I would, but i don't have the manual with me, and i never did this with that boat. Do you know how to do it? It would help a lot!

Ok, i figured out how to bind the boat and tx, but now the motor works and the steering doesn't. When i use the steering trim, the servo works fine, but nothing happens when i turn the steering. Does anybody know what is happening?
Thank you!

Strange. When you trim the servo works but doesn't work when you try to steer? I don't have an ft009 boat I wish I could hold the transmitter and see if it's something on there you can adjust. It could be something is off on the tx maybe too much trim or you have the channels plugged in back wards. Servo is typically channel 1 and motor is channel 2, try checking that

Make sure the servo leads are plugged in properly into the rx.

Did you get this issue solved? I'm having the same problem. I can't even get it to bind.

FT Boats will not work

FT series boats will not work out of the water. The boat has to be actually in the water for the circuit to be made to make it operate. Safety device.

I managed to bind by leaving the tx on, and plugging and unplugging about 10 times. You need to do this fast.
