    What was your son attempting to do before the beeping started?

    If you stop the firmware update before it is finished, sometimes when you turn it on again to try the firmware update again it will beep the entire time as a warning that it is still working. This can last upto 20 minutes sometimes.

    Reformat the card load the current firmware and reinstall. It will make the lousd beep for a long time then it will update. I put mine in the garage so I didn't have to listen to it. Don't stop the update until it complete.

    Thanks guys--my sounded like a car alarm. I was ready to rip the card out, re-start the quad, call DJI, etc.

    I let it beep for about 15 minutes, it finally stopped and everything is up to date.

    Just be patient--it takes a while to go through the process but it is unsettling since I've never heard my P3 beep like that. I wish I could use the remote to *MAKE* it sound like that. It would be of great assistance if you P3 topples into some tall grass our just to get someone's attention when the P3 is in the air (I know--some idiot would cover his running lights with duct tape and send it over his neighbors house at midnight--just for fun)
