- How to fix problems when
binding with the RadioLink H6TP radio
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.
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
tip was donated by JEFFREY MUNDELL, for whom the thanks should go....
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.
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.
hope that this will help other pilots to bind their RadioLink
(and indeed other) radio successfully, every time.
