Default Hitec Spectra Module teething problems

Good news i have received my Hitec module with two 9ch Rx.

I'm trying to figure out the basics. I have bound the Rx successfully, but when I take the Binding plug out, the system doesn't work. It works fine with the plug in the SPC slot.

I'm used to Spektrum, so I assume what looks like the binding plug in Hitec Rx (SPC port) has to be taken out prior to use. Am I correct? There's NO mention of the binding plug in the illustrations that came with the module.

Can someone tell me the basics please?

I appreciate your help as I am a little dyslectic (really) and sometimes miss the obvious.

Thanks,
V.

It is not a bind plug! It is a power jumper. If you remove it you remove power from the receiver. Hitec does not use a binding plug. There is a bind button on the RX. That SPC jumper is removed if you want to run the Rx from a seperate battery up to 30+ volts.

Read your manual.
Good luck

The Optima do not use "Binding Plugs"
The blanking plug in the SPC port must be inserted if no battery lead is inserted, refer detail and pictures under:.
Optima Transceiver (RX) - SPC - SPC connection & Lead Detailed plus Optima Current Draw/Amps - NB: View warning Video re use of balance taps.
Optima Transceiver & Minima (RX) - Voltage Input Limits.

Thanks Alan, it makes sense to me now!

Jim, I wish I had a manual
The module came with a little pamphlet, no mention of the "plug". That's why I'm on here with silly questions

Cheers,
V.
