There is a fan in there to keep things cool. Is this what you are hearing? There's also a fan in the TX.

I was alarmed at first too but I realized it was the fan. Does your gimbal operate properly? No binding and smooth rotation via remote or while banking etc.

Yeah..I got mine a couple days ago, and that is one of the first things I noticed. Just sitting still, the gimbal sounds like a loud laptop fan... I can hear it from 6 or 7 feet away. Definitely louder that the P2V+ which was silent if it was just on an sitting on a table. Does everyone concur that their P3s have a similar sound just sitting on a table?
