Default radio problem for newbie

Im working on a new plane and following the instruction. New batteries in transmitter. Battery charged for plane. connect battery to esc and attach switch lead to receiver. Switch on transmitter and then switch on receiver. The first time I did this it worked fine. Now it will not work at all. Help!

Have you check the connector from the battery to the receiver? Check another receiver or if your receiver is one that's need to bind to the transmitter have you check that?

What transmitter and receiver are you talking about? Please give more info.

Are you sure you are polarity Pos to pos, and not reversed? fonts are super small, and not in a wrong pin?

I don't use Futaba, but suggest the following,
Bind again, remove bind plug, switch off receiver, then be sure to turn off transmitter.

Switch on transmitter, then switch on receiver. The thing to make sure is to turn off transmitter after
binding, this is essential with Spectrum not sure about Futaba.

Note the plugs and sockets on your gear is so designed that if you plug in the wrong way,
ie not pos to pos, neg to neg and signal to signal as it should be, you won't damage anything but of course
it won't work.
Good luck, I know how frustrating it can be at first. john
