Mine does this as well but only when the batteries are not charged. The ESC only sees the voltage of 11 cells when uncharged. When its charged it then sees the full voltage of 12 cells and beeps 12 times. The ESC relies on total voltage.

Also check the total voltage and check it hasn't dropped a cell either.
