Hey so great little machine so far!! Only complaint from owning every other model of your drones from the DJI550/S900 to Inspire 2 and everything in between - The most annoying thing about it is the controller/phone beeps constantly flying near objects and inside even with the sensor truned off. One of the main reasons I bought this little guy was to fly indoors but if this alert can't be shut off pernimently I cannot use it shooting in sensetive places.  I think DJI should allow it's users to shut off the warning tones along with the radar.  They are the same tones that come on with obstacle sensing but on the inspire 2 or phantom for example, when you shut off the forward visioning, the noise stops as well.  I don't think it's the controller the sound comes from the phone. Would be nice if DJI would make a switch to shut off the radar tones as well if someone chooses.  Perhaps its due to the limitations of it not being a "pro" model?

Not sure if modifying the gear will void the warranty.
Here's some nice accessories that should help mitigate the noise problem.

Thank you DJI Susan. I assume its a bug and the tone should stop when the radar is shut off same with all the other models.

DJI Earbuffs Platinum will isolate noise the best, DJI Earbuffs AIR will be the lightest ones, regular DJI Earbuffs will be budget friendly... endless possibilities.

I was having the same issues! Was trying to fly around inside my house, and in small-ish rooms the beeping never stops. I tried turning off all obstacle avoidance options, radar display, etc. but the beeping still didn't stop. The only thing that made it stop was switching it to sport mode, which needless to say is way too aggressive for flying around a house. Curious if I was just missing something that needed to be switched off.

Rip open the remote and remove the BDU**.

I have only flown in the confines of my small garden and very very noisy with the beeping from the object detection and never realised it was coming from my phone so turned the volume down on the phone and quietness at last... not sure if that's what you are complaining about...

Exactly... you can turn the volume off on your phone but then you don't get any other alerts.. on all the other models once you switch OFF Radar, all the beeps stop.. on the Mavic Air the radar lines stay functioning I think this is the bug on the app. I understand for beginners its a good idea, but there should be a "pro" switch to make it silent so I can work.

It comes from the phone I think... Point is, all their other drones once you shut off Radar it stops.

I think thats the point as its autonomously flying its important everyone is watching as something could go wrong. I have never used RTH, maybe once during a test flight of an S900.

yes I know you can turn down the volume.. just annoying it shouldn't be like that. I use it for work its important I have audible telemetry sometimes I don't want to have to turn off my volume =). Its not like this on their more advanced products. Would be nice if they could make a switch for it is something really wants it.  As its not their pro aircraft I do understand why its on there.  For instance you could be flying indoors and it loses GPS (or doesn't have it), then the lighting isn't great so it doesn't have good ground visual, then it goes into atti mode and you wouldn't know until you here the sound of the drone hitting the wall.

Sorry for keeping you waiting. I just got an update from our engineers that they will consider this in the future versions. We're sorry that there is no switch in the current version. If this bothers you a lot, please turn down the mobile audio at this moment.
