Setup Routine 1 Pro/X5? What caused gimbal noise?

I have a question on best setup routine for Inspire 1 Pro (X5).

As background, I came from the Phantom 3 Pro world, where you pull everything out of the case, turn on and go.

I have setup the IP1 a few times and had issues getting the camera mounted. In one case, I think I might have turned on and then put on the camera. And did it holding the unit upside down. So when I turned right side up it sounded like stuff was grinding. (i guess having battery in wile attaching the camera is not a good idea..)

I then realized powering up might be the last thing to do.

Anyone have a routine?

My guess is this might be mine, now.

1) Pull out inspire and camera.
2) Attach. (do people turn it upside to attach or do with proper orientation and get lower or do above their head???)
3) Attach props/lock.
4) Setup controller, insert ipad/tablet/phone, connect. Power one controller.
5) Insert batter and power up.
6) Wait for GPS and home point to installed.
7) Compass calibration

Sounds like a dumb question but the inspire is more of a process than the P3P. Thought I would ask the experts.

Thanks in advance.
