    Hello!
    I recently purchased a (used) FC40 without battery, so i had to buy a new one.
    The connectors inside the aircraft needed soldering because some of the insulation on one of the wires to the battery was gone.

    I tested the aircraft with a battery, it connected successfully to the controller, and i managed to start the propellers before the remote LED on the front of the FC40 started to blink. I guess it was because lack of GPS-calibration. But i found out the the aircraft was fully working.

    So i changed the battery wire, put the drone back together, but when i turned on the RC and then the aircraft, the remote LED only blink orange.
    I have tried to pair it with the aircraft over and over, but nothing happens.
    The red/orange blinking light inside the drone lights up red when the RC is not turned on, and blink orange and red when i press the button to pair it. And of corse the LED turns off when i turn on the RC.

    In the manual it says when the remote LED blink orange, the transmitter signal is lost.

    Can someone help!?

    -Freddy.

    It's not a new transmitter. Just suddenly stopped working.

    But the problem is solved. Somewhere on Youtube someone said to change the receiver type from PPM to D-Bus. This did not work either. But last night, when i tried to pair the RC again, i changed back to D-Bus. Suddenly the sliders on the stick calibration etc. was moving.
