    image.jpeg To remove the initialize Gimbal Noise

    1 - with 1.5mm good allen key remove the 4 screws of the back Gimbal vertical cover ( pointed in the picture)
    2 - take of the back vertical cover
    3 - turn on the Phantom 4, probably the noise go out
    4 - put in place the vertical back Gimbal cover without the screws
    5 - put a little bit of paper glue in the screws to prevent vibration unscrew
    6 - put back again only one screw and screw until the end
    7 - unscrew 1 turn, turn on the Phantom and test, if the noise persist, unscrew 1 more turn and test again. Unscrew a little bit until the Gimbal not make more noise on initializing
    8 - make the same all process to the screw number 2, 3 and 4, but only one at time

    If works for you, please let me know

    The V01.01.0410 firmware update eliminated this noise from mine.

    Fixed for me too.
    Note in change log there is: "Changed the notification tone for gimbal initialization", but note sure as screws tip worked for some, so actually they might have a bit smoothen gimbal movement.

    Update: for me was fixed by firmware but screws tip would have maybe helped - actually I didn't bother about the noise.
