    Transmitter Flashing Red????

    I tried to bind my receiver and transmitter but all I get is a flashing red light on both.

    I cleared out the memory of the Transmitter but when I hold down menu after a few seconds it just starts flashing again. Once it's flashing I can't do anything to make it stop until I turn it off or pull the batteries.

    Has anyone had issues like this?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Worked like a charm.. It wasn't binding and I missed the part about holding the link button down while connecting the battery.
    Thanks for the help guy's

    Hey ARMYGUY

    Its easy....but you may need a second set of hands lol

    1. Press and Hold the SET button as you Turn the Transmitter ON. The Transmitter LED will flash RED Slowly, release the SET Button

    2. Press and HOLD the Receivers LINK Button as you switch the model on. Then Release the LINK Button

    3. When the Transmitter and Receivers LED's turn solid GREEN the system is bound and ready for use. Confirm that the Steering and Throttle are working correctly.

    Hope that helps

    I figured it out, I plugged the esc into the second channel 1 port.. Plugged it into the right spot and I'm good to go!!

    Well I have tried this as well. Switched the ESC to channel port 1 and 2. I get turning and brake although a very delayed response in the braking, but I get no throttle and the servo twitches once about every second. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I have 3.3 t-maxx don't know the model number as i just bought it from a privte party but it is not have the longer chassis. It does have the grey trans and such. I had bought a 2.4 TX/ RX from a member here and replaced the 24mhz electronics. I will check the downloads and see what that has to offer. Thanks for the help.
