Thread: DX6i not binding
16/02/2018 21:02:10
Posted by Denis Watkins on 16/02/2018 20:57:13:

If you go further through that menu Cliff, there is a setting

DSM2 Only

That's right Denis but I've tried both options and neither work, perhaps the menu says DSM2 but the hardware won't actually do it.

I wonder if anyone else has a DX6i with DSM-X that can successfully change it to DSM-2 only?

16/02/2018 20:48:29

Just a point but on the modulation type one of the two choices is 'AUTO DSM-X AND DSM-2 STANDARD RECEIVER' this is the setting I fly with my other indoor models, why does it say DSM-2 if it's not capable of transmitting in the modulation type?

Maybe simpler and cheaper to just buy an inexpensive DSM2 tranny to use with your micro stuff?

I've been using my Tx for all my micro stuff and up to now it's work very well, it's just these new pkz3200's.

Thanks everyone for your advice I'm now looking for a Spektrum DX6i with dsm2.

Clutching at straws a bit.

Have you sent your DX6i into Horizon since the beginning of 2016? If so it will have DSM2 disabled as it no longer legal for a manufacturer to use it. If your brick is DSM2 only then it will not bind. Remember just because you bought the brick recently it does not necessarily mean it is the latest version. wink 2

Like I said - clutching at straws..

I bought the Tx second-hand so I don't know the history, it is a DX6i with DSMx. I emailed Horizon Hobbies today and simply asked them will my Tx work with this brick, this is what they said:

'No it will not work. The Ember RTF (PKZ3200) was a Parkzone exclusive 2.4gHz operation. It is not a Spektrum receiver and will not bind to any of our Spektrum 2.4gHz transmitters.'

Well, it bound immediately to a friend's DX6e and another friend's DX6i with DSM2, so I don't have much confidence in what he says.

I'm now wondering if I can get the DSM2 re-instated on my Tx?

Already tried both settings, no change sad

15/02/2018 22:05:37

Worth trying though Keith.

Apparently he newer PKZ3352 is both DSM2 and DSMX compatible according to the Horizon website so that's not the problem.

15/02/2018 21:30:38

Just left it for five minutes at two metres binding with no luck, bind switch held in place with a rubber band!

15/02/2018 21:17:29

As expected they pinged my B6AC charger within five minutes of being placed on charge, so definately fully charged, even tried going 10 yards away just to make sure, I'm really stumped on this one?

15/02/2018 20:49:24

Tried 12ft away ... no joy dont know

15/02/2018 19:22:10

The problem deepens !!

Thanks for your input though.

Denis, are you saying you think the DSMX doesn't work with this brick? I didn't think it would make any difference as the transmitter also uses the DSM2 modulation!

15/02/2018 18:55:24

Feeling frustrated!!

My DX6i refuses to bind with my brand new Horizon Hobbies PKZ3352 ultra micro receiver brick.

The batteries are fully charged, Tx and Rx, I've tried a greater distance when pulling the 'trainer' (bind) switch up, the Rx bind light flashes rapidly, it just won't bind.

I've also got a second brand new brick but that won't behave either.

Any ideas?

I can see a time when nobody will 'own' a car anyway, you'll just call one from your app. and a driverless vehicle will arrive at your door, pop in your credit card and destination and off you go, simple. (As long as you can get a couple of models in the back of course) frown

I discovered the receiver must be mounted in the same orientation as it was originally otherwise the AS3X tries to correct the flight for the wrong surface.
