    Hi everyone. Ive just recently purchased a p3a and finished installing all firmware updates and calibrations.I just have a couple concerns with the sounds its making. I have the gimbal hum but also a clicking sound. When I have it powered on (motors not spinning) there is a very faint rapid clicking sound. Sounds like it is coming from the rear, possibly towards the sonar and downward facing camera. I had a p2v previously so this is new to me. What is the possible cause of the clicking? Or is it the sonar working properly itself? Thanks guys.

    Have yet to fly it.

    It's coming from the gimbal. I'm not sure why it makes that clicking sound, but it's working as designed.
