    Hey guys,

    Got my P4 a few days ago and I just noticed that one of the motors is sounding kinda weird. Can't see any debris inside, and the props spin up fine, but now that I've noticed it, I'm a little hesitant to go out and fly it until I know how to fix it. Anyone else had something like this happen?

    I'm returning my P3p for the same reason.. That's a bad bearing. It will fail.

    Sounds good. Thanks for the help. Flew it anyways (lol, sorry, couldn't help it) and it was fine, but you're right—it's probably the bearing. Let the joyfully pleasant, rapid RMA process with DJI begin. :-/

    I'm sure it will be fast. Is there any "slack", when you pull up or push side to side?
