Hi guys, my 14SG is having some issues. It will not bind with any of my Rx's, even ones that were previously bound. I changed nothing in the TX since my last flight, but there seems to be no signal. I tried several different Rx's, tried adding "new model" so as to update the Rx ID as I use Fastesst Rx's, but no luck. It's like it's just not transmitting.
Anyone have some insight into this problem?
Fwiw, both the red and blue LED's are on when powered up. I studied the manual last night for over 2 hours, but I'm left scratching my head.
Need your help.

What is the light on the receiver doing when it and transmitter are powered.

If nothing got changed in the radio and multiple rx's suddenly aren't working.

Then I would suspect the radio has the malfunction which can happen at any time with electronics
I have had servo's die while sitting on the shelf, worked fine yesterday (align servo)

On spektrum you can hear it transmit. I don't know if futaba does the same.

spending time, paying attention

If the transmitter is is FASSTest mode and you're seeing a red light on the receiver, then it would appear the transmitter needs to go in for service. The receiver would be flashing green if the transmitter were outputting indicating that the receiver was seeing a FASST signal but not yet bound to it. The fact that all of the receivers you have suddenly no longer respond indicts the transmitter.

I think I know what is going on. Futabas link - they don't bind. Binding is something brand X does.

Problem solved! You're welcome America.

Sorry. Just having some fun.

Cheers,

Bill

That's what I was afraid of, but was also my first assumption. I'm thinking I may just pick up an 18SZ and call it a day.
Appreciate your time Ben, thanks.
