I’m having problems connecting my RC controller to my receiver/autopilot. As the title says, I have a new Devo7E and a new RX701. The autopilot is all working correctly, and everything bar the radio has been calibrated.
I believe the issue may be the receiver - perhaps dud?
Although not explicitly said on any manual, it would seem that by default if I turn both the TX and RX on, they should find each other within 10 seconds. They don’t. So I’ve followed tutorials/manuals regarding the binding (or unbinding) process of the RX701 with the bind plug. However, regardless of what I do, I cannot get any response from the red LED on the RX. It simply doesn’t light up at all.
The RX is connected to a Pixhack via the PPM encoder, which has a rapidly flashing red light, so that has power. The connection between the PPM encoder and the RX701 seems solid. I have tried this with both battery and USB power, so I don’t think it’s a power issue.
