If you are running KO, turn on radio, then car, the wait for it to bind.. fail, then try again, then walk far enough away from any other transmitters (possibly go outside) then try again. Eventually after numerous attempts it *might* bind.
I run Sanwa, so, turn either on first, race, then turn either off first again.
I often put my car down and check throttle steering, then turn off my tranny whilst I walk up on the stand (in case I knock the throttle etc) then turn my radio back on once I'm in position.
Since going to Sanwa I haven't had a single glitch, runaway or radio failure or interference in any way, and I have my aerial leads tied back and shoe goo'd to the side of the receiver case so no aerial tube either
2.4GHz receivers should simply go into failsafe mode if the signal is lost or turned off. SO it shouldn't matter what you do, unless you're running KO.
P.S. And yes, I did used to run a KO
