Well there were only 2.5 of us there flying.

Jay was the half. He was there in body, but not in mind.

Brian and I got quite a few flights in, despite his need to create a new parking spot.

The older guy who has a quad and other heli's but have never seen fly anything was there all night too. If he hangs out here, I don't know his name.

I installed the new arms as predicted , what a pia ! I did a quick test and the video doesnt seem as sharp !!!!!!!!wth i may have to leave workna little early tomorrow to either play with gains or change the arms baci till i uave more time to figure it out, its smooth but doesnt look in focus , i think its vibration or gimble gains l either way i ciuldnt leave well enough alone i guess so i created more work for myself, all in the sake of upgrading !

It's the gains in the DJI. If I remember right I had to lower them because the unit wanted to react faster than the motors could correct.
Bigger in quads means a slower stabilization when shooting video. The gimbal is the third party. First is the unit, second are the props and third is the gimbal.
Start at one before going to three.
A gimbal relies on 1 and 2. If those are right then the gimbal is the suspect.
You didn't change the gimbal, So I'd start at one.

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

My guess is the aluminum arms are creating a harmonic , the plastic was absorbing this before, I am going to mount the arms between rubber isolaters and the plate an should be golden , not an easy thing to do but I am confident it will correct the issue

Wow, that's a lot of bs with no pay! holy cow. I guess you'll know when its all over if it was worth it. I hope they know what you have involved! 12 years experience and all that went into it! Like crashes and upgrades, devotion all of it! That should make you the most well paid person on the set!!
