Does anyone else have this tick coming from their camera? My P4 is only about a month old. It seems odd. The audio in the video makes it seem louder, but it gives you the idea. Thoughts?

That sound is normal. It's coming from the VPS.

Normal. It's the VPS system sending out a SONAR like ping. It pings the ground and it bounces back up to the P4. P4 will know how high it is (up to 30 feet) when it doesn't have GPS lock.

Good to know. What a relief. I had a Ghost who's gimbal made weird noises, so I was a little concerned.

I noticed when I made this video. I thought it was some interference lol
I didn't notice it without the video though, in person. I'll pick it up next time and try to hear it with my ear. I don't think I can detect sonar
