Hi All- I'm getting an error message on startup that says "Backup Error!! Data is initialized. Please turn off the power switch." When turned off the red light under the LD knob is blinking. I couldn't find anything in the manual. Any ideas?

Yeah, did that. No joy. I had started to charge the NiMh batt through the tx jack, but bumped up the rate. I guess it can't handle a 3amp charge rate. It cut out, than I tried again at a 2amp rate and it finished the charge. After that the error message came. I hope it didn't fry anything too bad.

Rob,

If you are getting a Backup Error you will need to send your transmitter in for service fix it for you.

If you are in North America contact Hobby Services.

If you charge to quick you also take a chance of the battery heating up and distorting the plastic around it.

Yeah, I found a note in the manual that tells you to remove the battery if you want to quick charge it.(pg 33) I guess the tx's charging circuit can't handle much. Thanks for the replies, I've sent it in for repair.
