Brand new CP Pro 3-in-1 will not arm!

Hi guys. First time poster here. I just bought a new BCPP today. The heli will not arm. The LED on the 3-in-1 will only blink, and then remain red. I followed the instructions in the manual;

1. Turn Idle Up toward transmitter (facing me)
2. Turn transmitter on
3. Throttle stick/trim bosth in lowest position
4. Plug battery into 3-in-1

All I get is a blinking red to solid red light. I spent all this money and I cant play with my new toy.... Aaaarrrggghhhh! I have tried to initialize the heli numerous times (yes, I unplug the battery first, then turn off the tx). Am I doing something wrong? Is this a glitch? I'd appreciate any help, and even other noob tips for my first flight. Thanks.

No the idle up is away from you. Down to the ground while its arming.

You only use idle up when you want to fly 3D. (i woldnt recomend using this switch for a while)

throttle down and throttle trim down.

What other difficulties are you having? You mean something other than learning to fly a helicopter??!
