The AR636 w/SAFE that comes with the Night Visionaire will not initialize unless the plane is sitting motionless on its landing gear.

In this orientation the receiver is upside down (label-side down).

If the customer is looking at the receiver when binding, chances are the plane is on its back and the receiver will never initialize label-side up.

 To bind:

  1.        Place bind plug in receiver and place the plane on its wheels.
  2.        Connect the battery to the esc
  3.        Rx will flash, lower thro stick and trim and place tx in bind mode
  4.        Once rx is bound it will take a further 5-10 seconds to initialize and surfaces will wag.
  5.        Remove bind plug.
  6.        To test AS3X (remove prop) advance throttle past 50% and lower.

When you move plane around surfaces will correct as normal AS3X does.

Hold the plane out of level and press panic: elevator and/or aileron will deflect and not neutralize until plane is level.
