Quite annoying not to be able to switch it off after several warnings. If I know i'm runnning out of battery and I'm already RTHing, I don't need several more minutes of beeping.

If you're being lazy, you're not paying attention to your drone, making you more likely to crash your drone than someone who is careful and actively flying it. Just saying.

It depends where you are, and the phantom 4 pro goes on the same flight path

I wouldn't mind a way to confirm, "Ok I hear you Mavic, I'm coming home" no need to keep pestering me.

It’s not going to happen

I would like to have the option to turn it of. I don’t see the emergency in oh it’s heading home to a already set position. It draws to much attention and noise is something that make others anoid and signals a false alarm. I use RTH ALWAYS, its good to get comfortable using it .

If not we can have a user guide how to insert a hot needle into the exact position into the rc to silent it

Yet your manual tells you only use RTH in emergency situation.

Operation is noisy as hell.
If you havent fasten your seatbelt in a car , the warning sound gradually increases as a friendly reminder.
Lets have the software act the same way. Think about having a brandnew car, lets say a Ferrari.
Your fuel meters are entering low fuel left. Now lets add DJI RTH SOUND TO THIS. Id kill myself and sell the car. In no particular order

And please , the danger of an incoming drone ? Its not a nuclear missile we are talking about. Its up to the pilot to decide if it should be any noise or not. The pilot is the one beeing responsible in the end.
If we are talking safety as an argument , lets compare this with that any idiot can fly into an airfield with planes taking off. Incoming drone about to land ... Hahha

That’s a weak comparison, and nothing like beep for RTH , so don t compare the ridiculous with this discussion.
You have full control of the beeping, once you fly your aircraft no beeping, it’s quite simple, your manual tells you only use RTH in emergency, so if it’s an emergency you will need the beeping. And if it’s not emergency then just fly home no beeping.

Ok it seems we all agree. Lets have this as an option for the pilot to switch on and off. That way people who feel the extra attention needed can have his drone as is and we who doesnt like it and feel its only for old people can turn it off.

It’s fairly obvious who you are, and it’s also fairly clear you can’t or don’t fly, learn to fly then you won’t have any problems with the beep.

The remote of the Mavic 2 can be silenced by briefly pressing the power button, but if it gets to 5% the beeping cannot be silenced.

Hello all,

I haven't read the whole thread, so please forgive me if it has already been said.

From a developers point of view the RC beeping is really annoying, especially when you're in simulator mode via "DJI Assistant 2". I'd really appreciate a way to turn it off via the SDK.

Yes. Way too loud. Why?

Everybody holds the controller at arms length at its furthest. Some volume control would be very useful.

I see you in threads everywhere just arguing your point with whoever will argue with you. Is this your way of collecting points.
You stated that you have been to flight school and you know that the beep has to be there for safety so everyone around you knows there is incoming danger. Come on, I guess if everyone around you went to flight school too, then they may have a clue as to what the beeping is. Since most of them actually have no idea what the beeping means, they will be concentrating on the source of the beep and not the incoming danger so your statement has no validity.
I'm not one of those that will argue with you so I will not waste my time replying to any comments I know you will have. Just post your opinion and quit badgering everyone or is it your job to "fix"everyone...

Yes but if you stopped to think about it , we all know beeping is a warning of something, you may not but the rest of the world is moving on.
If you here a truck beeping you know it’s reversing, ifyou hear your seat belt beeping you know it’s a warning to put your seat belt on , if your in an airport when the golf cart carrying someone is coming past it beeps, this may have passed you by , maybe you walk around with your head in the sky or up your @ss .
While I have points on this forum, much or most is through helping others, I’ve been on this forum for 4 years ,on the other hand from what I read of your posts whinging is your forte, and while plenty can learn to whinge like you , it’s not something that’s in short supply around here.

And I’m sure you will already know with all of your experience that it is the responsibility of the pilot to alert those around that a drone is coming into land no longer under his control.

I also have no inclination to argue with you, it’s clear logical thinking is not in your armory, and it’s true what they say.

“Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.”

No arguing, just fact.
You just here contradict yourself. Lets look at that logically. You are right, all those things have a beeper to warn of possible danger. That is a fact. If you ever have been around heavy moving equiptment or cranes that are remotely operated, again there are warning sounds coming from what is moving, not the remote controller. Now lets apply that to the drone. The remote is beeping and not the drone. Now peoples atten tion is being drawn away from the danger and looking at a harmless controller. Your example proves nothing. And you a pilot with so much experiernce, is discussing performing a rth back to a bunch of people that need to look out for the drone. Apparently you went to the wrong flight school.
If complaining about things that aren't right is whining, then I'm a whiner. Better than just sitting back and take what comes in silence...

as I said your not capable of thinking logically its the people around the landing area that are in danger, not those 300 metres away, so RC will be at landing area so if someone is wondering about the beeping the pilot's job is to keep landing area clear, beeping gets their attention pilot keeps landing area clear.

im kind of amazed by people like you who keep telling everyone that the beeping is not for this its not for that . its those like you who feel the need to be mouthpieces, but you offer no explanation why the beeping is there.
its been implemented in all dpi drones since phantom 3 pro, so I await your answer, or is it you think it was just a mistake, yet year after year its still there .

instead of always throwing stones which is easy , why not give answers which is a lot more difficult .

I would never use RTH unless emergency situation as the manual tells . but surely you already know this.

No, I think that's not true. I keep off course eye on WHERE my drone flying and whether it is  bumping into something at the same way as I keep an eye on where my car is on the road and the surrounding traffic.   

Regards Leif.
If  you quick double click the start button, the rth beep sound will stop but ofcourse it will continues to back to home

The RTH function I don't see as a safety measure, I use it every flight! The loud beep annoys me a lot. I think the Mavic computer is perfectly capable of flying home and landing as well as I can do it myself.

When the Mavic is a few kilometers out and im finished flying or the battery runs out I press RTH and go inside and let the Mavic land a few minutes later.

I have never tried to shut down the controller, the Mavic should just continue the RTH procedure...

That may well be but DJI pushes it as a convience, not just for emergency use.
In the following link is DJI's official "Mavic 2 Series Tutorial - First Flight" video. It clearly states in explaining the "Inteligent Features" section that all you have to do to bring the drone back to you is tap the screen or use the RTH button. It is being sold as a convience.
If you still disagree, then maybe you should take that up with DJI and quit badgering felow forum members. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and you do not know everything. You just end up looking like a jerk.

Your troll baiting again, I’m beginning to think that this is your only reason for being around here.
Go read your manual, dji also show plenty of girls in their videos, but my Mavic never came with one, and I don’t need one around to operate my drone.

Its time now in view of your ridiculous posts to do one, I really want nothing to do with you .

I see it, as two things. The first are about Battery warning. By the time, you learn to manage the Battery use, and also know when to fly back home,and it's seldom you will hear the beep warning. The second thing, are about RTH function. I belive, that most people who flies with drones, are located outside Cities, and by this, they only have the beep noise, as a warning for what it is, a safety warning, that it's now the Drone and controller which fly the drone. So I do not see reasons, why to reduce the warnings!
