INFORMATION - How to fix problems when binding with the RadioLink H6TP radio

Binding the radio on our helicopters can sometimes be a bit of a black art, and I am sure many of us have had problems sometimes, and cannot work out why it will not bind successfully.

Well, the RadioLink H6TP radio is no different to any other radio really, but it does exhibit a couple of problems that stop it binding that are worth noting so that other people  do not have to struggle as much as I did.

This tip was donated by JEFFREY MUNDELL, for whom the thanks should go....

TIP 1 - If you are inside, or pretty close to anywhere where there may be a Wi-Fi wireless network, try moving away to a more open area and then try the bind operation.  Wi-Fi works on the same 2.4GHz Frequency that our helicopter radios work on, and it can therefore intefere with them.

TIP 2 - If you are using rechargeable NiCad batteries in your Tx, try putting some newly charged batteries in the Tx. The problem is that rechargeables only have a maximum rated voltage of 1.2 volts, whereas non rechargeable AA batteries give 1.5 volts.  This means that the Tx only has 4 * 1.2 = 4.8 volts available initially when using fully charged nicads, but the non rechargeables provide 4 * 1.5 = 6 volts.  Very often the voltage needed to successfully bind the Rx is just too low.

I hope that this will help other pilots to bind their RadioLink 
(and indeed other) radio successfully, every time.
