    Hello

    I've been flying my phantom now for a couple of trouble free weeks. Have downloaded all software, firmware etc. Went to fly today and when I plug in lipo I get yellow blinks, the same yellow blinks you see when you power up phantom before turning on transmitter. I went home and connected to the Naza assistant and tx was unresponsive. I then popped open the top and saw that the red light on the receiver was ON indicating no tx signal. I tried to bind them with no success. I thought I was an idiot and doing something wrong so I took it into the local hobby shop with the same result.

    He said that was the first transmitter he had seen that had failed. I was wondering if anyone else has had and transmitter/receiver binding issues or perhaps another perspective on the problem?

    Thanks

    probably just one of those odd component failures inside the tx, or rx. No real reason for it, just one of those things.
