    Yes! it is working.
    "Just hold the link button on the receiver while you switch on the ESC. Then hold the set button on the TX while you turn that on, they should both flash red then green" i found it from this forum
    so why didnt it in my Traxxas Owners manual??

    It is probably in there... I know with mine it is no where near the section about the radio for some reason.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    It's there you just missed it


    Page 8 of the TQI manual:

    TQi Binding Instructions
    For proper operation, the transmitter and receiver must be
    electronically ‘bound.’ This has been done for you at the factory.
    Should you ever need to re-bind the system or bind to an additional
    transmitter or receiver, follow these instructions. Note: the receiver
    must be connected to a 4.8-6.0v (nominal) power source for binding
    and the transmitter and receiver must be within 5 feet of each other.
    1. Press and hold the transmitter’s SET button as you switch
    transmitter on. The transmitter’s LED will flash red slowly. Release
    the SET button.
    2. Press and hold the receiver’s LINK button as you switch the model
    on. Release the LINK button.
    3. When the transmitter and receiver’s LEDs turn solid green, the
    system is bound and ready for use. Confirm that the steering and
    throttle operate properly before driving your model.

    Page 16 of the 1/16 E-revo VXL manual:

    1. Press and hold the transmitter’s SET button as you switch
    transmitter on. The transmitter’s LED will flash red slowly.
    Release the SET button
    2. Press and hold the receiver’s LINK button as you switch on
    the speed control by pressing the EZ-Set button. Release the
    LINK button.
    3. When the transmitter and receiver’s LEDs turn solid green, the
    system is bound and ready for use. Confirm that the steering and
    throttle operate properly before driving your model.

    So while we're on the subject of 2218s & the TQi TX......

    When linked & in use, the iphone doesn't show that the RX is connected. With my TQi RX, it does. Is something odd going on there? Everything functions fine, just odd that the RX light is red, not green.
