Gimbal Tuning

Anyone have experience in Tuning the Alexmos 8-bit board for gimbals which will be used on a flying thing?

I have had endless problems with removing the "shakes" while flying, when on the ground the gimbal is rock solid and close to perfect, but when in flight I would guess the vibrations in the airframe cause the controller to go a bit funky and not work so well.

The QAV500 has a "clean-dirty" section so a lot of the vibrations are already removed but somehow it's not enough and I still get the shakes.

The next thing to do is to use better quality motors and props but I don't see how this is feasible for all machines.

I have performed a lot of the methods for PID tuning, but I think there must be some kind of LPF which can help filter out the "noise" in the system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
