Is it normal before starting a new flight the controller always peeping to be calibrated? I'll calibrate the controller. Start the flight everything is normal. Put the drone away for a day and start another flight, but I have to calibrate the controller again before I start. This happens every time.

No, that's not normal.

Are the remote controller sticks centered when you power on your remote controller? If not, your remote controller will beep when it's powered on.

Yes, and going through the calibration process is all normal. However, many times by just entering the calibration area it will stop beeping. I move the sticks around and the display follows the stick movements. I close the calibration and have a normal flight.

Did you try completing the remote controller calibration?

Ive had that problem and I found it was due to my left thumbwheel was gummed up and sticking a little one way or the other from its center position. A small shot of contact cleaner fixed it.
