Default DX3R issue

I have been using a DX3R for quite awhile, pretty much a few months after it came out. I experienced an issue yesterday that I did not expect. The transmitter worked fine in the morning at practice and then when quals started model #2 on the transmitter just stopped working. I thought it needed to be re binded but it would not bind, I checked the receiver with a backup and still same thing it would not bind, finally a buddy suggested that I try a different model # on the transmitter and that was it. I know I can send it back and they will take care of it, but I was wondering if anyone had a similar issue and if it got worse or if it just stayed with 1 non-working model?

I had one do the same thing. I kept trying for 2 weeks after it happened and it never worked so I sent it in. Maybe try the Radio/Electroncics thread. Someone might know in there. Good luck

Frank I think there is an option there somewhere to do a master reset. It will reset all your epa's and such but it would be worth a shot. This is just an idea and I haven't tried it. If that doesn't work I'm not sure your gonna get the answer here and you probably should just send it in.

Anks guys for the response. Ya I did try to rebind and try and try it's like that model # just died. I just don't want it to get worse. I'll try the radio/ electronics section thanks.
