Do I need to bind my receiver to my transmitter?
I just powered the Rx and Tx and it all worked fine. But the manual states
The AR7000 receiver must be bound to the transmitter before it will operate. Binding is the process of teaching
the receiver the specific code of the transmitter so it will connect to that specific transmitter. Once bound, the
receiver will only connect to the transmitter when the previously bound model memory is selected.
So I wonder, do I still need to bind the receiver to the transmitter?

if it works then it has already been binded.. but binding it again doesn't hurt anything and might give you a piece of mind..

Raptor 50 Titan with DX7, GY401, and TT Redline 53 is Awsome!

OK thanks.
Do I need to be prepared to do a re-binding at some time? For instance, may the receiver get unbound at some point? For instance due to pressing the wrong button on my Tx or having some wrong signal picked up by my Rx?

The typical way a receiver gets "unbound" is by accidentally having the bind button on the back of the transmitter pushed when the transmitter is turned on. There shouldn't be any other way that you will need to do the bind. The fail safes are set when you do the bind, so it might be good to rebind after all your initial setup is done. A typical problem is that many HH gyros have to be in HH mode when they are powered on. If your failsafe for the gyro gain channel is not on the HH gain value, then the gyro might not initialize correctly, depending on the connect time (which is variable).

If you buy a second Rx, you must do the bind process. The one that came with your Tx was bound at the factory. That cannot be true for the next Rx that you buy.

Just to clarify, You have to be holding the bind button pressed when turning on the transmitter to possibly mess up the current bind. After the transmitter is on the "bind" button is what you use for a range check, then it will not affect bind.
I have never lost bind on my DX7 AR7000. There were times I thought I did but it turned out to be low battery or bad wiring (switch failure).

Thanks ph7, just wanted re-enforce what you already stated.

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

Losing bind is not a problem as others have posted. When you have finished setting up your heli or plane you should re-bind with the throttle in the fail-safe postion you desire, normally closed.

If it came out of the box from the factory its pre-bound to your transmitter on model memory #1

You should rebind when you are done setting up with the gyro switch in heading hold and the throttle at idle, this will set your fail safes.

If you press the bind button on the transmitter you will reduce the power to perform a range check.

If you want to bind your receiver, or a new reciever, then you have to insert the bind plug in to the Spectrum switch harness, or the battery connection on the reciever, AND turn on the transmitter WHILE HOLDING down the bind button and wait for the lights to stop flashing.

Thanks! I will have to rethink this in order to determine whether I need to redo my current wiring which has no signal wire on the power line. Sounds like I may be able to do a simple hack on the wiring for those few times that I need to connect that signal wire.

A lesson I learned recently,

You should rebind the system after setting up your helicopter as this is how the FAILSAFE is programmed.
