DJI Phantom 3 / 3 Standard Keeps Beeping (Why, How to Fix It).

As I found in most cases, DJI Phantom 3 / 3 standard keeps beeping because of faulty firmware and settings. Also, many users have faced this annoying Phantom 3 beeping, after updating the Phantom 3 firmware because of rebooting the aircraft before completing the firmware update process.


  1. Power on the aircraft and controller and wait for the beep.
  2. Connect to the mobile device to DJI Phantom 3 and open the DJI GO app. Then enter the camera view.
  3. Then enter to settings and format the SD card.
  4. Power off the Phantom 3 and remote controller.
  5. Visit DJI Downloads and download the latest DJI Phantom 3 / Standard firmware Zip file. Then extract the bin file from the downloaded Zip file.
  6. Take out the SD card from the aircraft and connect it using an adapter to the PC and move the extracted bin file to the root directory of the SD card.
  7. Then insert the SD card into the Phantom 3 aircraft and power on the aircraft.
  8. Once you turned it on the aircraft would start beeping as usual and the indicator LED near the SD card slot would blink green and red which indicates the firmware update process.
  9. You have to wait patiently while the aircraft keeps beeping, for a few minutes until the firmware update process completes.
  10. After a few minutes, the beeping noise would stop and would start a smooth double beep. But the firmware updates process is not done yet. So don’t reboot the aircraft right now. Many users have faced this beeping issue after updating the process because of rebooting the aircraft before the firmware update completes.
  11. Wait until the LED indicator near the SD card slot turns green and the gimbal stabilizes.
  12. Power off the Phantom 3 aircraft and connect the SD card back to the PC.
  13. Go to the SD card directory and check the created TXT file. If the txt file shows “Result: Success”, the firmware update process is successful and the problem is solved. If it’s not retry the process again.
