    Hey guys. I used to have a Phantom 2 basic, I exchanged it for a Phantom 2 Vision+. Just finished upgrading firmware and setting things up in the Phantom software. One thing I noticed is it only does the first sequence of beeps. I'm used to one sequence, a pause, then another one (shorter). Am I missing something stupid??

    No that is normal for a plus. One set of increasing frequency beeps.

    Jeezzz.. Got me worried there. I have seen video on Youtube where a + does the last 4 beeps, so I was not sure.... Maybe a different build.

    Nope. Pluses have only ever done the first set. Been that way since day one.

    Well I can't dispute that!! But I don't think any shipped like that. Your question has been asked in this forum many times and the answer has always been the one I gave.

    That's probably a preproduction version used by DJI to make the video. It'll do 4 additional beeps if it's using the P2 ESCs.
