    Binding issue

    Post by TexinMaine on Thu Nov 08, 2012 12:18 pm

    I have an Axial rock crawler that came with a Spektrum DX3.0 which according to the manual can store 4 models, I assume this means 4 different cars. I am working on an old goldpan and figured I would just get another Rx and use the DX3 for that as well. I bought an OrangeRx GR300 which is supposed to be just like the Spektrum SR300. I followed the binding instructions in the Spektrum manual and this is what happens. I attach ESC, motor and battery to the Rx, I install the bind plug and turn the ESC on and a rapid blinking light appears on the Rx, I then hold the bind button on the Tx and turn the power on, as soon as the green light starts to blink I let go of the bind button and the light turns to a solid green in a matter of seconds, while this is happening the light will on the Rx will either go out or turn solid for a fraction of a second and then begin the rapid blinking again. I remove the bind plug and try to throttle the motor and nothing happens. I am sure the ESC and motor work because after a few tries I took the SR300 out of the Axial and hooked it up and everything worked fine. I have tried holding the bind button longer, pulling the bind plug out as soon as the light stops blinking but it still returns to the rapid blinking and no function. Sorry this is a bit long winded but I hope some one can shed some light on the issue. Thanks.

    Thats because those Chinese knock off receivers have a very high failure rate,and in most cases won't even bind .AS you have found out.These knock off RX do not save you money in the long run.Even the plane RX are junk.Just buy a Spektrum RX and save your self the head ache.Even it did work most have no range and on the plane RX ,some of the radio functions won't work.
    HobbyKing is not the bargain everyone thinks it is ,special there electronics !!!
