    Hi
    For the first time Today i connected the my new gimbal to power without any camera on it , it is making weird grinding noises i think it may trying to balance? , is that possible will it be balanced and power on without the cam installed or do i must first calibrate it with a go pro??? Will it be balanced without?!
    can i fly without the cam attached , it seems the gimbal is going crazy...

    You must fit the camera before you power up the gimbal. It is only balanced when the camera is fitted. Running it without a camera could damage it!

    You "technically" don't have a problem (or a valid question) until you mount the camera and test it. It *should* misbehave w/o the camera mounted - so your follow up question above has no meaning, in that any problems you're having w/o the camera mounted are like asking why your car won't start w/o any gas in the tank. Mount the camera and see what it does...
