Don't you have to press again after 'b' to save the channel map and continue?

Remember, there are two modes....and that these two modes are easily confused.

I believe this causes most of the issues with the setup....

I meant with the microbeast.

In the manual....it describes "Setup Menu" vs. "Parameter Menu".

It's easy to think you're in the one menu, when you're really in the other menu.

Now that's no good.....now I understand what you meant in your 1st post

It might need servicing....

Although, before you send it in, try this.

Only connect a battery to it.....no servos...and see if that blinking still occurs.

Using a fully charged RX battery.

Thinking a servo is drawing too much current and the input voltage to the beast is very low.

I don't think it's getting a valid signal from your receiver when you select sbus. Plug your rx in then start your setup. Choose sbus flashing red then short press to menu b. If it receives a valid signal then blue will show. Once blue shoes up then s long press to menu N. Make sure your receiver is bound to your transmitter before you start setup

I think that's your problem. Read above. Keep your rx plugged in as you do setup

And complete the setup until menu N before powering down

Do you have a copy of the MicroBeast instructions? They are very clear about the setup steps. I know that I had to have a microBeast Plus replaced one time when it would not reset correctly.

Follow instructions, then call Horizon for help.
