I was doing some very light flying on saturday and took off from a dusty area (improvised flight). One thing that kept popping up was a gimbal overloaded warning. I wasnt flying crazy but it popped up multiple times. The gimble worked as normal and didnt show any bad signs. Anyone else seen this before? I am hoping it was a dust related thing. I made sure to dust everything carefully but didnt get a chance to take another flight. Ill try to get it tested soon, but figured i would ask the collective knowledge on this board if they have seen this and if its the start of a biger issue I should be worried about.

I added the little plastic extra landing gear to get more clearance.

Mine threw this error a few times during initial/first battery pack.  Shut it all down and restarted everything, no more issues...

I had the same error yesterday (Gimbal Motor Overheat), I rebooted everything and it went away. Even with the error it appeared that the gimbal was ok. Hope it doesn't come back.

I get it occasionally when taking off in long grass. Works fine as soon as I take off.

I've had the issue twice, but on both occasions the gimbal had been restricted while on the ground, but the message wouldn't clear until I rebooted the drone.

If the error disappears after rebooting, no worries. Please don't take off over grass or dusty area or anything that may get gimbal stuck.
