Default Receiver Problems

My RC plane has 2 switches. One for the ignition and one for the receiver/plane. On the switch for the plane has 3 wires. One for the receiver, one for the charge and one that goes to the battery. Every time I cut off the plane and back on it goes into the bind mode. Why is that?

Radio make and model? Are you sure it's going into the bind mode or are you just seeing flashing lights on the rx's?

Sounds like an older Spektrum that will flash lights when cycled as you say as a warning that a power interruption had occurred. If it actually goes into the bind mode, you've got a problem. If it is an older Spektrum and not actually going into bind mode, it's doing just as it should.

That would be a DSM2 rx versus DSMX which would not blink a brown out condition of power.

That receiver is the AR6210. I had it in the plane for about 6 years without any problems. My battery went bad (2000 mAh NiMH) so I decided to use the Lipo 2 cell battery. That when the problem came. I even went back to the 2000 mAh NiMH and the same thing. It goes into the bind mode. Its definitely going into the bind mode. I also have the DX9 transmitter (SPMR9910). Also I’m using a 2 cell 7.4 lipo 2550 mah.

If you have a receiver that always goes into bind mode, send it in.
