SOLVED !!
OK .... the Sat was bound (11ms DSMX) and unit functioning well as I was in the process of setting up my new iX12 to the Spirit. All was going fine , had Rescue , GeoLink functions operational , no problems.
I think it was when I changed the channel/function of one of the switches on the TX that I lost all control of the unit and have not been able to restart it. I've tried the obvious and cycled both TX and Spirit however all I'm seeing are all Led's flashing at a very fast rate at first that decreases in speed fairly quickly.

In obvious need of help and direction to sort out whatever has happened !
Thanks,
Van

Hello,

I am not sure which LEDs do you mean, but if for example Satellites are flashing fast too then the unit is just in the Binding mode.
This mean that there is a bind plug connected in the Spirit unit or that something that is connected there is behaving like that (for some reason).
So unplugging anything from SYS and ELE/PIT/AIL could help.

Transmitter or Spirit configuration should not play a role.

All leds are flashing. The Spirit the Sat the Geolink the BEC & the ESC all flash together in sequence with no Bind Plug inserted.
Like I said I was going fine with the setup & everything went crazy during the process after a successful Bind process. I was well into programming all the GeoLink functions when it went off line & started this behavior
The plug had been removed a long time before
All plugs removed from the outside 2 positions as you suggest

SOLVED !

Just discovered the flight pack had discharged to a point the BEC was unable to supply sufficient voltage!
Doh... had I really been running the system for that long , guess so !!

Fresh Pack & all good !!


It clicked when I realized the external BEC could be the only cause as it’s not controlled by anything else. It’s a Gryphon Polaris and sine I’ve determined that the flashlight was being caused by it being in a ‘warning mode’ hence all electronics were being effected !
