Smile FSFLY Ti8 2.4Ghz DMSX 8 channel Radio

Hi everyone,
Ive recently got back into flying & been out of it for about 15yrs, so things have changed a bit to say the least......
I recently purchased this FSFLY Ti8 2.4Ghz DMSX 8 channel Radio ,my mate has a simlar one but made by ORX & its a 6 channel.
We set a plane up yesterday and things went all funny like.....motor running on & off by itself, servos over running to max turn and real weird type of behaviour from it.
We changed over to my mates ORX Radio and it was fine, his worked as it should.
So we swapped the AR6100 Rx out & put in the ORX one my mate had, and then it worked fine, so we thought ok its the Rx.
Today I turned it on to set things up properly & its started doin funny buggers again.
Has or does anybody know whats happening as im new to this 2.4ghz stuff & I thought its meant to be better!!!!!
Thanks Guys

Did you bind the receiver?
That kind of behavior usually means there is no received signal from the transmitter.

It may be you have a bad receiver.

Hope they take care of you.
Hard enough flying these things even with a good radio, but a bad one makes it terrible.

OK Banggood have always come good with me. Just send them a pic of the TX and RX and an explanation and they should come up with a solution. Tell them your technician mate says it is faulty. If you used Paypal they pay to return it.

Sometimes it doesn't take much to make a radio do strange things.
In 1972 I built a Heathkit 8ch RC radio system, I had my FCC 2nd class license by then so I knew what I was doing.
The radio preformed great for many years.
Heathkit received a bad bunch of batteries, and they would sometimes putout sort of a static signal along with the 9.6v, like the hash you might hear when an old AM radio was off channel. (like white noise)
That would cause the signal on the old AM type transmitter to carry the noise also.
I found what was happening by putting my radio on the lab equipment at my old school, the instructor let me test it with an expensive storage type oscilloscope they had.
I put new batteries in mine, and had no more static along with the battery voltage. End of problem.
The new radios use voltage regulators and much different designs so you should not have had that problem, but it did make servos jitter a little.

I agree that $15 or $20 credit is not customer service, it's almost like bending over so they can kick you.

Yeah they ended up coming back with $88 bucks back which was better than 20, Still! I have a radio I cant use unless I find someone that can fix them, I did put brand new batteries in it as I thought that could cause issues too
Iíll try & hunt someone down who fixes this sort of gear when we can go out....
