I have a DX6i controlling my Raptor 50 through an AR6200.

Recently I copied and moved some of my models around. Now when I try to bind the heli to the new copied model it won't bind. If I change to the original model, which I haven't reset yet, everything works fine.

Question is: If I delete the original Raptor 50 model, should the heli then bind to the new copy? I haven't deleted the old one yet because I don't want to get stuck with a heli that won't bind to my radio.

I think you're confusing binding and linking.

When you change model memory, even if you copied the same model, you have to rebind the reciever (bind plug, bind button etc)to the new model memory location.

Then when you power up the system it will link.

Sounds like what you're seeing is Model Match doing its thing

Each model memory with Spektrum systems is unique, and during the bind procedure that you go through with the bind plug and transmitter bind button, you teach the receiver to listen not only to just your transmitter, but also only to the specific model memory you have chosen.

You could copy that Raptor 50 to all available model memories in your TX, but unless you go back through the bind process, your Raptor will only work with the model memory you originally bound it to. This is Spektrum's Model Match feature which prevents you from accidentally trying to fly with the wrong model selected in the transmitter.

If you go to that new model memory you created and then go through the bind process, you'll find that the receiver will then only respond to the new model you just created, and will no longer respond to the one you originally used.

Along the same lines, you can only bind one receiver to a single model memory at any given time. You can't have the same receiver responding to multiple models stored away in your TX. Each one would require that you rebind to the specific model.

This is not like the 72 MHz stuff that as long as your TX and RX were on the same channel, any stored model would work.

Gotcha. Thanks guys.

The issue is: I have the reciever bound to the original "model". When I go through the binding process with the new copy (bind plug in an open slot - power up reciever - power on tx while holding bind/trainer switch) it won't bind to the new copy. However if I switch to the original model and then power up the reciever, everything works fine.

Question is: is the presence in the radio of the original model interfering with my ability to bind to the new copy.

The bind plug doesn't go into any open slot, it goes into the batt/bind port. Thats the only port that will put it in bind mode.

The original model memory has nothing to do with your issue

Andy's correct. The plug MUST be put into the correct socket of your receiver to put it in bind mode. You simply cannot plug it into any available socket and expect it to work.

What you are experiencing is operator error....

Ah! NOW I've got it. It's power that can be applied to any open slot. I had it backwards. All set now and bound to the new model.

Thanks guys!
