    I'm getting a high pitched whistling sound when i fully push the right stick in any direction. its not loud when the drone is close. but at the same time i can hear it from 100ft up and out. a high pitched whistling sound. it just started today. She flies as good as new.
    any ideas? should i be worried? no noise when I'm stationary or moving normally.

    Do you have any prop damage?

    mine didn't start until i starting pivoting a lot. i usually don't pivot much but in the past 2 days i have been to simulate a a ufo. thats when it started.

    Props are in perfect condition (other than some bug blood). never damaged

    i just took the props off and ran the motors and I'm not getting the same sound. only during flying
    should i be worried

    Mine whistles also sometimes. I haven't checked when exactly it does it but it flies just fine. Has to be the props tho cause if I fire it up indoors with no props and move sticks all around it doesn't whistle. Has to be an harmonic or the like with a prop or two. I am not worried about it. I might try switching out 1 prop at a time then testing to see if I can isolate it to a prop.

    I've heard mine whistle as well, but I've had zero flight issues. It flies so smoothly that it almost brings a tear to my eye.
