I recently purchased a nice RTF T-Rex 450 from ebay which had a DX7, however, it had no charger or binding pug...2 questions, 1, can i build a bindig plug and 2, is there anywhere to get these items. Im in army aviation and have access to avionics style connectors etc, i took an old futaba charing pin and made a charger adapter for radio itself, however need to know what to make if possible for a binding plug. And, by the way i emailed Spektrum and asked about purchasing these items seperate almost a week ago and still never got a reply...what gives......Thanks

Binding plug is just a short between pin 1 & 3, (negative and signal) so its easy to build.

As MrMel suggests, just take the end off of some unused servo and wire/solder pins 1 & 3 together = bind plug.

for the charger AFAIK you can use any modern JR charger. The best bet would be to get some charge chords for a field/quick charger, just make sure you charge at 1/2C or less so you don't cook the NiMH battery. This is what I do.

In case you didnt know there is a fuse inside so if it goes dead that is normally the cause, blown fuse. If you try to charge it to fast is will blow the fuse or if polarity is reversed.
