Trying to link My 8FG to my RX. Am following the directions in the user guide but am not having any luck, The user manual is giving the R6008HS as the example but I have the R617FS RX. According to the manual I should have a solid green light on the RX after the link is complete but all I get is a solid red which according to the manual means no signal reception. Is it different for the R617? I have done the procedure a half a dozen times but have had no luck, it has always ended with the solid red light. I have plugged in a servo to see if anything is working but have had no luck, What am I doing wrong?

Had the same problem.. you have to change the radio to 7 channel mode for the model memory you plan to use the R617FS with, otherwise it never links.

Go to Linkage Menu -> Frequency -> Faast and select 7 ch
