. Luckily I took a shot of the gimbal when it started "sreaming". ....I recorded the video for my dealer, who said, hissing is normal. Well, looks like hissing/humming is the pre-stage to death. I reconnected the power a few times the next day and with my last attempt,

DJI has contacted my reseller and my reseller has contacted me. Looks like DJI knows about the problem and it might come from 3.14, which introduced a hz-count drop-down.

I wonder if he powered up the gimbal without the GoPro mounted.
That will overheat it.
There should be a warning sticker warning customers to not power the gimbal up without the camera installed.
