This is what Barracuda replied to me.

If you have a dead servo you can cut the wire off, strip the two outside wires (black and white on futaba) and twist them together.

Works great

There is a room to store one binding plug in the battery compartment. It will be there (in the tx) whenever you need it.

I used to keep mine in the battery compartment of my DX7. One day I was setting up a new heli and was binding a lot. I took the bind plug out, put it in place, picked up the transmitter and the battery fell out while the Tx was still powered on. The abrupt interruption in power scrambled the CPU and the only fix was to send it to Horizon. To their credit they fixed it at no charge even though it was totally my fault. Still, I lost all my settings, again my fault for not having them recorded. I learned several lessons in a few milliseconds.

Bind plug
If you are going to keep a bind plug in battery compartment, make sure the holes are covered with tape or someday that bind plug will travel from the battery compartment to the pots area, well the rest is self explanatory!

I slide the battery toward left to leave small crevis on right. If you slide the binding plug there, it will not move around at all. As mentioned, putting it on left side with big gaping hole is asking for it.

Those things are kind of a pain. I wish there was just a button on the receivers like the synthesized JR receivers used to have. You just held in a button for a couple seconds and it was "bound" together. No extra plug or nothing. It was very simple.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

thanks guys....a button would be a better idea..the whole bind plug is ill thought out...that and the fact that you have to pull the battery connection only to put it into an empty slot...which with a seven channel receiver...is not gonna happen.

You can use a Y connector to any channel and just run the Female outside and leave it there, I did this on my 500 where the RX is difficult to get to the connectors.

If the bind plug irritates you that much you could add a mini switch to act as a bind plug and attach it to the heli, not advisable, one more thing to go wrong / accidentally switched on etc. But if it bothers you that much...

Not if you want it to work.

You MUST connect the bind plug to the Bind port of the Rx (which is also the Batt port).

Actually you can.

If using the build in BEC in ESC (To RX Thro Ch)
Straight 3" servo extension to RX Batt Channel. Female routed outside for easy binding.

Separate BEC to RX Batt Ch. ESC to RX Thro Ch
Y connector.
Male to RX Batt Ch
Female 1 - Lipo Via BEC
Female 2 to outside for bind plug

Yes it seems wrong, I have 2 heli's setup like this and no issues.
