FOAM and dont tie it down to tight. I get the same. Balance the prop, try to throttle down when you take the pic
ITS ALL VIBRATION

I found that the farther I moved this camera away from the fuse, the better pictures I got. It almost eliminated all of the wavy lines.

I have put details on our web page that describes my technique.
