Default What is she saying?

Hello,

Got a Radian XL that does this never ending beep thing. Binds just fine, I have control, thottle, all seem ok. After a few minutes it does a long beep for about a minute. The beep stops. Then a few minutes later it beeps again, but this time the beep doesn't stop until I unplug the battery. Since I have control over the plane, I'm really confused as to if this some kind of alarm for something else? I'm a little hesitant to put it in the air until I figure out what's going on. The beep happens even if both the TX and RX batteries are fully charged, whether or not I'm moving the sticks.

Any ideas?

Default Update

UPDATE: I noticed that the long tone only happens when I go into the menu (not system).

Think I got it figured out. What I noticed is that whenever I moved a ctrl surface or engaged the throttle, the tone goes away. It appears that it's an inactivity alarm. As I am setting this up at home, I'm not flying it so the plane is just sitting there. So it's not in the state as if I'm flying it. The surfaces are not moving and as3x is not correcting. I'd never fly it and just sit there not doing anything so chances are i would never hear the alarm at the field.
