    Opened my Mavic today and sat it on my desk in my quiet office to start firmware upgrades and change any appropriate settings. The first thing I noticed after turning on was a fairly quick "chirping" sound coming from one of the sensors on the bottom. Sounded almost like a sonar'ish chirp. Would that be the VPS on the bottom? Normal? Is everyone else's doing this? Thanks guys.

    I would say that you have excellent hearing.

    That could be because of the sonar on the bottom? ;)

    Usually it's silent or at frequencies where humans can't hear though right?

    What you hear is not the actual sound, but it starting/stopping to transmit in short pulses. Like the sound a GSM phone would make in a stereo a few years ago.
