I'm spektrum mania, but recently i'm having some problem in my new
radia control system, DX8.

I have an AR8000 on Vibe 90sg and I fly it off a dx8 with TM1000.

I notice problem when I control the spectrum radio control system.
It takes long to connect or it fails connecting the RX when it turns on. The TX is away approximately 8 to 12 feet from the RX as reported by DX8 manual when I turn on the TX and RX. I also do connecting test from 1 to 20 feet. As a result,it doesn’t matter a distance of RX and TX.

Now, I devise some expedient method to solve this problem.
If TX turns off and then on again except RX in connecting status( solid yellow led), RX signal indicates yellow solid light and red flash light which is related with the number of turn the TX off or number of no-control at the same time. However, if it appears RX connecting problem, turns the TX off and then on again 1 to 3.

You will find the RX signal shows the solid led. It works well without fail-safe mode(flash) or no-control(red flash 1 to # of no-con) according to this expedient method. The problem occur not only AR8000 but also AR9000 simultaneously. Also the DX8 shows the same symptom in my RC car with ar7000 and in the Trex-450 of my acquaintance with ar6250.
I can prove current situation by UCC, if it’s necessary.

Additionally, my DX8 was updated to 1.04.

I think that this problem may occur very few RC users and thus is your luck.

check to see if the TX wire is connected inside the DX8.

Does it pass range test?

Thank you for your response.

I will do the range test this weekend.
Also, there are a few ideas in there that i will try and use to
eliminate the root cause.

I will keep you posted on the progress.

Range check as said, but know that several reports this after the dx8 has been back on the recall, horizon update the txboard and it has linkup issues after that it seems.

One over at HF had a loose antenna cable after the recall so thats worth checking if range check fails.

Gone fishing..or hunting..or something
