I ran a more flexible wire to the internal measurement unit for the gimbal controller. I still think the wire is too stiff but its much better. Before the change, the gimbal was freaking out on pitch but its behaving better and I'm left with some tuning to do on roll.

Good news is I don't see any terrible bad vibration issues, There is no jello on the video. The multicopter has some oscillations on roll that need tuned out.

My plan for PID values are gentle smooth flight:

Then I want to setup the controller so I can execute smooth slow movements on the sticks.
