I did so and got a quick blinking red light on the brick. As soon as I lowered the throttle stick to zero, the brick initiated like normal. The heli never twitched or nothing. A friend of mine has a couple Walkera models (God help and his TX did the same thing one day. He hadn't realized the throttle was up about half way. Once he lowered the throttle stick to zero...Bingo!

BTW, thanks for the info on the charge cables.

Dang Guys, I'm sure you heard about the airshow crash in Reno. My heart sank when I saw the news. May they all RIP
