Hello heli Gods!

I’m writing as i have completed my fireball build but am in the frustrating stage of setting up the ikon2. I’m basically stuck at binding and haven’t been able to run through the set up wizard as of that reason. I have successfully bound to a AR8010t and tried to lateral to the ikon but no success. I have a DX8 G2 and can’t seem to bind through the regular means. I would Really appreciate any advice and or if anyone wants to help a braddah out in Hawaii a FaceTime or Line video chat could be done. I’d ask a local heli pilot but I’m the only one in Kona Hawaii flying heli so I’m stuck on my own. Any tips or advice would be sweet. If anyone could manage a video chat that would help a bunch as well. I know.... awkward at first but hey..... the hobby brings us all together. Thanks for any replies or help in advance and aloha to all. Take care.

Binding is accomplished in Panel 3...

Be sure you have selected DSMX in the bottom row...then check Spektrum Bind box...

Cycle power (unplug battery and iKON2 USB cable) and plug in the battery...TX off

The satellite should flash...TX power on with Bind button pressed

Might need to check your TX's frame rate...I suggest 11ms DSMX (yours might be on DSM2)

I use the Servo travel radio function but ONLY on that tab to get all to 100%.

Hello and welcome to the forum! This is the new member introduction forum for introducing yourself and where you are from, and not a specific topic help forum so there is very little traffic here to see your question.

I suggest you post in the dedicated Brain/Ikon FBL unit forum where your post will be seen by a lot more people using the same equipment that can assist you.
