Default Torro King Tiger issues

So I recently purchased a 1/16 Torro King Tiger w/Henchel turret Airsoft variant, unpainted. Spare some zimmerit and coats of paint I have made no modifications to the vehicle and I started to run into issues. Much to my disappointment the vehicle will not connect to its transmitter. From what I can tell both are in working condition, the tank sits in standby mode with headlight blinking. However when I go to operate the tank the remote will not connect nor bind. The remote has fresh batteries and the tank's battery is freshly charged. The tank features what I believe to be Taigen V3 electronics and their latest transmitter. Im new to this and any help would be appreciated

Start with the basics: Did you try to rebind using Taigen's V3 process? (Turn the tank on, turn on transmitter while holding the machine gun button). The transmitter should flash until the binding process is complete. You can also find the V3 instructions here: https://www.taigentanks.com/taigen-p...e-gb/tag120604

If the system is V1: Turn on the tank, flip the machine gun switch toward you, turn on transmitter. Trans will blink until bind is complete.

Just tried using both methods, no dice. It doesn't respond to the transmitter and the tank will not bind and continues to flash the headlight

Try turning both of them on within about 2-3 seconds of each other when doing the bind process. The motherboard actually goes into bind mode each time it boots but only for a few seconds, less than the transmitter. Once it binds there is no feedback, you just will use the left toggle to start/stop the tank (if it works of course) after that.
If that doesn't work we can go with a few other things next such as:
Does the transmitter blink rapidly for about 4 seconds when you turn it on? This is the transmitter going into bind mode. We have two different versions of transmitters, the older one has the MG on a toggle while the newer ones have that switch assigned to a smoke unit and a small push button to the right of the toggle now for the MG instead.
Did it work before? Did you purchase it as a whole like a kit we offer (or us possibly?) as if you got it in a kit/aio bundle it should of been bound for you.

I have tried that as well, the transmitter goes into bind mode and apparently it binds however no commands are given to the tank. The tank also flashes its headlight continously and the MG flashes once after going through the steps. It has the newest version transmitter with the smoke switch and Mg button. This problem has persisted since I got it in the mail as a finished vehicle, unthinkingly I started working on the appearance of the vehicle without testing further. And no I dont believe I bought it through Imex Erik, I got it online from a company called Zandatoys.

Yea if it was us or one of our dealers I would have you covered already. The MG light shouldn't flash at all when binding or even starting up for the first time. Chances are something is wrong there. Send them a message and see if they will work with you on getting it replaced.

Yeah I've tried and they just gave me the cold shoulder, so I'm stuck with this thing. I'm just trying to figure out what I gotta do to get it working, not to mention I can't return it. Well now I know to go through you guys the next time I buy anything else like this.

Once again thank you for your help and I hope this will be resolved without too much hair being pulled out.

So in the mean time I definitely ruled out the battery. I just hope that it can run if it is fixed.
