Default Futaba R6208SB Receiver & JR ST47BB Servos (Ball Bearing)

I did the binding with the radio but canít get the servos moving. The receiver is in normal speed mode but its light goes off after I plug in the servos. Any advice?

What color is the LED after binding and is it solid or flashing?

Sure your TX is in 10 channel mode?

have you tried other servos?

Verify the polarity of the servos too. JR with Futaba have always been easy to reverse polarity.

Reversing polarity would immediately fry the servo. Plugging the servo in the RX 180 degrees out will not damage the servo but it will not work either.

I tried with the TX in all modes.
