TRANSMITTER PREPARATION
• Slide off the batttery
tray door and install
four “AA” batteries.
Make sure the
polarity is correct.
RED BATTERY
LIGHT
• Raise the antenna at the
top of the transmitter.
• The receiver should be factory bound
to the transmitter. However, if you ever
need to bind, follow these steps:
1. Turn on the transmitter.
2. Turn on the receiver via the switch on
the ESC. If the receiver is not bound,
the LED light will not be on.
3. Push and hold the bind button on the
receiver until the light glows red.
4. Release the bind button.
5. If the binding is successful, the LED
will flash once and then remain ON.
• Turn on the transmitter and check
the battery light. If the red light
glows steadily, the batteries have
enough voltage. If the red light
blinks, the batteries are low and
should be replaced.
