2.1 Bind procedure:

Turn on the transmitter, connect the battery to the receiver while pressing receiver’s F/S button. After the RED

LED is off and GREEN LED is solid, the binding process is completed and the receiver is operating normally.

2.2 Setting failsafe:

TF series receivers support failsafe function for all channels. Follow the steps below to set failsafe:
1) Bind the receiver first, and disable failsafe on the transmitter side;
2) Set all transmitter controls to the desired failsafe position;
3) Press briefly the F/S button of the receiver, the GREEN LED of the receiver will flash twice, indicating the failsafe

is set up successfully.
If you do not need the failsafe function any more, just re-bind the receiver to set default failsafe mode.

Warning: Some transmitter manufacturers use a failsafe method that can interfere with that used

by FrSky. Be sure to disable any transmitter failsafe settings before setting FrSky failsafe positions.

Unusual jitter may result otherwise.

then release. The red LED will flash fast in HS Mode and slowly in FS Mode.Repeat this to alternate modes.

Warning: HS Mode is only applied for high-speed digital servos. Other servos should select FS Mode, otherwise servos will get heat or

even burn out.
