    Hi

    Just got my ALTA back from Freefly after repair.

    I mount the Futaba receiver on the drone and pair it. Got the green light on the receiver and telemetry on my Futaba remote. Of course remote in the app is set to sbus as the plug in the receiver.

    Turen All off on an again. Still green light on the receiver and telemetry on remote, but LOS on radio signal.

    Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    Hi Stefan:
    That's really weird. After the power cycling, the green light on the receiver and the fact that you're seeing telemetry from the ALTA would seem to "prove" that the transmitter and the receiver are still paired.

    Where are you see the LOS? On the Futaba transmitter? Or on the iPhone app?

    Found the problem. I put the connector into the SB port and not the SBUS2 port ..... :) Thought SB stod for Sbus

    Aha! Thanks for posting. You're officially a victim of Ginsberg's Theorem -- which states "Things work better when they are plugged in." :)
