    When I go to bind it has the first typical sound , then no beep and red light flashes for a little while than white light stays on sometimes. Seems like it recognizes TX. but will not bind. Happened right after switching from the mix switch from intermediate to stabilize mode in flight. Worked for a little while after only it seemed to have a mind of its own on controlling what it did. Any suggestions what I may do to fix this, really cant find anything similar in the forum, Really would appreciate some input on this

    What happens when you start a fresh bind. Did you ever set Fixed ID?

    Check the Antenna for nicks

    Cheers

    My TX works fine on a different Rodeo 150 so I think the transmitter is good.
    The 150 does not do the last 2 binding beeps and flashes red.
    I tried the reset button on RX while plugging battery in,no change, or nicks in antenna. Do you have any more ideas, I am inclining to order a new RX, any thoughts? Thank You for your response,

    Ok could be loose RX or FC connection. Remove FC and RX clean connections with isopropyl alcohol and reassemble.

    Took it through complete dissasembly,checked and replaced connection wire in front hood that showed bare wires from lights, checked all connections ,no signs of breakage, Assembled completely,cleaned FC and RX connections with Isopropyl alcohol all looked good by the eye, still no luck. only white light stays on, no change in sound as before.RX steady red light when TX is on,Blinks when TX is off. No bind

    If the indicator changes when TX is Off / On then it is binding, the problem is elsewhere.

    Is your TX programmed correctly.

    Have a you ever connected the F150 to your PC?
