Default Failure to bind

I have a HZ Champ that will not bind either with the tx that came with it or a Dx6i. The red led blinks fast when it's powered on but will not bind and go constant. Any suggestions or ideas to get it to bind or should I just save it for parts

I'm assuming you are following the correct procedure and putting the Tx into bind mode.

That being the case then only thing i can suggest is making sure that you have a good arm's length distance between the Tx and the plane. If the Tx is too close it can prevent binding.

TX off
No power to the aircraft.

Plug in the aircraft.
THEN turn on TX in bind mode.

Don't do it near any operating 2.4 ghz computer mouse, video camera or similar.

I often have to separate the radio from the receiver by 10-15 feet to get a bind.

ditto to all the above, I always do it outside too, electrical interferance in the house from wifi or whatever else always seems to mess with me binding.

Default Thanks

For the advice above guys. It worked!! I went outside and went 25 to 30 feet down the driveway and presto, it connected. I circled the back yard with it then put it away until I can go to the park again. Heat index of 110 keeps me indoors building and fixing. Thanks again.

Now... TX on (normal mode) first and it should act fine even with the interference indoors that prevented binding.
