How It Works

Binding is the simple process by which you program the receiver in a Bind-N-Fly airplane or heli to respond to a specific DSM2/DSMX aircraft transmitter. You only have to do this once. An aircraft will automatically connect with the transmitter it has been bound to until you bind it to a different DSM2/DSMX transmitter.

Binding takes just seconds and is so easy, just about anyone can do it regardless of their RC experience. The basics of the binding process are the same for all Bind-N-Fly aircraft:

  1. Power up the Bind-N-Fly airplane or heli in bind mode
  2. Power up your DSM2/DSMX aircraft transmitter in bind mode
  3. Wait several seconds for the bind process to complete

The only difference in the binding process between specific DSM2/DSMX transmitters and Bind-N-Fly aircraft is how you access bind mode for each.

For complete details on binding specific DSM2/DSMX transmitters to specific Bind-N-Fly aircraft visit the Aircraft section of this site and look for the "Binding Instructions" link next to each aircraft. If you'd like to learn more about how the Spektrum technology behind Bind-N-Fly works, visit
