I noticed last night when I was tweaking my Rap 50, when I would move the wires that connect the external reciever to the main on my AR7000 the light would temporarily blink on the external.

Is this normal?

I made sure all connections were snug, no bad leads, nothing touching anything conductive. The light only blinked when I would touch/move the wires between recievers.

Do you have another cable to connect the satellite receiver? May be a broken or intermittent connection. I would trace it down before flying.

I have another AR7000 arriving shortly. I'm going to swap cables and see if it continues. I'm definately not taking any chances with this.

Does spektrum sell just the cable separately?

YES, in various lengths even. Any LHS that carries JR/Spektrum should have at least a couple of different sizes.

I've seen more than a few of those with bad crimps on the pins.
