    dji osmo is set up static clamped to a tripod. The jeep is set up for street driving, tire pressure and sway bar connected to get maximum movement. As you can hear there is tons of vibration and noise from the gimbal motors and buttons. An external mic is highly recommended.

    very cool, pretty smooth. on my "want" list. :)
    As soon as I saw 15 minutes, I instantly hopped about for about 20 seconds and then turned it off. If it were 2 minutes I would probably watch it, 4 minutes maybe, 8 minutes no way, 15 minutes lol

    it's a bit long but you get the idea pretty quickly. it's raw footage, I will post a trimmed down version

    I think the harsh vibrations are cause by the gimbal trying to compensate for vertical shock, which it is not designed to do. Had it been mounted on the "Mountain bike mount" there would have been
    far less vibration and the gimbal wouldn't have been working so hard.
    Here is a picture of a "Libra" Gyro stabilized head mounted on our EVT (electric tracking vehicle). You can see that we mount the head on our "Vertical Shock Isolator" to deduce the vertical shock load on the head, which like the Osmo, is NOT design for vertical shock control, it's the 4th dimension of travel. I have run this car for 12 years in the film industry. Without a vertical shock isolator the stabilize head gains need to be reduced, reducing the quality of stabilization.
