    Ive noticed that with my 215 i have i very distinct up amd down wobble while in fast, forward flight.
    Its really weird and i have been doing a lot of toying with the pids/tpa to try to fix this with no luck.
    Can anyone please post snapshots of their pids/tpa and reciever set up in clean flight?

    Are you flying in stability mode by any chance?

    Nope i was always flying in acro mode. I just reflashed to betaflight last night and will see how that affects everything. I unfortubately didnt realize that reflashing to betaflight meant i also lost my OSD D:
    Now idk what to do to get it back or moniter my battery voltage

    That seems strange as I thought you could only turn off the osd by the little switches. Perhaps go back to cleanflight and see if it fixes it.

    So when I reflashed to cleanflight the OSD came back on.
    Must be something in betaflight not communicating with the OSD.
    It sucks too because I want to stay with betaflight but I drained a battery down to 12.7v this morning because I didn't have a battery meter on screen....

    Betaflight and Cleanflight are not the same thing. They are different products require different FW and don't support the same hardware configs as each other.

    Ae you using the original props?

    Have you balanced the props.

    Check the props for nicks or scratches. If you crash a drone you need to replace all props.

    I am still using the original props and that is what I intend on using unless informed otherwise.
    I will see if replacing all props will help.
    I also increased Pitch I from 25 to 30 and everything else is default but i see a significant improvement with that alone.
    Never heard of balancing the props before but will look into it now.

    Is standard procedure. Many Prop balancing tools around. You may have a prop with one heavy blade. Its not that unusual.

    Im also flying at 40degree camera tilt. Idk about you guys but i like flying fast haha. Will have some videos on the video thread later. I got a lot of the oscillations out from rolls and flips but now i just have to deal with 75-max throttle shaking the crap out of my drone.
