Hi,

Think I have a duff G3 rx, can't get it to bind/connect with my 14mz. I have another rx which is working fine and I can changed the frequency.

I've tried this new one in different rooms of the house, outside, aerial up and down, DSC cable connected the lot it just won't work It's a new rx but it's been sitting around a while indoors. any tips ?

Simon.

Do you have your radio set to G3 RX?

So you aren't getting any response from the controls after you try to bind it?

I remember when I was using G3 I didn't notice the servo twitch when I bound so I didn't think it worked. I had to call Futaba tech support and they said that as long as the controls are working it should be ok. I did a range check at the field and flew it for the whole summer with no problems. This was in a 30% airplane FWIW.

Hi,

Under the Frequency menu I have,

Ch77
35mhz
Europe (UK)
PCM-G3
0007193 rx number
No Use

I've got a servo pluged into ch1 but I am getting no response from the. I've put the servo in just to see if it would move once it binds.

Just tried changing the frequency on my heli with the other G3 rx in which is working and that worked fine, so just tried binding with the other G3 rx next to the other heli and still no response ? must be a duff rx.

Simon,

Which receiver are you trying to connect to - older 5014 or newer 5114 ?

If it's the 5114, you will also need to select mode A or B, as this does not apply to the earlier 5014 type.

I also found it easier if you dangle the receiver aeriel over the transmitter aeriel when doing the bind.

Lastly, beware of flouresent lights - they can affect the binding also.

Try the DSC cord. It should work even without pairing the rx. If not, the rx is dead.

I had one G3 give up on me on the bench with similar symptoms like your own... no binding, not working, nothing... it was replaced by robbe gmbh under warranty.
