    So this just started happening.
    When I point the gimbal 90 degrees down, it starts to buzz and vibrate. It never did that before.
    When I move the phantom around (simulating what it would be doing in the air) the noise stops.

    Other than pointing it straight down, it seems to work fine.

    See the video

    It's a Walkera 2D gimbal.

    well, it just died on me.
    wont power on anymore.

    Guess the vibrations, then the noise was part of a long death process. And I barely used it too
