How do I Bind a Spektrum Micro Receiver?

The Spektrum micro receiver is a device used for radio-controlled vehicles that communicates with a transmitter, or controller, such as the Spektrum DX series, to give specific control of your remote vehicle. In order for this communication to occur, the micro receiver needs to "bind" with the transmitter, allowing the two devices to be paired for proper control.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Spektrum Micro Receiver
  • Power source
  • Bind plug
  • Spektrum DSM2 Transmitter/Controller

  1. 1

    Make sure you have a DSM2 transmitter. To properly bind the Spectrum micro receiver you must have a transmitter that is compatible; this includes any of the Spektrum DX series transmitters.

  2. 2

    Insert your "bind" plug into the BATT/BIND pins on the Spektrum micro receiver. This port is usually located as the last port in the row.

  3. 3

    Turn on your receiver by plugging it into a power source, usually the electronic speed controller or ESC. You will notice that the light on the receiver flashes, letting you know that the receiver is in "bind" mode.

  4. 4

    Turn on your transmitter while holding down the Bind/Trainer switch or the like, depending on your device. After a few seconds the light on your receiver will become a solid colour indicating that you have effectively bound your Spektrum micro receiver to your compatible transmitter, and you can let go of the Bind/Trainer switch.

  5. 5

    Remove your "bind" plug from the BATT/BIND port on the micro receiver.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not forget to remove the "bind" plug when you are finished with the "binding" process. Not doing so will place your Spektrum micro receiver into "bind" mode each time you power it on.
