Hitec has two modes: scan and normal
In Scan Mode, both Receiver and transmitter scan the whole band (120 channels) for the best 20 channels. Useful if you use a 2.4 GHZ Wireless video transmitter to avoid using the frequency occupied by video Tx. Yes, in this mode, if you turn off Tx and back on, you have no lock. But this mode is intended only when you change location, more as a sniffer for busy channels to avoid them.
After this scan, you normally switch to normal mode, pun intended
because scan mode is more a binding mode than a regular usage mode, imo.
In Normal mode both Tx and Rx hop only the 20 channel that was previous choosen during the scan mode binding, so when you turn on/off again, they always select the same channel 20 channels, until next scan mode bindingfor this reason the reboot is much faster.
