    Silly question folks. I exchanged my P4 for another P4 at Apple due to the gimbal making a little screech noise when I'm moving the drone around. Unfortunately, the gimbal still makes a noise.

    But, when I turn my P4 on, no matter what, there is a fan on underneath the body that's always on. I assume is cooling it's processor etc. However, I don't recall this being on in my other drone and looking at videos, I see others with the drone on and it's dead silent. I may be paranoid because of the issues I had previously.

    Anyone know if that's normal?

    Mine turns on usually within 15-30 seconds when the ambient temperature is about 25c.

    I did an IMU calibration last night and had it sitting in the aircon and got it down to about 18c. It took about 45 seconds before it turned on.

    Thanks. It hasn't been hot in my place but I'll try it once it cool downs.
