    Hey Guys, Just wondering if this is normal.. When I turn on my P3P and have it on the table ( controller on, Pilot app up and running) and I pick up the P3P and tilt it to the left and right the gimbal makes a noise when its all the way to its side I even saw it go back to normal when tilted. I would say this is normal but I just wanted to make sure.. Any replies would be great! Thanks!

    There is a hex set screw that probably needs tightening.
