    You guys tell me if I should send it back. There is a intermediate buzzing noise that comes from the upper gimbal. When I received it yesterday the gimbal lock was off inside the box. Im kinda nervous about how long it will last, though it only buzzes if the cam is 0 degrees. You can put your finger on the top case of the gimbal and you can feel it shake a little when it buzzes. Everything moves fine and doesn't bind. Haven't even flown yet because I want to resolve this issue. You guys got any ideas?

    There is a fan in the gimbal that should always make a sound. Perhaps when you touch the gimbal you are deadening some of the sound. It should be fine.

    I know there is a fan in the gimbal and thats not even relative to the sound the gimbal is making. Its the top gimbal motor making the noise and I guess what I need to know is does everybody else's make a buzz pause buzz pause buzz pause etc. noise. I assume I need to send it back
