    Hey everyone,
    Recently I got a phantom 3 4k and when I turn it on I hear a sort of ticking or popping noise coming from either the gimbal or the sonar sensors. The drone flies perfectly and the gimbal works fine, but I was just wondering - is this the sonar sensors making noise or is it an issue I should worry about?
    Thanks

    Yes -- that's normal. It's coming from the VPS.
