I just purchesed an AR500 to go in my Seagull PT-19 ARF.
The instructions for my DX7 Trannie state to Switch the power on to the receiver while the Transmitter is on and the Bind button depressed.
The Instructions for the Receiver say to press the bind button after powering up the Rec.
Either way, all I get is a rapidly flashing LED on the reciever and no binding.
What am I doing wrong?

Put the bind plug into the correct port on the receiver, and turn the receiver on.
The LED on the receiver will be flashing quite fast.
Now, depress the bind button on the transmitter and keep holding it down. Turn the transmitter on, keeping the button held down.
Watch the LED on the receiver: it's blinking pattern will change, and in approx 5 seconds, you'll hear the servos twitch and you'll have control of the model.
At this point, you can let go of the bind button on the transmitter, and then turn off the receiver, turn off the transmitter, and remove the bind plug from the receiver.

 Easy way -  Select a free channel on your TX for your seagull set to acro. Turn off the Tx  - Put your bind plug into the battery socket on your receiver.  Connect your flight pack (battery) to any of the other sockets eg : aux2 - rudder etc.  The receiver will flash rapidly. Hold in the bind button on the back of your transmitter and turn on the TX. Keep holding in the bind button till the RX light goes solid.   Pull out the battery  from your RX and the bind plug - switch off your TX  - Job done!

Both above are correct, but one thing i would add is to be patient. Sometimes the LEDs will take quite a while ( up to 30 seconds ) to go solid, which is the ONLY true confirmation that bind is complete. If using a twin rx unit such as the AR7000 etc, then wait for BOTH units LEDs to go often locks before the other.
PS dont forget to remove the bind plug and re-arrange the leads in to the rx ports as necessary.

Thanks everyone. 
I feel very stupid now.  I went back out to the shed, re-read the Trannie instructions and sorted it out.
Thanks again.
