm is a gimbal fault. I had two of them if we both mean the same. There are other ppl here who had the same problem. They switched my Phantom and now its good, for now.

a "new" old bird, they switched it against another phantom but not brand new. But they changed the gimbal in my 2nd RMA and in my 3rd RMA the whole Phantom and Gimbal again.

I've noticed yesterday when landing an evident vibration of the aircraft just 1 meter from landing point and It was hovering and I can clearly see the aircraft vibrating and the gimbal failing to compensate this vibration... Wind was ~16 knots and vibrations were at frequency of around 4-5 hz as I have estimated.. I have a p3 advanced and carbon fiber props..

I also use carbon fibre props sometimes. It does not mean they are perfectly balanced. Important to check those propellers made of carbon and make sure they are perfectly balanced. They have no mercy.Make a test with the DJI non carbon propellers that come in the box with your P3A. Just to make sure you dont waist your time.

A gimbal will not compensate for vibration, it is designed to smooth out relatively large movements of the camera with respect to the mounting. The silicone rubber suspension mounts are there to try and smooth out some vibrations, but they have a limit on their effectiveness too.

In the case of this post, a rhythmic vibration may simply be an adjustment of the sensitivity of the gimbal, it would be a simple fix once it was returned to the workshop.

In your case, it may be worthwhile checking the balance of your props to see if the vibration can be eliminated.
