Michael, Si is right for the old FS-GR3E Version. These can handle 4V up to 6V.
Actual Version is FS-GR3F, These can handle up to 8,4V. 

Did you check the order of wire colors on your power supply plug on your receiver?

Si,
 With a maximum supply Voltage of 6V one is forced to use an ESC with BEC or to use a Voltage regulator or step down converter if a 2cell Lipo, LiFePo etc. is used.Not very comfortable.

Hi Juergen



There is ABSOLUTELY NO NEED AT ALL to use any complex or expensive 'Voltage-regulators' or 'step-down converters' etc.



All the E.S.C.s that have been illustrated repeatedly throughout this Thread & the one Michael is using ...

... are both AFFORDABLE & SIMPLE, with no extra 'Voltage-regulators' or 'step-down converters' being required.



ANY TYPE OF 'FlySky' RECEIVER CAN BE USED WITH THESE E.S.C.s, WITHOUT ANY POWER SUPPLY PROBLEMS.



The E.S.C. 'Electronic Speed Controllers' ALL HAVE 'built-in' B.E.C. 'Battery Elimination Circuits' ...

... to supply the required 5 Volts D.C. power-supply, for the 'FlySky' Receivers shown in this Thread.



I have no idea what you mean by ... "one is forced to use" ? ... WE WANT TO USE AN E.S.C. with a B.E.C. ! ! !

I also do not have any idea whatsoever, quite what you are trying to say by ... "Not very comfortable" ...

... unless of course, you are referring to all these extra & unnecessary circuits you mention ?





The setup above ^^ that is being used, is not only affordable; it is wonderfully simple & straightforward to implement as well ...

... needing nothing extra or complex to power the Receiver, other than the E.S.C. itself !



Si.



THE 'FlySky' RECEIVER MODELS ILLUSTRATED IN THIS THREAD, ARE DESIGNED FOR 5 VOLT USE ONLY ! ! !





! ! !  WARNING  ! ! !





UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD A 7.4 VOLT BATTERY EVER BE CONNECTED DIRECTLY TO THESE RECEIVERS ! ! !

THE VOLTAGE FROM A 2-CELL BATTERY OF THIS TYPE IS TOO HIGH FOR A DEVICE INTENDED TO USE ONLY 5 VOLTS ! ! !

PLUGGING A 7.4 VOLT BATTERY DIRECTLY INTO THESE RECEIVERS OR BY ADAPTER CABLE WILL DESTROY THE UNIT ! ! !

Hope you can see how I hooked everything up.

Here's a close-up photo of the Receiver.


The Bind-Plug is in  'BIND/CH3'

The Receiver-Connector is in  'CH2'

Hi Michael :wave:



Erm ... ??? ?


Have you RE-WIRED the 3-way cable-socket coming from the E.S.C. since you last Posted about it ?


The sequence of wire-colours was discussed at GREAT LENGTH earlier in the Thread.


It appears from your photo ^^ above, that you have the wires in the CORRECT sequence now ...

... 'White-Red-Black' ... & therefore there is now NO Reversed-Polarity in the above ^^ photo.


What's the story on this wiring ? ... ???

... You reported previously, that it was in the WRONG sequence of 'White-Black-Red'.


Have you re-wired that connector since your initial testing ? 



:us:



Si.

Si,

Maybe I posted the color sequence wrong before.
But right now I'm using the new ESC I just received to be on the safe side.

A simple question?
The receiver I have seems to be a little different than the ones you've been posting.
They both say Model: FS-GR3E.
But yours have a number 0678 at the bottom, where mine does not.
Would that make any difference?

Hi Michael :wave:



NO ... That would NOT make any difference.

They are ALL the regular 5 Volt powered 'FlySky' standard 3-Chanel Receivers.

The IMPORTANT labeling, is that which is identifying the connection-pins.

The other figure you mention, is probably just a 'Batch-Number' perhaps.

Erm ...  ???  ?


Well I never !  :shocked:

What's all this MAYBE ? ?  :f:

You either DID ... or you DIDN'T  ? :us:

You're telling me you DON'T KNOW ?  :dope:



Is anyone Posting on this Thread ACTUALLY READING IT ?  :time:



There is very little point, in attempting to do technical fault-finding help ...

... if the people THINKING they are doing it, aren't even paying attention & READING THE THREAD ...

... & don't even seem to know, if they HAVE, or HAVE NOT, Posted the simple relevant and CORRECT information needed !  :Crazy:



:doh:   :doh:   :doh:   :doh:   :doh:



Si.



:sad:

I daresay 90% of the postings in forums are due to people not having read what was written before.

Update:

I visited the local hobby shop that sells R.C. stuff and took along the 'FlySky' Transmitter, 2 Receivers, and the 2 E.S.C.s.
Explained to the guy that no matter what I did, I couldn't get it to bind.
After about 20 minutes, with plugging and unplugging components, and gathering a few on-lookers,
it was determined that the Transmitter was at fault.
It binded (bound?) to the first Receiver fine, and still works,
but the Transmitter just simply refuses to bind to any other Receiver.

Maybe it was just a fluke, or maybe Bill's Law kicking in.
(Bill's Law specifically states that it covers ANYTHING that Murphy may have forgot, omitted, or plain didn't know in the first place.
Therefore if it can happen it WILL happen to ME).

I did pick up a replacement Transmitter and Receiver so that I can move ahead with my project,
until I can get my hands on another 'FlySky' Transmitter.

Hi Michael :wave:



That's handy I guess, having a store near by.

It sounds like a potentially very oDd problem indeed !



So just to be clear ... L:

Your 1st Transmitter still works OK with your Receiver No.1 :)

Your 1st Transmitter still DOESN'T work with Receiver No.2 :f:


Now the question, just so I understand clearly. ???

Your 1st Transmitter has been tested with a THIRD RECEIVER and will NOT bind to it ? :us:



:!:



Si.

Si,

You got it.

Transmitter works with the first Receiver (#1) I got just fine.
Transmitter will not bind to Receiver #2 or Receiver #3.

Tried both E.S.C.s with #2 & #3 Receivers and still won't bind.

All done by the guy behind the counter (the expert?),
along with a few on-lookers and their comments (you know how everyone has an opinion).

When I explained what I was doing with the Tx/Rx, the people at the hobby shop showed some interest.
