    Hi all,

    I've had my P3P exactly one week, and everything has been working great. I recently noticed a weird sound coming from the gimbal and am trying to figure out if this is normal, or a sign of an upcoming issue? If it's a sign of an issue, I'll just return it now for a new machine before my 30 day return window is up with Amazon.

    Nothing wrong with it. Just tested mine and it does the same thing. Your maxing out the end travel of the gimble motors when tipping that far.

    Not sure that gimble. Sounds like, and should be, the gyro. Similar noise during a compass calibration?
