Hi Guys,

Today I got my MA2, went out for the first flight and when turning on my remote controller, it kept beeping like all the time. All updates are installed so it's not an issue.

I was trying to turn on drone first, then RC. RC first and then the drone. Always beeping. In the end, it stopped beeping, when I picket the drone from the ground.

What can be the reason? I really don't get a logic of that.

Did you fly anywhere?

It could be obstacle avoidance because you are on, or too close to, the ground.

You should always turn RC on, then AC on.

(Sorry for the double post, meant to edit)

it is because there are obstacles in front or behind the drone, it will sense tall grass or a rise in the ground ,and also even you if you stand directly behind it and are to close
once you take off and go up past the obstacle it will stop, you will also get a visual indication on the screen showing how close you are as well

I have had this constant beeping issue occur several times now. It happens immediately after getting everything powered up and I am never sure what makes it start or stop. One time the beeping persisted after takeoff and gaining a fair amount of altitude over things like me and the surrounding grass.

If it's the obstacle avoidance system, will there be any indication of the issue in the fly app? I searched around the UI last time it happened and didn't see anything obvious. After reading this thread I will pay more attention next time it happens, maybe even briefly switch into sport mode (I understand that disables the avoidance system).

I browsed through the manual and didn't see anything about stick calibration, so not sure if that could be the cause.

When my controller continued to beep incessantly it turned out, for me, it was that the sticks needed recalibrated. The Go 4 app did NOT give indication. After attempting almost all else, I recalibrated the sticks and, silence was golden!

Face the same issue today. I flew inside a building. But I disabled both OA and APAS and I recablirate the stick, but it still keep beeping. I flew inside before few times but never face this issue. Can't fly outside for the time being due to temporary UAV flight restriction. So I can't test it in the open air.

Had same thing first flight, it was obstacle avoidance, you can see the bars on the app where the obstacles are, but not nearly as good as with the Go app.
