    Flying or just sitting ? If after flying then it's not normal but just sitting like connected to computer that is normal but should not leave it on without engine spinning for long period even engine ideal spin creat enough wind to cool it down


    Btw don't forget to remove lens cap and clamp when plane on that will heat it up to point that will break you camera

    Hi thanks for replying ...it's getting very hot even flying I'm almost certain there's a problem with gimble when I move the gimble there is a scraping sound from the the bottom which doesn't sound good
