Depends on what code is in the AR636A. You may need to have it flat down on a table top to get it to bind. Do you see the LEDs flashing properly? Can you bind to a different receiver type?

The DX4e works just fine with the receiver.

Oh, and make sure you're plugging in the battery the right way. It will look like it's working if you have it in wrong, but it won't really work.

That's consistent with the power inserted backwards.

Poor choice of words on my part.

The behavior is consistent with putting the servo lead into the receiver upside down. Pay close attention to the D shape of the hole in the receiver case. Make sure you put the ESC servo lead in the correct way.
