I have a Spectrum 9020 reciever, I'm running 2 satellites. I noticed the other day that one of the satellites would intermittenly blink. I didn't have any issues, the heli was flying fine. Is this normal? It was also doing it with the engine, (turbine) off.

Could be a frayed wire going to the satellite or a power interruption of some sort to that satellite..

I've decided it is the satellite. I plugged the questionable satellite into another port, it did the same thing. I plugged another wire loom into that satellite, it still blinked. I plugged a different satellite into that loom, no problem. So I guess I had a bad satellite.

I think you have isolated it and replacing the sat. makes sense.

Quite awhile ago, some Spektrum satellites made it out of the factory with insufficient/non-existent solder on the three-pin connector. This caused intermittent operation.

Send it to Horizon, they will take care of you quickly and efficiently.
