Hi all,

Well I would like to say my update went without a hitch but I can't. I had one of the first v1 units and I must say it was working really well. No initialization issues at all. I had several flights on it. I got the new v2.1 update today. The install went smooth. I checked everything out after the update and it all looked good. I shut it off and powered it back up and now the 3G is very intermittent to initialize. I get tail and cyclic servos but no collective. Light just flashes from red to green.

I am using an AR7100r receiver and a JR X9303 transmitter. The only thing I changed was installing the v2.1 software. If I let it sit off for 10 mins or so and turn it back on it might initialize but most time not. I think I got it to initialize a few times in several hours.

I did the rebind and re-setup of the 3G, both did not help. I also tried loading the v2.1 software again with no luck.

Any information would be great.

thanks
allen

My V1 was just the opposite. It would not login properly with a JR921 Receiver and X9303 Transmitter. I've been out of business waiting on the 3G update. I'll update it tomorrow and hopefully all of my login problems will be gone..

I'd check the connectors which had to be removed to do the update. I heard about pins slipping out of position and loose fit.

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Same as nqna

Mine had initialization issues related to the 3G unit initializing faster than the ar7100. After the upgrade, I see that the 3G unit waits until the rx is initialized and the problem is solved. Cant wait to fly it tomorrow!

Update on my situation.. The 3G update did not help.. Turns out my remote receiver has gone bad.. Tried a different remote and now all is well.. Hopefully I will not have any further issues once I get a replacement remote receiver..

Hi Guys,

I'm still having lots of problems with the 3G initialing with my AR7100r. Sometimes it works but most of the time it wont. No real pattern I have been able to figure out. I spent a perfect day at the field today and got 2 flights in 2.5 hours. I spent 40 mins switching it on and off in many different combos before it would initialize.

When it works it seems to work well. No tail kicks or anything scary. It just wont initialize most of the time. I am thinking that if I can't get this sorted I will have to move on to a different FBL system.

Any input would be helpful at this point.

thanks
allen

You could simply have a faulty unit. Can you not return it for exchange under warranty?

It's been suggested here but I'd go back and thoroughly check the pins on the unit/sensor and the harness connectors. You could also try one of the other leads to couple the sensor and unit. There's been a lot of issues with the connection points.

Bad boot up

Are you using the latest software dated 2010/06/28?

http://www.align.com.tw/alignhtml/3.../3g_update.html

If not I would uninstall the computer software your using and reinstall the latest version. Then you can try the update again.

If you are using the latest software I would simply try to install the 2.0v update and see if that will change anything.

Good luck...
Bob

Thanks for all of the info guys. I have tried all of the suggestions so far and still no go. I went to the field today and got one flight in. I could not get it to initialize again before I ran out of time.

If you can think of anything else for me to try I would really appreciate it.
