I know this seems like an idiotic question.
This is why I am asking.
I have a Trex 450 pro, and I am using the AR6250 receiver.
If I turn on my transmitter and then plug in the battery I get the slow blinking light (brownout)on my receiver.
If I plug in the battery, then turn on the transmitter, I get the solid light on the receiver.
I learned along time ago to always turn on the transmitter first, has that rule changed or is there a problem with the receiver. I flew a couple really mellow flights (Plugging in battery first , turning on transmitter second)without any problems.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should ALWAYS turn on the TX first

If you're having issues with that, then I would send the RX in to Horizon for a check up

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
Nope.
It's ***ked!!!

HUGE +1 especially with an electric. They can and will spool up and cause great harm to you and the heli.

Try placing the Tx farther away from the heli and angling it so the antennae is facing away from the heli. Let us know if that helps. If it doesnt, send in the Rx for a check up.

With the JR/Spectrum DSM2 radios I always wait a few second after turning on the TX before turning on the RX. Also make sure that the TX antenna is at least a couple feet from the RX when you turn on the RX.

If you fumble with the connectors and make and break contact it will take that as a brownout too and flash the lights.

same as jschenck
Always transmitter first, then receiver.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
