    Hello guys a few weeks after a few minutes of the flight the photo / video stops and the button on the right to take the picture / video turns gray. I have to restart the P3 to resume functionality.
    I tried to change the card, format and I also bought a new but the problem remains. I also updated the firmware!
    It could be a problem of excessive heat in the gimbal? These days it is really hot.

    What type of device are you using. Android or IOS? What are the outside temperatures. When you say the video stops and the screen turns grey, does this reflect in the finished video when you play it back?

    Give us as much I information as you can, and you will get some guys chiming in to help you with your problem. Welcome to the forum!

    Can you still use the shutter/record button on the controller to take photos photos/video?
