Default Whirlwind Quadcopter will not bind.

I just purchased this new in a sealed box. I installed new batteries in the transmitter. The display shows a full battery on it. I charged and tried both batteries for the quadcopter. No matter how or in what sequence I turn on the transmitter and attach the battery, the quadcopter will not bind to the radio. I followed the instructions exactly and also varied the procedures used on my other quadcopters, (I own around 35 quadcopters), I can not get it to bind. The LED on the board repeats the same sequence of blinking twice then off then blinks twice again. I'm open to suggestions before I request an exchange or refund. Thanks.

I used a UDI U816 transmitter and got it to work. It turns out the UDI and Redcat are identical.

Hey im from evansville! I used to live by the night township fire dept.( I think is what it was called)

Anyways... I had a problem like that with a car of mine. I put the power into the last channel for me it was ch.3 and the bind plug into the power slot and it worked.

I would like to add that Redcat Racing are the best. I filled out the warranty form and got a notice that the new transmitter has already been mailed. Thanks Redcat.
