› Scorpion 60amp ESC in a Furion 450 problem

I have a NIB Scorpion that I put in my Furion 450. It seemed to work fine then after about 20 flights one of the capacitors came off. I sent it in for repair, they did and then once installed in the heli I notice that the cycic controlls seem very mushy (this could be from not flying it for 2 months and only flying a Spectra G) but then I also noticed that the 401 Gyro would not power up with a solid red light. This made the tail rotor change at random and freely.
I thought it might be the power up sequence so I connected a 4 cell 4.8V battery to the rx and then connected the Lipo and still flashing red light. Quite by accident I uplugged then quickly reconnected the Lipo and the gyro initialize with a steady red light. I was able to hover it but I also had the flashing orange lights indicating a loss of connnection to the TX (I'm sure this was from the disconnect).

I redid the setup on the ESC since I did not know if it had been reset. I did not see any option to set soft response for the cyclic and nothing else seems to have changed.
Any ideas?

FYI
I was cleaning up the office and I ran accross a RC Heli mag from April 09 and in it on page 26 the FAQ talks about why the 401 does not initialize in HH.

It says that prior to TX and RX connecting the the RX outputs failsafe settings to all channels (except the throttle). To get the gyro in HH and initialized and then to rebind the TX and RX and this will set failsafe so that the Gyro will initialize in HH.

It sounds good. I just have to figure out how to bind the system when it is already powered up. I thougt you had to insert the bind plug then power up the system.
