Hello

Can anyone please confirm the attach is normal for the Gimbal to make...? (See Video)

Basically when turning the Gimbal one way it make the normal motorised noise, but I get a squealing noise.  Turning the opposite makes no noise at all.

Also noticed that the motorised noise transmits vibration through the camera which I'm not 100% happy about..

Any opinions or thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks
Darren

I think it needs replacing.

I'm having exactly the same problem with my new P4P, only two days old.
I find that if I push gently on the vertical gimbal arm in a certain direction the noise & vibration stop, so it's obviously touching something it shouldn't be. The vibration is obviously worrying for video image quality.

I have the same issue with my P4P. It could be caused by the weakening of the gimbal's dampening rubber in the assembly due to the gimbal lock pushing the gimbal assembly up into the drone body too far. P4P Gimabl Vibration and Fix

Thanks guys, I have logged it with DJI... Not impressed with the Gimbal quality overall on the P4P.  This is the second time I have had issues relating to the Gimbal.  

There must be a quality control issue somewhere along the production line. I will update this post when I get a response from DJI.
