Default Blade CP doesn't initialize :(

I just got a brand new blade CP. I went through the control tests, and everything APPEARS to be working okay (I think) but the blade cp doesn't initilaize, it just blinks red twice and then goes solid red. What am I doing wrong? This is the first helicopter I've ever owned, btw.

Do you have the transmitter on? How did you do control tests if the Rx won't initialize?

1. Turn on the Tx with the antenna fully extended. Make sure the throttle and throttle trim are all the way down. Also make sure your idle-up switch is off (pushed to the back).

2. Make sure the crystals in the Tx and the Rx are fully seated.

The throttle stick wasn't all the way down, just the throttle trim. Whoops

Thanks dooder

I'm still not sure what all the controls even do yet. I want to play with a trainer program too, I have no idea though which ones are good or what I need.
