So yesterday I received a PolarPro Katana tray for my Mavic, and upon testing it out I see my gimble flipping up and down in a violent manner while the DJI Go 4 app reads: Gimbal motor overload. I closely inspected the ribbon cable, and I checked the mounting board. I also did a FM update and tried to calibrate the gimbal. It got stuck at 5%. Please help

DId you ever get a message before? I doubt that the mount caused it.

I did not get this message before, and I am scared because I don't have the money to get it fixed. The gimbal gets pretty hot, if that helps.

Oh man, dont turn it on again! You might fry something.

Did you try turning it on without the mount installed? If it gets hot, and the mount isnt installed, it will need to be repaired. Is the gimbal lock off? Have to ask that.
