Why is DJI Mavic Mini remote controller keeps beeping?
In most cases, DJI Mavic Mini keeps beeping because of the miscalibrated controller. Besides that firmware issues, temporary glitches, and features like low battery power detection, obstacle avoidance, and return to home also cause to beep the controller.
1. Miscalibrated controller.
If the Mavic Mini controller’s sticks are miscalibrated, the controller would detect that and start to beep. I think this probably would be the main reason why people are so confused about the controller’s beeping. Because there is no clue to understand the users to figure out why the controller is beeping.
2. Firmware issue.
The other reason why the Mavic Mini controller keeps beeping is software issues (mainly firmware issues). If the firmware update is failed or the updated firmware is glitched, that could cause the controller beeps. If you are getting this issue just after updating the firmware, the firmware could be the reason.
3. Temporary glitch.
Sometimes, Mavic Mini could keep beeping just because of a temporary glitch on the start-up.
4. Some Mavic Mini features.
DJI Mavic Mini’s controller beeps because of some of Mavic Mini’s features like low battery detection, obstacle avoidance, return to home function, etc. but in those situations, the beeping would stop once the action is done.
5. Faulty controller.
If your Mavic Mini controller is faulty or its battery is damaged, that also causes the controller to beep.
