mbagawin: hi sir, how come my corona DSSS receiver after switching on the batt the
light led is falsh twice and then gone. when i switch it back again it wont
turn on. can you help? now all the thress receivers are not showing their
led lights. are they defective?
cambridgekiwi: You are welcome - I actually tricked myself a few weekends back - my JR
module stopped working in my 9x (9303) - the receiver would bind, do the
rapid flashes - but then not lock up. It worked perfectly the last time I
used it in a different model. Took me a few days, but I finally had to give
myself a slap on the back of my head ... what's Corona's first
instruction... turn your transmitter on to PPM mode... Doh! SPCM doesn't
cambridgekiwi: Yes that's right, you can connect the power supply to any channel, so long
as the plug is around the right way, be very careful of this with the small
3 or 4 channel receivers. Basically the power supply rails inside the
receiver are all common, so it is a good idea not to short any of the other
terminal pins while the battery is connected too! As for wire size, that
depends on how much weight you want or need to carry - the bigger, heavier
or faster the model, the bigger you will likely need.
cambridgekiwi: Sorry, I never saw this question to answer it - my apologies. Follow the
proceedure again as per the video, the two flashes is the first stage of
binding, it could be that the button is pressed inside the reciever causing
it to try and bind all the time. The transmitter should only be turned on
first when you are binding, every other time, it should be receiver first -
hope this helps.
cambridgekiwi: I don't use the RP6D1's as they are not 2.4ghz receivers. Most probably you
have solved the problem by now, otherwise I would suggest downloading the
instructions for binding from the Corona site, and if you still have
issues, contact them via Skype. The address for help is on their website.
nachom0: Hello!!! I have a few questions, can you please reply these? 1- Can I put
the power connector in any channel of the receiver before the bind process
(or there is a dedicated channel?)? 2- what size of wire I need in order to
use 4 or 5 NiMh cells? 3- I have a flying win: Where can I connect the
power connector (from battery) and the servo connectors? Thank you very
Thomas Edmonds: Hi Nachom0, You can plug the battery to any of the eight channels that you
are not using (usually ch 8). The signal wire (orange or yellow) goes to
the top, the red (+) to the middle, and the black (-) to the bottom on the
cambridgekiwi: @arcdirect Hey, no worries... actually, I am really surpirzed how "watched"
this little video has been. I sell the Corona Gear in New Zealand, and I
made the vid as a helper for those who I sold the system to, since the
instructions in the box were a little difficult to follow. Pleased you have
got your system going, i'm in the process of converting over to their
latest FHSS system with Telemetry... still very new on the market, only
available in a few places at the moment.
davereap: thanks for that, I couldnt remember the sequence, ive a module in my
futaba..and the principle is exactly the same..
