Default OrangeRx R110X not binding... need help please.

I searched for an answer but couldn't find much concerning my problem. This is frustrating. I got the OrangeRx R110X DSMX satellite receiver from HobbyKing today. I'm following the instructions from the Align video to bind to a Spektrum satellite but this orange one will not bind. Do I need to follow a different procedure with this orange satellite to make it bind to my Align 150? I got this at Father's day and I still can't fly it.
I'm using a DX7S radio and I'm trying to bind in DSMX.

Thanks

I just thought of something, if a Trex 150 DFC was binded with a Spektrum satellite with DX7S once, can it be binded to the same DX7S with a different satellite?
I ask this because before getting this orange satellite, I binded the Trex with the Spektrum satellite but thought it was too big so I decided to try the orange one.
Can this be the problem?

Thanks

Red face Orange vrs Spektrum Satellites

On 2 of my Align 150s I pulled the Spektrum satellites and installed HK orange R100 satellites.
Why?
The Spektrum satellites are way way to large for a 150, they are heavy, and the two antennas interfere with the canopy install.

OrangeRx R100 Spektrum/JR DSM2 Compatible Satellite Receiver $6.99

Is better suited for the Align 150 DFC,
This may be the problem
Per Align manual
You are installing a DSMX Satellite not the above DSM2 Satellite. The bind procedure are not the same.

I was following the DSMX bind procedure but it won't work. So this R110X is not compatible with the TREX 150. And to think I paid $27 for EMS
I bought the satellite that was linked in the TREX 150 FAQ which is the R100X that refuses to bind to my 150. Maybe a correction should be made if the R100X is in fact not compatible with the TREX 150.

This is the link from the FAQ: OrangeRx_R110X_2_4Ghz_DSMX_Satellite_Receiver

So to make sure I don't order the wrong thing this time, THIS is the one I should get?

Red face Smaller Lighter better Fit

Yes
Orange Rx R100 is what I have on both of my 150s.
The R100 small size, low weight, and single antenna lead that can be tucked away is the best satellite Rx for your Align 150 DFC.
Now
I don't have a R110 to do a test bind but even if it is compatible with the Align 150 the R100 is the better buy and better fit up.

I need help with this, I got this thing at Father's day and still haven't flown it. First it was because I had the wrong Futaba radio, second, I got the wrong satellite which was the Orange DSMX R110X. Now I have the right satellite, the Orange R100 and following every single step of the binding video, my DX7S radio will not bind to the R100 satellite.

Thanks
Ray

I got it! All I needed to do was to have the DX7S further away from the heli. Like 5 feet away.

Red face Radio Receiver Separation Fix

That is really odd deal. I bind both my 150/R100 within inches of my 7s and 8.
But
I have read that sometimes you need space between your radio and your receiver to bind but 5 feet is a lot. I am surprised you found your radio receiver separation fix.
Well
As you probably found out that R100 is a really nice fit with the 150. Again I pulled all Spektrum sats and installed R100s. I just didn't like the way the Spekturm sat antenna folded back due to the canopy and I also wanted to reduce any Rx/MRS vibration issues.

I also read about someone who had to put his radio a few feet away from the heli for it to bind so I just tried it and it worked. This little heli flies nice by the way.

Smile orange r100 dsm2 with T-REX 150

Hi,
i got some problem binding at first, now it's working perfectly.

It start working properly when my spektrum radio was configure as per Align instruction.
For spektrum radio you must reverse 4 channel: elevator, rudder, pitch and aileron.

If you try binding prior to the reversing those channel, 150 mds doesn't like it.

Hope this help new t-rex 150 buyer

Default R100 help

I'm trying to bind the R100 SAT rx to the TREX 150X. When i plug in the R100 and try to go into bind mode by holding the bind button and plugging in battery the R100 won't go into bind mode (no flashing light). When i first turn on everything i get one single quick flash on the R100 then nothing else.
Also, the pin out of the R100 and Futaba RX are different. See pic, the top one with short plug (supplied with heli) is different config then lower with long plug (came with R100). Any help would be great since i don't have the Spektum Sat RX (didn't get it with xmas gift). Thanks
