Receiver binding

Before using your receiver with MICROBEAST PLUS make sure that the receiver is bound to the transmitter and that it is sending output data on the servo outputs and/or single-line port. Please refer to the manual of your radio system to find out how binding procedure is performed with your specific system. Also check if there is the need to perform special settings to enable the single-line data output of the receiver in case you intend to use this output port in combination with MICROBEAST PLUS.

Only in the case of using a single Spektrum® satellite receiver that is directly connected to MICROBEAST PLUS, this is bound by the aid of MICROBEAST PLUS as there is no other option to enable binding procedure at the receiver. Even more, here it is very important to bind the receiver first before programming MICROBEAST PLUS and this step must be performed, even if the satellite was already in use elsewhere (e. g. in connection with a “Standard” Spektrum® receiver) and was already bound to the transmitter earlier.

Simultaneously with the binding process, the type of satellite receiver has to be set, i.e. whether it is a DSMX or DSM2 satellite (The actual selected signal protocol in the transmitter is not relevant!). It is very important to choose the correct type of satellite receiver here, since an improper setting may seem to work but can lead to radio interference or total loss of the link in the subsequent operation!

Insert a Spektrum® “Bind Plug” at the [SYS] port of MICROBEAST PLUS. In case the power is supplied exclusively at the [SYS] connection, to bind a Spektrum® satellite receiver the power supply must be provided temporarily through any of the other ports [CH1] - [CH5]. To select a DSM2 satellite and to enter bind mode, simply switch on the power supply now. The LED on the receiver and LED N on MICROBEAST PLUS will start to flash. You can bind the transmitter as usual (for more information refer to the instructions of your radio control system). To select and bind a DSMX satellite, hold down the button on MICROBEAST PLUS while switching on the power supply. Now the receiver‘s LED and LED H (!) on the MICROBEAST PLUS will flash and you can release the button and bind the receiver with your transmitter. After successful binding procedure the receiver‘s LED will stay solid. LED H respectively N flash alternately to all other LEDs. Now switch off the power supply and remove the bind plug. Continue with receiver type setup in the next step.

  • Decisive for the selection alone is, which type of satellite receiver is plugged in! It is irrelevant which transmission method between the receiver and transmitter is actually used. Check carefully what type of receiver you have and what type you setup. An incorrect setting is not obvious but will lead to malfunction or failure of the radio link later in use.
  • It makes no difference if you pull off the “Bind Plug” during the binding process or leave it connected as you would expect from some “standard” Spektrum® receivers!
