thatís a intelligent comment. I pay $530 for a radio thatís suppose to work with $400 worth of receivers and it doesnít want to work. So I should just buy $400 more worth of receivers to make it work right. Thanks for the help

Iíve rebound them they work fine they donít lose bind during operation. If I sit and turn radio off and buggy off and on they will eventually connect. When I turn the radio off and buggies off and go back and hour later or day later itís like they need to be rebound.

I donít know what to do this only happened after I added the second 481 receiver. Any suggestions ?
No idea tbh, i use a good bunch of old receivers (a couple of rx-451r and a rx-482) with my M17 and never had any issue so far.

Yes, more track/wheel time. Your brain isn't used to the M17 yet bc it's something different.

Bess I went from the KO to this M17 without any Bad Brain issues. I feel the m17 is just a little more responsive vs my ko.

Any chance of how you turn them off and on or on and off has a different effect?

it doesnt effect the 491 receiver. Iíve always turned the radio on first on every brand Iíve owned. Yeah it seems if I turn buggy on first and then radio there is more of a chance it connecting. Once they are connected there isnít any problems but I canít be fooling with this at races. I did a factory reset last night. It didnít seem to help anything. I donít know what else to do at this point. I contacted who I bought it from they contacted Sanwa but I think they are out for the week on a holiday.

Does anybody know if Sanwa is going to make a hardshell case for the M17? If they are, any idea when it will come out?

Any rumors of an antenna-less FH-5 receiver?

Pelican makes the most bombproof case. Choose the depth size to fit the steering wheel angle you are using. The case will outlast your radio and cost considerably less.

I have used the iM2100 case for my 4PX, and my son has one for his MTS. With plenty of room for spare receivers and Servos.

I had went to the store with the radios, and test fit them.

I guess we could start a thread on Radio cases as well, lol.

https://www.pelican.com/us/en/produc...protector/1400 For my normal travel case.

https://www.pelican.com/us/en/produc...protector/1450 For radio + additionl equipment

The liner system is TrekPack that I reused from my photo equipment. One day, Ill update the insert.


Here is the pic of the1400, if you use an extender or wheel module angle you will need the 1450 case.
