Has anyone bound a DX5e to multiple receivers (for use one at a time, of course)? Trying to figure out if I can use a 2nd boat without the need to swap receivers from one to the other or to re-bind each time I go from boat to boat. The DX5e documentation is silent and I’ve gotten conflicting answers from folks on the RCUniverse forum. Thanks.
Turn on Tx and then Rx#1 and binf the Rx.
Turn off Rx #1 and turn on Rx#2 and bind Rx#2.
Cannot see why that should not work as there is nothing in the TX that changes for the Rx, so the Tx should not care which Rx is in use.
I think you are right (and 2 out of 3 on RCUniverse think so too). I’m still hoping to hear from someone who has actually done it before I fork out the cash for a 2nd receiver.
i have the dx5 i radio… and i love it…
as of this minute. I am running 4 boats off the 1 transmitter. 4 different recievers. and it works.
you just have to be carefull. and i dont know why this happend to me…
but after binding my first boat . i started the second. and it worked fine.
but i guess i did not turn off the second boat. because i had a problem binding the 3rd boat
i got it fixed. and it works great… no more lunging around 4 boats and 4 tranmitters… just the 1 trans…
Just as a sugestion, Look into the Spectrum 6i. you can program up to ten boats on the same transmitter.
I bought the dx5e and thought it would be good idea to bind the 2 boats to the same transmitter and it worked very well. But, as my fleet grew it turned out to be a better idea to go with the dx6i. With the 6i you can program each boat such as trimming servos, servo direction and much more.
At the present I have:
Fairwind III (set up to the DX5e)
Tug Boat (rescue boat for sailboats)
all set up
I figured I would just sell the 5e, but I kept it and set up 1 of my boats to it so I could introduce friends to RC Sailing.
