Help!
MCPx bind problem with computer radio. Board broken ?

Hi !

I have a V1 mcpx for few years now, and have just recently bought a DX6i to replace the DX4e from the RTF kit.
Problem is that I can't get them to bind correctly.
I've tried to apply right rudder (as needed for V2 boards, but who knows...), from few meters away, with different timings... But no luck : heli still blinks, tx still beeps...
I also tried with an Orange T-six with which I am able to bind (1 try out of 3), but the binding is lost when the tx is switched off (switching on/off the heli with the t-six still on is ok, the heli find the binding directly).

I can still bind correctly to the DX4e...

Is it possible that the board is defective only for binding to computer radio ? If so then I have to buy a new board

DX6i you do not use rudder to bind . I have three V1's, and three V2'. Inset battery. Hold bind lever and turn on tx. Hold bind lever till s/plate moves and let go. Wait several seconds and blades will twitch. good to go. Holding stick was for DX4e./ DX5e .

That's what I thought... So my board must be broken in some way... I heard that V1 is better for BL mods than V2, but I can't find any V1 board to buy. I guess I'll have to spend 60EUR for a new V2 !

Megasmicros can fix that board for $25.00. Most times better than new. I had buddie from New Zealand have a few borads fixed and quite happy. They fixed a Nano CP-X board for me and its fine.
V1 board is less stable and better at 3 D. V2 board had improved gyros.

Ok, will think about getting the board fixed, but I'm in France, so 25$ + shipping both ways will most certainly cost the same as new v2 from my local store...
Thanks for the tip !
