Default Ar6100 slow blinking light

For some reason my receiver has a constantly slow blinking light on at all times. I try rebinding and the light goes solid and stays solid for the first flight right after it but then. After going for second or third the slow blinking light comes on right after plugging in the battery and stays on indefinitely . I read that in the 1.6 firmware it starts blinking like that to show that there was a brownout during flight ,but since It's starting from the moment I plugged in the battery I have no idea what's causing it .

I even tried it on a few of my other heli's just to make sure that it was something wrong with the power system and the problem persisted . Anybody have any idea what could be wrong ? or is this something I should contact the manufacturer for .

It's working as advertised most likely.

If you don't turn the transmitter off when it comes back up it sees it as a power failure, the reciever doesn't know you disconnected it, it just knows it sees the last two channels it was using and instantly connects and signals a power failure.

If you turn off the transmitter and back on the system will renegociate and you should get solid lights.

If you take off with solid lights, and they are blinking when you land, that means it had a power problem in flight.
