Radian receiver crap out?

So I had this super nice (my longest) flight yet this afternoon as I'm finally getting pretty confident at flying the Radian glider (non-Pro).

I had a nice soft landing, but then I couldn't put it up again. Seemed that the AR500 receiver may have stopped working. That's just my hunch. No blinking light when I apply power, but the servos chatter for a second and the LED flickers quickly. During this testing, I've also unplugged the servo lines altogether, with no blinking light as to be expected when power is applied to the receiver unit. I've also tried going through the rebinding process, but it just ignores me. Meaning, no blinking LED's.

I suppose I should just order another receiver because it sounds likely and at least that would rule out other components (?). Funny how the flight went well, and then sudden failure.

Thanks for any thoughts/ideas.

No blinking could also mean no power, which means also check the ESC and battery. Do you have a voltmeter?

Just to follow-up on this, it was actually a receiver failure. Once replaced, all is well.
