The stutter in panning occurs because you have Hypersmooth stabilization turned on. The EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) within the camera is attempting to keep your image from having movement (stabilized). If the movement is too slow the gyro sensor does not interpret the slow panning movement of the camera as intentional, so it fights your panning movement until there is no more room in the image for correction. Once this occurs, there is a jump to the new image (stutter).
Ideally, GoPro will be able to provide stabilization options for the HERO7 Black so that a less aggressive stabilization can be chosen for scenic shots. As it stands now, only the action aspect of stabilization is available (at it's core, the HERO7 Black is an action camera). If stabilization options are not added, then it's hoped that the sensitivity of the Gyro can be improved. Of course, since the HERO7 is an action camera, how much they can change gyro sensitivity without negatively effecting the action stabilization of Hypersmooth is the challenge. Until a new firmware is released to address the panning stutter, it's best to keep stabilization OFF for scenic shots such as this.

I think the gyro sensitivity is just fine and is not the culprit. Its the programming and lack of optional tweaked modes (like for general walking around). The cheap Y4K+ side by side does perfect panning stabalisation therefore the GP7 is certainly capable for sure... just needs action from GoPro to implement rather than sit and do nothing about it. Heres hoping...

Same issue here. I use my gopros on my freestyle miniquad and my session 5 has a smoother stutter free image compared to the Hero 7 Black with image stabilization on. I like to fly fairly smootly at times for the scenery, but as mentioned in this thread the video has stuttering which is a no go for me and i'm considering returning the cam and sticking to my lighter Session 5.
