Hey Guys

Had a strange one today after flying for about 15min. Once I landed my RC showed me that the Gimbal was overheating. Weather was great. Has anybody else experienced anything like this before?

Was the video as stable as usual. Please make sure that the contacts are connected well and the ring is turned to the lock position.

It may have been an error, I use a harbor freight temperature gun to check my motor, battery temperature after each flight, you can buy them for around 30 bucks. They are a very useful tool for this kind of hobby.

Make sure the tiny cooling fan is working on the camera. You can blow on the fan and see it move normally. If not,      use a toothpick to carefully unstick the fan blades

The reason I am telling you this ... is because it happened to me. The fan was stuck solid and it took a bit of fiddling with a toothpick to free it up. Now it works perfectly and does not run as hot as before. during the firmware updates the thing got so hot I would put a cooling fan on the inspire during the update.  

Hope you get this figured out!
