Default 6EX fasst buddy box setup

I bought 2 6ex 2.4GHz FASST boxes for my 2 kids. I also got the connector cable for the transmitter. When I hook the cable up and switch the master on (with the slave off), I am not able to control the plane with the slave box at all, no matter in what position I hold the trainer switch on the master box. Master always controls the plane. The slave box is "lit" up, but the control input has no consequence on the palne. What am I missing???
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Andreas

Did you turn on the Trainer function in the transmitter you want to use as the master? Please see page 15 in the manual.

Hi Bill,

thanks for this very valuable piece of information. That is exactly what happened. Maybe you could indert that info also on pg. 33 of the manual. I looked in the index for the buddy box set up and it referred me to pg 33, and there is no mention of that.
Great and fast advice, I appreciate your quick help.

With best regards,
Andreas

I have the FUTABA FASST T7c for more than a year and it is the best radio I ever had but....I just found my first problem, the trainer program will not activate I have done every thing [/b] that the instructions in the book say, so I'm not sure if I'm missing  a menu or am I doing something wrong? (the snap roll works just fine so the switch isn't broken)
I have the training cord that match both radios(it came with the Real Fight G5.5) I'm trying to use the Futaba SKYSPORT T4YF (FM) as the training box 

check this video were I show the problem  (I hope I'm just doing some thing wrong)


I hope you can help me

Watched the video, maybe you should try an actual set-up with the two Tx connected by a trainer cord and a master Rx and servos to verify the function. It might be that the trainer function in the 7c only enable when connection is established..

thanks for replying

that was the first thing I try just like the book says and I thing is just like you say, the buddy box have to be connected for the trainer program to activated butstill doesn't work so Itry it the other way around using the SKYSPORT T4YF as the master and the T7C as buddy box and when everithing is connected the SKYSPORT control the servos just fine but when i hit the trainer switch the servos stop responding to de controls (like it shuold be) but the T7C does no control them either so I think there may be some thing wrong with the T7C trainer connection hole or output
