    Don't panic. You need to bind the new transmitter to the receiver, it's expecting to talk to your old one, not this imposter! The procedure is in the manual. I'll find the page in a minute...

    EDIT: Page 11 to 12

    Have another read of the whole thing while you're there - we're on version 1.12 now. Who knows what good stuff you're missing out on? ;)

    No you just need to push it, I used the supplied screwdriver. It is a small light on the underside of the copter. It will be blinking then you push it and it should bind with your transmitter, make sure transmitter is on.

    From the manual:

    It's all there in black and white! :)

    Note point three. Don't turn on the transmitter until you've got the link button blinking yellow.
