    So I power up my P3P and notice it making an internal noise.. I assume it's an internal cooling fan or does the P3P have a computer with a hard drive?

    Then, I power up the remote.. it too makes noise and the lower left palm area get slightly warm.

    Anybody else noticing this?

    The P3P has a fan in the gimbal base.

    The P2 had a fan in the camera, but it was very quiet. My order is for a P3A W/Batt so I am in for at least a 2 week wait...... all this great Calif sunshine and no P3 :(

    I've just powered up and hearing that fan too. P2V sat silently but P3P has a distinctive 'whirrrrr'
