Does your Mavic controller gimbal "click" when yawing?

    When yawing right on my Mavic controller, I can hear a clicking noise coming from the controller gimbal. Happens every time. Not exactly loud, but definitely audible. Almost like an internal spring is catching on something. It doesn't seem to affect anything, as the Mavic seems to yaw equally fast/smooth in either direction. I'm more worried about something popping off in the controller mid flight. I've owned a few RC controllers over the years and never encountered anything like this. Hopefully I'm just being paranoid.

    Hobbyking's site must be down, but thanks. Just trying to visualize a gimbal on the controller.

    The stick on a remote controller is also called a gimbal. People flying DJI aircraft don't normally refer to it as that though.

    Yup, that's how you can tell he's an RC guy! Helis maybe?
