    Default DX7 -" Backup Error", ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH

    Flew my 500 for a bit early evening in back garden.

    Went to put away later and saw I had left DX7 on. Switched off and on - message "BACKUP ERROR" that's it nothing else. Thought may be a flat battery wasn't but charged for an hour anyway. No good.

    Checked forums Helifreak have a fix but it doesn't work so it'll have to go off to Horizon I suppose.

    Questions:
    When they fix it will I have lost my settings (for about 7 models)
    How long do you think they will have it? I'm already suffering withdrawal symptoms.

    That DX8 may be here sooner than originally planned. What's the best price on these and where from?

    Thanks

    I had the same issue.

    As always with Horizon, and I hope its the same this time, you'll have it back in days. I think I posted mine off Wednesday and had it back Friday ready for the weekend (this was a few months back)
    Its wise to backup all your settings as you will lose all of them.

    I think theres a fix but its totally hit and miss as to wheather itl work, in my case it didnt, so did the wise thing and send it off.
    Also it didnt cost me a penny.

    Mmm just checked e-bay and they can be had for 200 plus postage - although some outlets are trying for nearly 280 for radio only.

    I don't know. Its only a month since I bought the 700, the costs of this hobby eh?

    Anyway will seek out Horizon address, parcel up and get it in the post in morning.

    I hope the DX8 gets trustworthy sooner than later.
    It'd be the ideal solution to my plank training buddy box compatibility requirements.
    Mode 4 prevails at the club with the plank flyers and I'm on a DX7 Mode 2.
    There's only a couple of heli flyers at the club and we're Mode 2 so no probs with the helis.

    For a DX8, setting Mode 4 for the Master Tx would be the work of seconds.
    It's either wait for the DX8 to get sorted or buy a couple of Turnigy 9X and slap Fr-Sky modules in them.

    Thanks Tom for the offer but Ivan's already jumped in with an offer to borrow his spare DX7. If mines not back for weekend I'll do that, put some settings in for the 600 and just fly that.

    Mine will go off today and I can but hope that the legendary Horizon service kicks in.

    I've set up and used a DX8 and have to say they are very appealing! I think the question mark over their reliability (which has probably been blown up out of all proportion) will be enough to make me resist for now!

    Thanks again everyone. I will post when repaired and report on the service response.
