so you are running satellite ONLY successfully with an old DX7, did you bind your satellite via zyx-s through your DX7 or did you bind your DX7 and satellite with a full size reciever first?

What receiver setting are you selecting in the software to get the zyx-s and the satellite to talk with your DX7?

all im getting is solid lights on the zyx-s the second i plug in a battery, it never initalizes unless i hit the set button.

Ok so the DX7 does work on a satellite only, finally got it working!

what ended up working for me was to reset the model in my tx, bind the tx with a full dsm2 reciever and satellite, then hooked up the just the satellite as per the tarot diagram, had to use the set button to get a solid light, connected, went into setup, selected dsm2-1, went thru the rest of the setup and advanced setup, unplugged it, plugged it back in, it initalized, blinked 3 times and now I have a solid light and can connect and have full response from my heli!

Im not 100% sure but I tried this same method 100 times using the fbl.net software and it didnt work, finally figured out how to assign my usb port and used the tarot software and worked the first time. so keep that in mind.
