Hi Guys :wave:



Thanks for the info. on the dimensions. :thumb:



I remember the 'magic number trick' now Bob, as I read that before, which you'd Posted previously ...

... THIS time, I'll remember it, for a good indication of battery size. :)

Can't seem to get the new Receiver I just got, to bind with the Transmitter.

I get a steady red flashing LED on the Receiver,
and when I try to bind the Transmitter (holding down the bind-button, then turning on the Tx.)
the green LED flashes quickly.

Do I have a bad Receiver ? 

The Rx. in my other loco works fine.

On a Deltang Rx. the green LED flashes slowly for 30 seconds than rapidly.
Only then do you press the bind button and switch on the Tx.

Hi Michael :wave:



Did you have the 'Bind-Plug' connected to Channel-3 on the Receiver ? ???





You must have done that on your 1st Receiver for it to be working OK.

I doubt very much that the Receiver is broken, they are pretty bomb-proof, if handled properly.

Yep.

Bind plug where it says bind. 

E.S.C. plugged into top port.

Just tried the Tx. on my other loco and it works fine.

Trying it with the new Rx. and just no luck.

Probably doing something dumb, but can't figure out what.

Hi Michael :wave:



The E.S.C. Electronic Speed Controller, should NOT be  "plugged into top port".

It needs to be connected to Channel-2 on the 'FlySky' Receiver.

Observing the correct plug-polarity as well.





The 3-pin "top port", which is marked  VCC  (S + -)  is for connecting a power-supply ...

... when using an E.S.C. Electronic Speed Controller, WITHOUT a built-in B.E.C. Battery Eliminator Circuit ...

... or when NOT using an E.S.C. at all, such as in a motorless Glider or Sailboat.

Still no can bind.

Bind plug in 'bind'.  ESC plugged in channel 2 (white, black, red - left to right).

Both red lights on ESC flash.  Turn on Tx. while holding down 'bind' button and green LED flashes rapidly.

@ Michael

Try holding the bind button down, turning on the transmitter, and then powering up the receiver.
I have a similar Rx. which sometimes doesn't cooperate with the Tx. I'm using.

Good Luck!

Wonder if maybe the ESC is having problems.

I did shorten the wires to save room.

Dan,

Gave it a try.  No luck.

Green LED flashes rapidly on Tx. and red LED on ESC flashes.  No binding.

It was worth a try.  Thanks.
