Q: Sometimes my receiver loses its bind and won’t
connect, requiring rebinding. What happens if the bind
is lost in flight?
A: The receiver will never lose its bind unless it’s
instructed to. It’s important to understand that during
the binding process the receiver not only learns the
GUID (code) of the transmitter but the transmitter
learns and stores the type of receiver that it’s bound to.
If the bind button on the transmitter is pressed at any
time and the transmitter is turned on, the transmitter
looks for the binding protocol signal from a receiver.
If no signal is present, the transmitter no longer has
the correct information to connect to a specific receiver
and in essence the transmitter has been “unbound”
from the receiver. We’ve had several customers that
use transmitter stands or trays that unknowingly
depress the bind button and the system is then turned
on, losing the necessary information to allow the
connection to take place. We’ve also had customers
that didn’t fully understand the range test process
and pushed the bind button before turning on the
transmitter, also causing the system to “lose its bind.”
If, when turning on, the system fails to connect, one of
the following has occurred:
• The wrong model has been selected in the model
memory (Model Match).
• The transmitter is near conductive material
(transmitter case, truck bed, etc.) and the reflected
2.4GHz energy is preventing the system from
connecting (see #2 above).
• The bind button was unknowingly (or knowingly)
depressed and the transmitter was turned on
previously, causing the transmitter to no longer
recognize the receiver.
