    Hey all,

    I have an issue with my GoPro 3+ Black recording a loud buzzing sound when plugged into the Zenmuse H3-3D Gimbal on my phantom 2. Please see the video below.

    When I take off, the sound of the propellers drowns it out (skip to 0:47). And when I turn the phantom off, the sound stops. Any idea why this is happening?

    P.S. This is a sound the GoPro is recording, not making. I don't hear it at all when I'm right next to it.

    I take it when you have the GoPro out just by itself and recording that it does *not* make that sound?
