I'm using a 7.4 Volt LiPo battery.

" Michael described that the LED's of the receiver were flashing, how could he have reversed polarity then ? ? ? "



Hi Juergen



If you READ THE THREAD ...

... what HE DOES describe, is LEDs flashing on the TRANSMITTER & E.S.C. ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROLLER ...

... AFTER he has re-plugged the 3-way cable from the E.S.C. onto the CORRECT Channel-2 pins ...

... the cable however, is STILL wired up INCORRECTLY, according to what he has described, as REVERSED-POLARITY ! ! !



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

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



If you READ THE THREAD Juergen, Michael has already said he is using a 7.4 Volt LiPo battery.



Si.

Si, please ...

Michael M wrote: 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.


Michael, 

did you already try to bind with the receiver powered up directly from your battery, without connecting the ESC?

Hi again Juergen.



Try READING CAREFULLY what I have Posted.



What you are quoting ^^ above, is what Michael said ...

... BEFORE ! ! ! ... THE 3-WAY CABLE FROM THE E.S.C. WAS PLUGGED INTO THE CORRECT CHANNEL ! ! !



After this cable was plugged into the CORRECT channel, he said :-


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

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


His 3-way cable-socket though, even after connecting to the CORRECT channel, was STILL REVERSE-POLARITY WIRED ! ! !



Juergen, If you look back & READ THE THREAD ...

... Michael has already installed this 'FlySky' gear, with TOTAL SUCCESS previously.



His battery DOES NOT have a connector that is compatible with the E.S.C.s 0.1" pitch pins.

He is also WELL AWARE from his previous install, that you DO NOT plug that battery DIRECTLY into the Receiver.



Si.






Juergen, if you look back & READ THE THREAD carefully, this schematic has been Posted many many times throughout the text.

Juergen,

The battery plugs into the ESC.

Don't see any way of trying to connect the battery directly to the Rx.

The battery only has two leads; red and black.

I would build an adapter cable, Michael.But I think you haven't yet a box of RC odds and sods to have parts for this?

But I think you may already have powered your Rx correctly.  Did you get a red flashing light on the Receiver in each of your tests?  By the way, during binding process your ESC only serves as power supply, so it doesn't matter if it is plugged in ch1 or ch2, or VCC. So binding should have worked on your first trial as well.

But you also posted
Michael M wrote: 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.



It should be white, red, black. So far Si is right, if this is your orientation of colors at the receiver, holding it the way that you can read the labeling. Please check this once more.
Or better, just make a photo of your binding setup with one of the receivers you have.

Juergen

! ! !  WARNING  ! ! !





UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD A 7.4 VOLT BATTERY EVER BE CONNECTED DIRECTLY TO THIS RECEIVER ! ! !

THE VOLTAGE FROM A BATTERY OF THIS TYPE IS WAY TOO HIGH FOR A DEVICE INTENDED FOR ONLY 5 VOLTS ! ! !

PLUGGING THIS 2-CELL BATTERY TYPE INTO THE RECEIVER DIRECTLY OR BY ADAPTER CABLE WILL DESTROY IT ! ! !






:f:



Si.

Hi Juergen.



If you READ THE THREAD ...

... Michael has already stated what he has done, concerning the connecting of the Bind-Plug ! ! !


" Bind plug where it says bind. 

E.S.C. plugged into top port."


Quite clearly, he DOES NOT have the same model of Receiver, which is referred to in the Link ^^ that you Posted.



Si.

Si,

Don't worry,
I did not plug the 7.4 Volt battery directly into the Receiver.


Juergen,

Thanks for the link.
I tried moving the binding-plug around to other ports, but didn't get a red LED light on the Receiver.
To get a red flashing LED light, the binding-plug has to be in the bind-port.

It was worth a try.


I've got a new Receiver on the way.
Should be here in a few days.

It's frustrating dealing with this.
But as Si. has pointed out before,
the parts are not expensive,
so it's no big loss.
