    Hi all,

    My H3-2D gimbal (V2) has starting emitting a subtle high-pitched hum. You have to put your ear up to it to hear it, but when I play back the GoPro footage it is VERY noticeable and even drowns out the noise of the Phantom.

    The gimbal is still working fine.. but I'm wondering if it's potentially going to die? My warranty is about to expire so if it's going to die I need to get it repaired.

    Thanks for any tips

    You can try to change the gimbal frequency in assistant software - Asst -> Advanced -> gimbal. On upper right side is frequency drop down menu. You can try changing these #s . This is how they eliminate the high pitched squeal on other aftermarket gimbals. If this doesn't cure your noise, I'd be contacting your selling dealer.

    Thanks for that. Your suggestion didn't help unfortunately :(

    I guess it's going back to the shop.
