    just received my ph4 charged everything
    CAlibrated gimbal 3-4 times so the Screaming
    Stops...nothing !
    Calibrated IMU
    Calibrated compass
    Nothing ! As soon as I touch the side of the gimbal
    The screaming stops,when I let go it starts again..
    It screams horizontal,and as soon as I move
    The gimbal dial for the camera to go downwards it stops.
    On the bottom of the gimbal is it normal for it to be hot?
    any help on this would appreciate ..

    It may be nothing, my gimbal does not do it as loud as yours but mine makes the same sound. Where did you buy from?

    Wow, can u replace it? It sounds like an attenuation frequency issue, meaning, sounds like it's vibrating at a speed that then makes that high pitched sound, something through the magnesium core maybe? If it could be returned, I'd kinda slap it it hit it, not too hard, just hard enough to see if it's due to a variance in tolerances, like a spacing issue.

    Lol, you know, tap it, hard tap! See if it's just being cranky and needs to be tuned up! Lol of course I'm sure you doubt as I do it's a solid fix, but stranger things have happened

    Apple is great!

    Just call them and shouldnt be a prblm

    They will send you a return fedex thingy, paste it on the box

    Tell them you want an exchange

    And once you ship it, then it gets scanned and then fedex sends a ping to apple server,

    You get it ordered automaticaly!

    gimbal motors should not be hot they can burn out that whiiiinnnniinnggg noise is from gimbal over load.

    Tighten all the screws that's what dji told me to do and yes my issue is over!
    Silverwingflinx on live chat with dji
    They said its normal for the gimbal
    To be hot..
    Dji emailed my dealer here in Greece that if I wanted a replacement and I said for the time being I have no issues and I don't want a replacement..
    I wasn't expecting a fast response from dji Germany for there support and my dealer here in Greece
    Multicopter mr Xristos
    And I'm amazed after all this..
    I'm happy now flying my phantom 4
    Thanks to all of you for your replies
    and it's good to have other people
    that understand!

    So by tightening the gimbal screws it stopped all the noise from the gimbal? Can you maybe post a video of the difference?

    I will upload a video with my gimbal clear of noiz actually 3 screws needed a bit of tightening..
    and that was it.if Chris digata has results as he posted further up from his experience then there you have it as well from him also.
    DJI USA and DJI EUROPE said the same thing tighten the screws and the problem will be solved and that's what happened to me..
