    Not sure if this is normal. I just noticed it today. Anything I loosen or tighten to go away? It's kind of hard to hear in the video.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    I know that about the beep. Listen carefully. After the beep there is a little grinding noise. It happens outside too.

    You need to adjust the set screw on the main shaft

    On the main shaft? Like the part that connects to the gimbal plate? Can you send a picture?

    Well it's hard to hear your issue, but a common issue is the set screw on top of the shaft that goes into the gimbal computer thingy.
