    hello I went to upload the firmware on the standard which you do through the app. apparently I guess it didn't finish. now all I get is no lights and loud beeping like an alarm clock is going off. I've let it to that for 45 minutes. how do I get it back to the regular firmware. ?

    What does your txt file results say? It's very possible that you may have bricked your bird. In this case, you may have to send back to DJI for replacement. I have had 2 of these do this in the last month and had to send back. There was no recovery on the bench. They were brand new standards too. Question, Does it beep loudly every time you turn it on? and does it do it immediately?

    hello yes it starts beeping loudly as soon as I turn it on. .
    as far as the text file I'm not too sure as I just formatted it. now I have version 1.1 on the SD card and I'm seeing if that will install I'm gonna give it a hour beeping loudly

    I just followed the directions. Updated thru the app. As long as it is doing something, let it do it.

    Is the loud beeping coming from the bird itself or from the gimbal? If it's from the bird, it's most likely bricked.

    these beeps are consistent like an alarm clock. . no led lights are on. only light on is on the gimbal and it's green. thing just keeps beeping. other people have said they've let it beep for a hour and eventually the bird figures it out

    I don't recall what was happening to the lights. It was flat-out obnoxious. Yes, like an alarm clock.

    Did you try opening DJI GO and seeing if it tells you anything?
