When I plug my CC voltage regulator into the aux 2 function on the AR 7000 rx everything is fine. When I switch from aux 2 to the battery port the receiver won't initialize (bind). What's the deal with that? I want to free up that aux channel and power the rx via the battery port. Doesn't make any sense to me. Thanks in advance.

Hey skypup, I have the same setup. When I plug my battery in the receiver lights flash. But everything works fine. I just dont like that the lights dont go solid, it scares me. I dont want to lose my bird over something like that. I hate that your having problems, but at least I am not alone. I am sure someone has an answer for us.

Found problem

I found the problem. I had the throttle lead in the battery slot and the esc "power out" lead in the throttle slot. See if you did the same.

I was putting the rx back onto my bird and since the leads were all bundled I couldn't follow them to see where they were routed. I had labeled the other leads but not these.

KS if you power down the reciever, and swap batteries or whatever, and don't turn off the transmitter, the lights will flash, its telling you that you had a power failure. If you disconnect the battery and want solid lights turn off the transmitter and turn it back on.

Old firmware.

Turn on the Tx, turn on the RX and wait till it links.

Unplug the reciever and plug it back in.

One of 3 things will happen.

1. Oldest firmware will take several seconds to reconnect, then solid lights.

2. First revision firmware will connect instantly with solid lights.

3. Latest revision will connect instantly and flash the lights.

I wouldn't fly anything less than 2

Too add to what Baracuda said I highly don't recommend flying with the blinky lights. I did this for 4 weeks on my raptor and then reseting up gryo just hovering off the ground it locked out and went in tail first. Never again, instead turn off rx/tx and start over until you get solid - if you don't get it rebind.

FWIW - I also ran power to aux 2 while I had bind in batt slot, swapped back and no issues. ar7000 newest firmware.

Also, if you haev an early CC BEC, plugging it into the batt port will put the Rx into bind mode.

Youc an send it to CC for update or remove the signal wire from the plug.

The blinking lights, and lockout, have nothing to do with each other.

I'm lost then... Since the blinking lights (could only verify satalite was blinking since I use a strong box) it did experience a loss of signal. I don't have the data port cable to confirm nor an understanding of how that works so when I say lockout I'm assuming.

I do know since rebinding and rebuilding it hasn't had an issue but not quite a gallon through it since the crash. Guess we'll just have to see - although the field I was it when it happeaned is no more - so for peace of mind just going to assume that was it

Hey barracuda, you were right. I turned my tx on then plugged my rx in and the lights went solid. Then I unplugged my rx and plugged it back in I have full control but the lights were blinking. Then I tried what you told me earlier. I turned my tx on then plugged my rx in and solid lights. Then I unplugged my rx turned off my tx then turned my tx back on then plugged my rx in. Solid lights on my rx. Thanks for the info really appreciate. I understand now what you meant about when you dont turn the tx off and on again the rx blinks because it relizes it had a power loss.
