Actually the failsafe will kick in when power drops below a safe voltage so in theory if something is damaged in the battery it could cause this.
So that may be why mine was glitching also. I'll rebind everything, and then replace my switch and hopefully my problems go away.

I like my dx3s even if the trim tabs are stubborn. I helped a buddy carry his gear to the pit the other day and his M11 is HEAVY. I don't see how you race with that heavy of a radio for long periods.

I love my M11. When your racing you dont feel the weight. There's to much adrenaline pumping

i like the weight of the M11, the DX3R or S is just to light, i move them around to much... but my M11 does have a spektrum module i like spektrum more but dont like the lightness of them

With a new radio coming out maybe I will finally go 2.4......I dont mean I am going to buy the new one...I was think a dx3s....if they get cheaper cause the new ones.....I am cheap everyone I race with makes fun of me because mine still has a (antenna)....lol....But know that everyone has 2.4 my ole trusty 75mhz works just fine....and when they get in front of my I just whip the ole antenna in there face....There fancy radios don't make them any faster that for sure....lol
I am looking forward to seeing what they will come up with though.

Bigger pack is all that's required.

something that rarely goes out, except on Spketrum radios.

Usually if the pots lose calibration, you have bigger issues.
Ok next question how do you do it?? The reset thing on the main menu or someplace else

Just a tiny crack in the antenna outer shell could cause glitches...

I love my DX3R. I run Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries - have not change batteries since last summer and I just dropped to 4.9v......

I rebinded everything the other day, and I didn't have any glitches when I ran. Went through 7 or 8 tanks and not one problem. Hopefully the problem is gone.

Send all your used DX3's to me. They will be obsolete soon. I will properly dispose of them for you.
