    So, my 3 day old P2 & H3-3D has had the gimbal fitted today and that appears to be working fine. It is pretty low so doesn't appreciate being launched from grass. However, the problem I have is that when I run the motors on idle the M2 motor is pulsing. The prop is running marginally slower and then it will pulse as though to catch up with the other motors and then slow down again.

    I decided to attempt a low flight/hover and some drift yaw manoeuvres to test the gimbal out. This is working fine but there is still an element of the left leg appearing even when slowly yawing right.

    The interference board is fitted. Battery was fully charged prior to start-up. Firmware on the P2 was 1.08 which was interesting as I was previously running vision assistant 2. It offered me the chance to update the firmware which I've declined.

    Would appreciate some guidance on possible causes.

    thanks again
