    Is this normal? I turned on the battery and all leds flashed normally and I was able to use tilt in the camera app but the machine was dead quiet. When I had my non plus model it made all kind of noise while it was running. I turned on motors and they cranked up fine. Im just used to hearing a lot of noise when I turn these things on.

    Yea it does that then quiet from then on. On my non vision model though it would hum and stuff from the moment you turned it on. Even if it was just plugged into software or sitting in idle.

    Sounds to me like everything is fine, mine does sometimes buzz a little bit from the camera gimbal, but that's it, it's pretty quiet.
