    Hi everyone, new to the forums here and had a question.

    Just got my P3A on Wednesday and installed a Gimbal Guard from RC Killers yesterday. After installing the guard I turned it on and started tilting it all around and noticed when the gimbal reaches it's limits it kind of makes a hum sound like it's struggling. So I'm curious if this is normal on a stock setup as I failed to do this type of test before I installed the gimbal guard.

    Thanks in advance!

    There is normally not a hum. I would take the gimbal guard off and go back to stock to see if it happens. If not, make sure you are installing the new piece correctly.

    I'll try that, it's odd because it seems fine until I really tilt it almost on it's side then the noise starts...almost like a servo that doesn't have it's end points set is the best I can explain it.
