Firmware V4.8 beeps continuously

Is it normal for a green HoverFly Pro board to beep continuously after arming? I just upgraded to firmware V4.8. It flew fine but after the 3 beeps arming tone it continue to beep. I cannot find any information on the user guide V4.

Thanks

Yes - it is normal. It stops as soon as power is applied. Just an extra safety alert! It is so easy to land and forget to disarm - so this way you don'y forget

Thanks Pete. I thought it did stop once I throttle up but pretty hard to figure out with the prop noise.

This is a really common question - I might have to lobby to change our company motto to "There's nothing wrong with it! The beeping is normal, really!"

But yes, this change is actually the very first note in the change-log for version 4.8:

It was also a Tip of the Week in April:

Nothing to worry about - just a safety feature to help prevent mishaps like this one (not for the squeamish):
