Default HELP!!!! FX-Pro

i've bought a FX-Pro, installed and facing a problem now.

at step 10, point No.3 says:

"Press and hold the MODE button on the speed control for 3 seconds. All LEDs will blink red times with 3 chimes. The speed control will make a pulsing chime as it looks for a neutral signal–you do not need to do anything yet."

my fx-pro has been remaining at that pulsing chime (LED6) for more than 10 minutes and it doesn't seem to get to point 4 that says:

"When NEUTRAL position is found and recorded, LED4 will flash and a confirmation chime will sound"

what happen? how long do i have to wait for the pulsing chime at point 3 before it gets to point 4?

my radio setting was set as per intructions and connection was done according to the diagrams. battery is fully charged.

please help!

If you're FX isn't finding nuetral currently, try reversing your throttle on your radio from it's current setting.

Some radios need to be in reverse like the Futabas and Nomadios.

It shoud find nuetral within the 5 seconds. If not your radio might have had it's nuetral wander a bit out of place.

Usually reversing the throttle setting cures it.

My thoughts are the same. Reverse throttle. Ensure trims are zero (all of them). Ensure speedy is connected to receiver.

If you are using a Futaba radio, you definitely need to reverse the throttle function.

If the far right (LED6) was flashing, it was looking for the full throttle signal, not neutral. I think it was waiting on you to pull the trigger
