Is there any way to stop my M2P from making that robotic sheep sound, i had the M.Air and it is the same sound with no changes. Come on DJI either come up with a better sound or make the turning ON/OFF option available.

Why is that, is this the national anthem of the DJI? Can they make a nicer one?

Hi KKAISS, thank you for bringing this query to us. As of the time being, the option for disabling the startup tone is not available. We do welcome your suggestion with creating a better tone.  I will be forwarding this to our R&D's for them to know and maybe they could also look into considering your suggestion with setting the proper expectation that there's no guarantee this will be added on the next update. Your patience and support are highly valued. Thank you.

This has been DJI's signature wake up tone since the beginning for thier devices. Too bad it annoys you because I think it's there to stay. It's a unique familiar tone that has come to make people think of DJI when they hear it. Their marketing team would most likely never let thier engineers change it. I happen to like the sound - it tells me my drone is awake and happy.. In any case, there are far more things to be annoyed about when it comes to DJI than that sound.

I happen to like the tones. It lets you know the drone is booted up as all RC electric motors do.

Funny story. Some of it sounds odd, but this really happened. I was afraid to even post a question about it, because it was so bizarre. After charging three batteries, I put one in the drone on a table and the other two in my bag. Was just sitting there powered off and happy, waiting to be packed to go out and fly. Was on the phone in a completely different room about an hour later and heard the start-up tone. Go back to the drone, because of the easily recognized sound, and there it was, powered on, blinking its lights and ready to fly. Strangest thing I've ever had happen with a DJI drone. I can't imagine how it happened, as the power starts at the battery and the power up protection procedure is pretty good. The gimbal clamp was on, so that wasn't great. Now I usually keep the batteries out of the craft.
Anyway, it was that tone that let me know something was happening, so I appreciate it

Still it sounds like a robotic sheep... At least change the tone to a beep or click. It's not that hard.

This is really strange and scary at the same time, its either one of your family members pressed the power button or you have ghost living there lol.

The tone is too ugly and should be either changed or a choice to turn it on or off.

Good reminder to never store the battery in the aircraft!

Just myself home, so I'm thinking ghost

I'm hoping this was a battery firmware bug and it's been addressed. Could have been a one in a million static event. Who knows?
Seriously freaked me out, and I'll probably never forget it. I prefer things make sense.
Wasn't ever going to mention it, but the startup tone post gave me the opportunity to present it anecdotally, and as stated above, it is a good reminder to not store batteries in the craft.

They should at least let us pick from different sounds. That would be nice.

I don't think you are funny, I have asked a question for SMART people to answer, and since you are not one of them then get lost.

If I don't like something and it cannot be change, plain and simple "don't buy the product".  DO NOT TRY TO REINVENT THE WHEEL

You really think that was a "SMART" question?

Incidentally I fully agree.  It is a "reassuring" tone to let one know that everything is fine.

I think that wanting to change the tone may be a VALID Question.  Disabling completely?  Maybe not as it is supposed to let one know everything is ok.

That's a very strange comparison. Didn't even know there were robotic sheep and certainly don't know what they sound like. Does not resemble real sheep sounds at all. I think the DJI startup tone resembles internet dialup modem sounds. On the internet, those sounds were the calling and receiving modems handshake confirmation. Back in the dialup days, it was a happy sound because it meant your internet connection was working. When I here my drone make a similar sound, it makes me think my drone is working.

Thank you for your thoughts and understanding. I fully agree. For me, a pair of wire snipper will do the job

I'd also like the option to disable the start up sound (or at least turn the volume down).  It's not a nice sound and it's so darn loud.  At least be able to make it quieter (although a completely silent start with just lights to indicate status would be much nicer).  It's fine out and about, but when you're home (and it's late and gf is fast asleep) and you want to power it up to copy footage off the internal storage, then you either risk waking partner up or have to wait until morning to copy the files off!  
And the fact that it's a cooperate logo sound that you can't disable is just so....Apple.
