    I havn't seen this issue before: When I turn on the controller, it instantly starts continuously beeping until it is shut off. Charged battery for 3 hours, same issue. Took the controller apart, and checked battery voltage and load, it's fine. Disconnected all cables from the main board, leaving only the battery plugged in, still beeps. I'm thinking the main board is the problem, maybe not even worth repairing.

    My only suggestion is to, with the battery removed, short out the battery connection, same as computer mother board having the password set and you need to clear the password in the bios. The theory of having your RC problem, is static electricity is messing up a chip or chips on the main board, your basically dissipating all energy that is left on the board.
    Maybe about 1/2 hr?

    Has this happened to you before or just you seen this problem before.

    WTH, it is already broke.

    Check that it is not just that your throttle stick is in the locked down (off) position.

    So I have same problem,it is beeping cause one of the sticks is not at 0% . You can try to move sticks around and it might stop but you need to calibrate them. If you connect to the go app it should stop beeping but you definitely need to calibrate them. I've been having this problem for awhile now and can't seem to get the sticks to stay calibrated but that is definitely the issue.

    Tried to calibrate, but the app doesn't take me that far. I move the sticks in the calibration screen, but nothing happens. Sticks are centered.

    I hope that shorting the terminals means after disconnecting the battery.....
