You may be too close to the aircraft when you have the mode switch in “Smart” mode. Move so you are about 30 feet away and see if the beeping stops.

Speaking of Smart Mode, be sure to download the User Manual and make sure you understand how the Smart Circle affects the flight of the aircraft. This safety zone is an area the aircraft avoids and it can cause unexpected direction changes to the flight path.

I suggest you start by flying in Angle mode with the camera removed from the aircraft. Start in a large open area and get used to takeoffs, landings, and basic flight maneuvers before adding the camera back to the mix.

Links to manuals and other important information can be found in the sticky threads in the Q500 forums.

Shift key defect?
Rapidly beeping in Smart mode means roll/pitch stick is not centered. Move stick fast in all directions to clean the potis.
I this will not help, calibrate the ST16 by hidden menu. How to do this you will find in "way to fix drones" project attachment 34:

That was my initial thought too, but it was stated the beeping is not present when in Angle mode. To the best of my knowledge if the stick is not centered, the beeping will be present in both Smart and Angle modes. Of course it still s good idea to do as you suggest to rule out that possibility.

I just checked the link to the Way to Fix Drones link provided by @h-elsner in his post and Attachment 34 is for the ST10/10+. If you have a different version of that document just look for the Control Board Calibration for the ST10/10+.

As @johnnyb57 stated above, there is no need to shout. We are owners just like you and will assist the best we can. We are not Yuneec Customer Support.
