Just make sure when binding, (setting fail safes) All your switch's are at default position, usually flipped backwards, away from you. And throttle is all the way down/off and don't touch any of the sticks. Thr/Rudd/Ail/Ele While performing the binding.

I started with JR so all switches away from you was the only option and the way I setup everything today even though it's no longer mandatory.

A while back I was helping out a fellow pilot who had all his switches flipped forward by default and I had to help him with some setup stuff long after he had already setup his switches this way. It drove me crazy!

Although I never, ever, ever had to rebind a DSM RX when I owned them, I prefer how to bind and/or set the fail safe for Futaba, nothing to do with switches

I also never heard the case of ever having to rebind a Futaba RX, although I had always told my students that if their brand ____ RX losses bind for any unxplained reason, don't fly that Rx again, and send it ASAP to get it service.

I created a loss of signal with Spektrum once. I have a train car on my property and I was doing range checks on a model and walked on the other side of the train car from the model and that blocked the signal. So, just don't fly with a train car between you and your model and you'll be just fine.

I had a loss of signal with DSM at IRCHA years back. It basically felt like there was something wrong with the machine, but you still had control. In reality the information was not as high resolution and data packets (that is the term I use, not sure it is correct) were being lost.

There was a VERY noticeable difference in one receiver being "dropped". this was confirmed when I landed and one sat rx was blinking. I powered down everything and it seemed fine after that. I switched radio systems shortly after that.

Moral of the story is if you do have a signal loss/fade/drop on one rx, you will most likely still have control of the helicopter, but it will feel like delayed and very non-precise reactions from the machine. At least that was my experience. If both of them drop, go get a trash bag

The only time I ever experienced signal loss with Spektrum was because of a broken sat wire. It felt weird like Ryan said so I checked my VBAR log and sure enough, a LOT of antenna switching and missed inputs. Soon thereafter I switched to Futaba to have a more robust rx connection (no tiny sat wires).
That being said I have been to IRCHA for 6years straight and I never had a signal loss there.
I also has (2) brown outs because of the dreaded AR6200 issues when they first hit the market (resulted in two crashes). Switched to AR7000s and kept everything else the same and I was good to go.

Oh yes, that AR6200 bugger. That's the one that had the small trace for the power buss didn't it? It's a good thing I was feeding power to the fbl unit and then the rx back then. Likely saved me some crashes for sure.Team POP Secret
