Default FAULTY VBAR ??? MAYBE ???

OK Vbar Pro's...

I just got a brand new VBAR, installed the 5.3.2 update and now the it doesn't hold the connection. I re-bind it a dozen time and is fine, but as soon as I move the sticks... the receiver start blinking. I changed:

the battery, receiver, re-bind and no luck! any ideas?

I may have a bad VBAR !!!???

Try a regular rx pack or 2s pack if your electronics can take it

Also try unhooking one servo at the time, does it do it with 2 servos? 1?

Yes ive had a similar issue like this and put it down to a power draw issue
I bound one satellite though the vbar and gave it some bench test movements and punched the collective stick and it would lag out on me and send the sat in two a flashing sequence.
So to get passed it I hooked up the standard receiver (ar8000 with the sat) and it created a stronger link I understand and all is well on my 700N

my setup was with the one sat to vbar:
2in1 align regulator
2S 2650mah nano tech

powering 4 Ds610s and a Ds650, vbar of course and that one sat

saying that I was getting 5+ flights running on that one pack though my old 3G align before I charged it but now I get just get three flights before the lights go red on the 2in1 where I stop flying and change packs

more power demand is it?

If you have a bad regulator would it show in the Log as a voltage error??
