Good question. I came across that bit of info after I had landed on my last non-screeching-gimbal  ...

So did you return it and have them changed? How long will it take and hows the process?

Hello Bryan,actually it doesn't influence the normal operation of the gimbal. However,if you find it inconvenient,you can get in touch with our NA service center and get the RMA. Here is the contacting info:

I have tightened my gimbal screws and it still squeaks whilst calibrating after the p4 is powered up

Do you mind me asking why you have had 6 p4's?

My p4 is a week old and gimbal squeaks from the start but works fine. I don't care about the squeak personally as long as it's not faulty
