Bail-out disabled itself after last flight.
Booting up my 600 nitro I get 15 pitch pumps instead of just three as usual. Bail-out switch has no effect. It was working, honest. Anyone know where I should start looking. Regards, Jim

Getting 15 pitch-pumps on power up indicates the controller thinks the accelerometers have failed the POST (power on self test).
The controller is still flyable but the Rescue (not Bail-out) and Auto Level functions are offline.
You should look at the Event Log to see if the controller is detecting a bad accelerometer.

If the accelerometers are the problem, you can try gently tapping on the side of the case (firm but not hard) and then powering it up

Also, if the controller is tilted on its side when you powered it up, that will cause the POST to think the accelerometers are screwed up.
The orientation of the controller is set in software.
During the POST, the controller compares its current physical orientation with the orientation set in the software.
If the physical and the software setting is too far apart during POST (like the heli is laying on its side), the unit thinks the accelerometers are boned.

I've heard some say that a factory reset followed by a complete re-setup has worked too - but I think that is more VooDoo than fact. But, you could try that too.

Lastly, if it is still in warranty, call the distributor.

It is still in warranty and your other suggestions for possible pre boot conditions were all negative in this case. Banging the unit on top with my knuckle three times fixed it as you suggested. Does not give me a warm fuzzy feeling about this. Will try this 20 times over the next few days and if it fails again I think it should go back.
