    I think this may have been asked before but just wondering.
    i've done it either way and usually don't just to save time on set.

    For Movi Pro battery changes, I usually don't idle the motors. I just grab on to the Pan tubes and give it some support when changing them.
    For lens changes, media card swaps, and anything that requires re-balancing, yes, I double-tap the power button to idle.
