    How do I bind the M15 to the Spektrum DX7s?

    I tried to connect the M15 to the Spektrum receiver, but it doesn’t seem possible. The cable that comes out of the MoVi (see image attached) doesn’t fit into any of the slots on the receiver (image attached).

    Hi Ben,

    First, you only need the Satellite part of the receiver, so unplug the 3-pin plug from the part that says AR8000. That little receiver and cable is all you need.

    Next, you need to remove the two bolts that hold the cap on where that 5-pin cable comes out of your Movi, and run your little 3-pin cable up there. It acts as a strain-relief, so be careful not to pinch the cables when doing it. Plug it in the 3-pin hole marked 'Spektrum' and replace the cap. I use velcro to hold my receiver on the back there.

    The 5-pin cable that's currently hanging out of your Movi is for the Mimic\Movi Controller receiver.

    Do you get any lights on the Spektrum receiver? I had an issue where spektrum receivers kept getting burnt out just by being plugged into my power up M15. I actually fried 3 receivers before finally giving up. I'm not sure where to go from here, but make sure the receiver is still powering up and working and isn't fried.

    I know this sounds weird but when binding a Spektrum transmitter to a Spectrum receiver (in fixed wing aircraft), it works better if the transmitter is about eight to ten feet away from the receiver. I was reading about this on rcgroups.com yesterday -- I posted a message to Andy Kunz, the Spektrum dev/forum support guy asking why this was necessary and it appears that the transmitter "swamps" the receiver if they are too close together.

    I've not heard about the M15 frying Spektrum receivers, before, Philip -- did you report this to Freefly?
    Cheers
    Andy
