Trex 500 converting to flybarless

Well I finally started putting the trex 500 back together after a teardown looking at everything. SO far I replaced both main shaft bearings, bought a tarot FBL head for it. Went to boot up the 3GX and it is dead! no lights, no anything although the receiver lights up and binds to the tx. I have a couple more 3gx units coming as I am going to use all 3gx on my birds. the rx2702v works very well on my 450 but want all to be the same and now I have plenty of 2801 receivers now so dont need the rx2702v walkera unit. Anone have any idea if the 3gx has these problems or maybe doing something wrong?
Next thing I need to do is program my radio for the trex 500 as far as servo positioning and such.

using the walkera 2801 pro. Getting the radio programmed I come to find that I am going to need different linkage sizes so that at mid servo and 50%onthe radio in the pitch curve my blades wont be at zero degrees in pitch.

You keep saying & typing 8201pro tx & 8201change rx. It's not typo error & u better check what you have. There is no such walkera 8201 pro tx & 8201rx.
