When it does bind and the responses are correct all seems well, but if I power off the MV and the Tx and then power them on (Tx on first, wait 5 sec, then MV on) the MV goes into binding again.
Do I have a faulty Mini Vapor?
First off, I think you are mixing terms. Binding is only done once. Powering-up to fly is not called binding. It's called initialization. They are very different things, so it is important to keep the terms straight.
I'm flying with a Futaba 10CHP w/Spektrum DM8 module, and mine initializes normally. If your module-based rig works fine with other BNF aircraft, and if your MV battery is healthy & charged, there is most likely something wrong with your MV.
