    Receiver issues

    Ok guys i got the Max6 but i cant get my controller to bind to do anything.
    I try to bind it and the light just keeps flashing red. Then sometimes it will both go green but nothing happens.
    Any things to try im all ears.

    It might be the temp sensor. Take a look at this thread, Nimitzzz made a couple of short vids showing the flashing receiver light. https://forums.traxxas.com-receiver-problem

    Unplug everything out of the receiver, and then try. Sometimes, something like a servo, ESC, or whatever can load down a receiver. If you still can't bind, then I would try another receiver.

    Ok i got it to bind and have the green light with steering.

    Now i cant get the Max6 to calibrate.
    I get the flashing light and clicking and when i click set again to set neutral it just doesn't do anything.
