    The return to home BEEP BEEP BEEP is driving me crazy. Is there a way to turn it off? I'd be fine with one beep beep beep as an initial acknowledgement, but I don't need to listen to that for the entire trip home. In the DJI Go App, I went to Main Controller Settings > Advanced Settings from there when I scroll to the very bottom I see "Stop ESC beeping" its in blue. When I tap it, it does nothing. I can't find anything else in the settings.

    Maybe just fly it back rather than RTH every time?

    I don't RTH every time, but I have several times. Once, because I was flying within VLOS until I was blinded by the sun and lost track of it. I was having trouble getting it in the correct direction to fly home manually (I'm still new at this) so I just hit the return to home. When I regained sight of the Mavic, I think I was more relieved I could turn that bleeping thing off than I was to actually recover the Mavic. I have also done it a few times because I enjoy testing out the precision landing it's a feature they taught so I think I should be able to use that feature without having to listen to all that beeping, no? Am I way off here for thinking there should be an option to disable that?

    I agree it's obnoxious as ****. Flying a drone attracts enough onlookers without having the thing beeping like you've got a ticking time bomb. It maybe a good way to clear the area but it also attracts a lot of unwanted attention. A volume control would be greatly appreciated.

    +1, really annoying. Low battery as well, it's great to have an announcement but it doesn't need to sound forever.

    An onscreen acknowledgement should be implemented to silence it or be able to adjust volume/length of the sounding alert.

    Apparently.

    I saw where a guy on YouTube took the controller apart and replaced the beep speaker with an LED. I don't think I'll have the balls to do that for a few months (at least until controllers are available in case I destroy something) but sooner or later I'm going to end up removing it on mine if they don't offer a software solution

    I'd use RTH a bit more if it didn't hurt my ears

    I'm glad there are some other people that despise it as much as me. Is there a way to do a feature request? I'm sure someone already has. I mean... if you are going to take your controller apart you might just ask for the option first. Anyway, if enough people ask for it, they might listen. It should be an easy thing for then to update.

    Start a thread on the DJI forum. They watch it closely, so it'll surely be noticed if it gets some traction.

    Remember that your map shows the orientation of your Mavic, so in the future you can use that to guide it back to you.

    Yeah it does my head in too.. Hopefully the guys who are cracking the firmware can make a software fix for it

    You can reduce the beep sound volume by simply putting a resistor in serial with the buzzer. I don't know of how many ohms but it's easy to try. (I'm still waiting my Mavic) And your controller will still look unmodded.
