    I hope it only sounds like that one time after an update. That would be pretty annoying if all system starts are like that.

    The popping noise in the video is the sonar system. The camera mic picks it up but human ears don't.

    And I thought the sound when turning that thing on was horrid. I wish they'd turn down the volume about 50x.

    Oh, that makes sense. So the sound in this video isn't accurate. Thank goodness, that's a real annoying click/pop sound. Msinger, didn't you listen to your video before you uploaded to YouTube? :eek:

    The important sound is closer to the end of the video :)

    Thank God. Made a comment on the video hoping it was something with the video audio. Glad that's the case!

    Here's a better video showing what I expect is the new start up sound. Right at the beginning.



    Also near the end they put it into sport mode and you get a really good idea of just how fast it'll go as it zooms up and away.

    Haha he couldn't even wait to take the plastic off the controller? Or is he the type that has plastic covering over his top grain leather sofa too?
