I tried several time but still the same..

Receiver connection :
CH1 : steering
CH2 : ESC
SSL : bing plug

Transmitter selection :
RF Mode : FH5
Response mode : SHR (with a SRT BH9027 servo)

Is there something I have missed or doing wrong ?

Thank you for your help.
You missed the last step. You still need to hit the bind button on the radio again to finalize the bind. Once done the receiver led will be solid.

The M17 foam arrived today and it is a pretty perfect fit. I used the top foam included with the case (removed the backing) and the bottom foam for the M17.

I might need to cut out a little bit of the radio shaped foam since the Vault's bottom is just plastic and I don't want the radio bouncing against the plastic.

Just received my radio and the ribbon connector from the wheel to the radio was broken. Does anyone know if the M12 ribbon is the same as the M17?

You need to remove the bind jumper to finish.

Thanks for letting us know. I "assumed" the recharging capability was in the radio and not the battery. None of the replacement batteries that I have seen mention this. Do you know if there is a place to purchase a Sanwa LP1-2500 (the actual replacement battery)?

I just upgraded from a DX3R and have 3-4 primary vehicles I'll be using. Is it worth splurging for the latest 491 receiver or is the 481 close enough performance wise? All vehicles are electric

With the price difference from the Futaba 7PK to the Sanwa M17 you can buy 2 extra receivers for the Sanwa M17.
