Diagnosing Death Wobble and Non-DW Wobbles and Shimmies Videos

Several people have requested videos that explain Death Wobble and diagnosis/inspection.

The videos are kind of long at 18-19 minutes each. Hopefully, they are thorough enough to help.

Again, here is my thread with written explanations:

Thanks so much for taking the time to do your write ups and videos Planman! It helped in diagnosing some shimmy problems I've had. If you follow his examples you might have to repeat them a few times, but be persistent as you will find your culprits!!!
