Drone vibration problems and solutions for ReelSteady GO

by GoPro on ‎05-29-2020 05:34 PM - edited 3 weeks ago

What's the Issue?

  • If flying with a HERO5 Black or HERO7 Black, you will NEED to use very soft vibration dampeners to stop any high-frequency vibrations from reaching your camera.
  • The HERO8 Black and HERO6 Black don't have this issue and should work fine with any mount. The video below shows the problem in action.


How to Fix It

The good news is there are already some great fixes for this! Check out these crafty solutions below:

1) Use Zip Ties as Dampeners

The quickest and most effective solution is to simply use zip ties as dampeners. See the video below for instructions and an example flight.


2) Try a Custom 3rd Party Mount

Brain3d has a number of "ReelSteady Ready" mounts available for purchase here.

Happy flying!
