    Anyone else have this issue? Might be worth a look. I am not sure what the cable is exactly for, but I noticed my battery needs a little extra push to install. When I looked inside I noticed some wires of the ribbon were flattened out. After the first few flights, it got worse but does not appear to be getting any worse now with a few dozen flights. My only concern is a longevity issue. I worry that over time it could wear through. I contacted DJI but all they did was close the ticket. I cant even rate my "experience" via a feedback email since its closed.

    I'm looking at mine, I can see the place you are talking about but mine doesn't seem to be interfering... The placement seems about right

    My P2+ gimbal cables at the front of the battery compartment were getting pinched and affecting the gimbal operation.
    Had to replace them and make sure the new ones are clear of the battery.
