    Hello friends, newbie have inquiry with newly-bought P3A.

    The buzzing sound came right after I turned on the aircraft battery. Sometime It start to buzz after the camera twist around(warming up time) And sometime the sound came right after I turned on.
    This buzzing sound came right after I upgrade new firmware which recommended from DJI GO apps. I upload the video for reference.

    It wasn't suppose to be that loud. The phone signal interfere the recording. Please ignore the loud sound.
    The sound was like small fan running at the gimbal. So is it normal?

    there is a small fan on the gimbal mount, but I have never noticed it running-- look next to the SD card.

    I will record the buzzing sound with airplane mode again tonight. The sound really annoying coz earlier there's no sound came out until new firmware installed.

    Yes, look on top of the gimbel camera mount just to the right of the SD card slot.

    I haven't ever listened-- but I am a little hard of hearing-- about 30% loss-- let me check-- yes I can hear the fan running if I hold my ear close--
