    Noticed the wires coming from the gimbal into the bird are bunched up and have a pretty sharp bend in them. Is this normal, does everyone's look like this? ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots - DJI Phantom Forum1443133982.273696.jpg

    Mine are the same. I think it allows more movement for the camera mounting to avoid Jello effect. Mine has a smoother loop where the sharp bend is, otherwise the same.

    Its normal.
    I wondered the same as you did Brian, then saw on a few P3's as well as on DJI website its all the same, its for more room for movement when the gimbal moves up/down/left/right in the air on the white bumpers/cushions.
