I may spend too much time reading about others troubles and starting to invent my own but the last few flights I have had the drone itself (not the gimbal.. the whole bird) is shaking like its shivering much as a cold wet person would. I changed all props, updated all downloads etc but its still going on. it doesnt seem to effect anything picture or video-wise but it looks grim (to me anyway) anyone else ever seen this happen?

Insure your props are inserted correctly and also not broken/chipped.

Check 2 more things. 1 - that the threaded inserts in the props are seated straight. 2 - the motor shafts aren't bent. You should be able to see if there is any wobble by spinning the props at a slow speed.

Problem solved. I didnt realize there is a slight difference between DJI props and aftermarket Phantom props. one has a slightly raised black/silver center and the other is flatter. there was a mix going on.

Thanks everyone.

@"...slightly raised black/silver center..."

Ummm...you aren't speaking of the old 2-piece props from the phantom 2 are you?

Those props are the normal white plastic, but the threaded area are metal inserts physically colored silver and black.

This differs from the P3 props which are 100% plastic and the tops are simply painted silver or black.

Now while I admittedly cannot find any documentation to back this up (and I really would like to see it if it exists), from everything I've read it seems to be the general consensus that DJI advises against 2-piece propellers being used on the e310 motors.
