Hi

I noticed halfway through the second flight yesterday that there was quite a noticeable buzz coming from a fan I guess,. Has anyone else had this issue ? And is it safe to continue using it for the next few weeks as it will soon be getting into autumn here and the weather will get worse. If it has to go in for repair I would rather do it then than at present.

Mavic combo was purchased from DJI UK in April this year, and would hope this is covered under warranty as I have only flown about 12 times since new.

Cheers

Is it possible to post a short video about this issue for better assistance? Without any details about this issue, it is hard to say.

Yes, there is a fan in the RC, that will kick in if the RC main board temp is getting hot.  So if you hear a normal fan sound from time to time, everything is fine.

Not necessarily. People have had problems with the fan malfunctioning, with a loud buzzing sound coming from the RC.

Yeah it's not the normal fan sound, it's very noticeable and sounds like either it's getting caught on something or the bearing is shot. I'll post a short video  later.

Thanks all

RC Buzzing

Here's the link @Dji Diana, it's definitely the fan as it only starts Buzzing when the fan kicks  in to cool the components.

That sounds like a failing/deformed sleeve-bearing heatsink fan. Definitely not good.
