DEAR GOD WHY WON'T IT WORK?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Postby mole55 » Tue Jul 19, 2016 6:21 pm

(ahem)

So, I've got my electronics wired up, and I'm trying to bind my Spektrum. The LemonRx random starts lighting up with no rhyme or reason, bind plug or no. And whilst I'll just be trying to figure it out, the motors will just start randomly firing off. And during all of this, the Spektrum won't enter bind mode.

Any idea what's going on here?

Are you sure you've got the bind plug in the right holes on the rx?

Yep. I've sorted the LED problem, and it hasn't had a spasm for a while, but the Spektrum still won't enter bind mode.

Are you trying to put it into bind mode right? Turn the spektrum off, then holding the trainer switch turn it on.

Dx6i. Anyway, I've developed bigger problems, meaning AWS 50 is not happening. Namely, either my Balance Charger or Battery has gone, meaning I can't test anything as I no longer have power.

Come along anyway, I'm sure whatever it is can be fixed at the event.

It's also a bit far for a "It might work." I live 4 hours away and I'm 14. Kinda hard to get transport.

For the benefit of anyone stumbling upon this thread, which switch was broken?

There is a known problem with the power switch on the Dx5e (very similar to the Dx6i) - was it this or was the trainer switch broken?
