    My Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal is making strange noises when its turning sideways (Yaw), its kind of a buzzing sound. I have heard these sounds on gimbals earlier, i think its a pretty common sound on problematic gimbals.
    But i still don't know what is the reason for this sound? This sound has been there since i got the P2 and the gimbal.

    Since it happens when the gimbal turns sideways i wonder if there is any way to stop the gimbal from moving sideways, so it becomes a 2-axis gimbal instead, maybe by some setting in the software or in some other way? Is this possible?

    Also i want to ask about the H3-3D firmware, i am currently on firmware 1.0.0.6 and the PT2 assistant software says there is a Firmware 1.0.0.12 available, should i upgrade to 1.0.0.12?
    Since i have heard that people sometimes get problems after a firmware update.
    What new functions is there between the 1.0.0.6 firmware and the 1.0.0.12 firmware?

    Thanks for some answers.
