Unhappy 3GX Problem

Anyone out there had any problems with the new 3GX unit. Mine wont go into 'initial set up routine', my heli justs sits there with servo arms at strange angles. Built the heli up (using a spare rx to centre servos) plugged it all in, bound, if I hold the button down for too long the gov mode comes on & if I turn off TX warning lights flash. It will just not go into setup mode!
Our local heli guru took it home & played with it for some time using his radio gear with the same result.
I've sent the unit back to Align UK & I'm sure they'll sort it out-BUT I was just wondering wether this is a one off rogue unit or a common fault.

mine worked first time. flew real good to on my 600 until the castle ESC burned it up.. I did have boot up issues with it vs spektrum RX. but it worked great if you let the RX boot up first. I've converted to futaba sbus and now the 3GX does not boot until the RX has booted up.

you will eventually get a good one.
