    So, I'm not sure what to do? It sounds like screws loose inside the controller. Do i try to send it back to DJI or open it myself? I bought the bird new off ebay. Any body else have this problem?
    Thanks for the help and advise

    send it back if you open it will void your warranty

    It all works. How long do repairs take?

    I had a slight rattling noise when I would move the controller side to side, sounded like something on the inside was loose but it turned out to be the tab/cellphone holder. See if it's not loose.

    Try sending back to the eBay seller and getting a refund/replacement - DJI's repair process is notoriously slow.

    There is a batch of controllers that used craplastic. The mounts near the home buttons collapsed and the plastic rattles in the controller.
    Send it back if still under warranty.
