    Loud beeping (very loud) for 7 minutes when upgrading the P3P firmware to v1.4.0010.
    Then it stopped and the familiar x-xx sound of file transfer started.
    Is this the new normal ?

    When 1.4 first came out, some people posted that they put their P3 in the closet or garage until the sound stopped.

    That's similar to what happened to my P3P when I updated it, but mine was nearly 30 minutes of beeping. The wife put up with about 2 minutes before asking (telling) me to put it in the other room! :p:D

    When I did this update, I locked it in a bathroom to shut it up :)

    Is that while you are installing a FW update?

    They already have follow me, poi, and waypoints installed natively. Perhaps you're wishing for one that causes a fly away?

    As mine is getting older, I'm looking for 'firmer' ware instead!

    Well first do away with the autonomous waypoints, just too much trouble there. But also add silent mode that can be activated with a button push. And some kind of weight-reducing function to allow increased endurance and a better look, but am afraid that might not be able to be implemented through a firmware update and might instead need a hardware/shell redesign.
