Default Binding issues TRex 150x with Futaba

Hello

I recently picked up a used TRex 150x here on HF. The previous owner had been flying Spectrum. I can't get it to bind to my Futaba.

I can connect with the app, and I updated the firmware and changed the radio type to S-FHSS. All of the setup features on the app seem to work fine.

When I insert the battery I see a blue light that then goes to a red flashing light. When I press the bind button the light changes to a flashing green light. Then a solid red light, then red flashing again.

I've tried 3 Futaba transmitters with no luck (My brand new 32mz, a 18sz, and an 14sg).

I've tried binding with the throttle at -100 and at +100.

Is there something else I should try before I start trying to replace things?

i don't own a 150. But i have been thinking of getting one. I believe to fly it with spectrum you have to add a receiver board. Which fits under the main board and plugs in to it. You did say the previous owner flew it with spectrum. You will need to remove this receiver board for it to bind to your futaba. If You look on Youtube there on some setup videos for this heli.

Hey, afaik you have to keep holding bind button within inserting the battery, instead of clicking on it after. I hope this helps.

I got this from this video it is for spectrum but probably the binding process should be the same.

Thanks! I’ve followed the video with no luck. I’ve tried holding the button on power up. I’ve tried pressing it after power on. I can’t get it to bind. The old spectrum sat was removed by the previous owner.

I’ve ordered a new board from AMain for the 150. I don’t know what else to try on it.

Did you reverse your throtlle? The 150x needs "regular throttle", not reversed.
See attachment from manual.
