    Hi.

    I've received my P2V+ just a couple of days ago and I noticed a strange noise that I never heard in the videos I've seen online. Never crashed or flown yet.
    latest firmware.

    What do you think it could be?

    Look at the motor fit in the housing it may be touching the shell.

    You don't hear that noise because people have their props on, that's perfectly normal.

    The noise is there with props on. I wanted to eliminate the props being the cause

    You're hearing the switching frequency of the motors, it's a perfectly normal sound for them.

    I am having the same problem with one motor. It was not there on the last flight, now it is.

    I don't hear anything. Video does not play.
