FrSky XM Plus receiver is one among the littlest receiver that was ever released and it only weighs 1.5g which is incredibly . This receiver has the littlest foot print of the FrSky receivers. it's light weight and tiny, hence it are often used anywhere there's a weight and space constraints. Tiny whoops and micro, mini quads are best suited applications of this receiver.

For it's to be this light weight and tiny, what was it sacrificed for? Yes, telemetry is sacrificed to realize this ultimate goal. But, dont worry, you'll still get the RSSI using one among the channels during this receiver. But still, the Smart port may be a room for improvement during this receiver.

During this article, We are getting to dive in to the binding and failsafe a part of this receiver, which are extremely important to the present receiver and to all or any the opposite receivers. So lets start

Binding

Binding is that the process of uniquely attributing a selected receiver to a transmitter or its module. A transmitter or its module are often sure to many receivers (but to not be used simultaneously). The FrSky XM plus receiver can only be sure to one transmitter or its module at a time.

Follow the below steps below to bind the receiver to the Transmitter or its module.

  1. Turn on the transmitter or the transmitter containing module and while holding the F/S button on the module (please read the manual of the module for instruction regarding switch positions).
  2. Then Release the button after it's turned on.
  3. The RED LED indicator on the Module will flash, which is indicating the transmitter is prepared to urge bind to the receiver.
  4. Then Connect the battery or power the FrSky XM plus receiver using the facility source and hold the F/S button on the receiver. The LED indicator on the receiver will flash, which is indicating the binding process is completed.
  5. Now close up both the transmitter or the module and therefore the receiver.
  6. Turn on the transmitter and connect the battery or power the receiver.
  7. The GREEN LED on the receiver which indicates the receiver is receiving commands from the transmitter. The receiver/transmitter module binding doesn't got to be repeated not unless one among the 2 is replaced.

Failsafe

Failsafe may be a useful feature within the receiver when all controls move to a preset position (Which you'll configure within the transmitter) whenever the control signal is lost for a period of your time . FrSky XM plus receiver supports failsafe function for all the channels.

Follow the below steps to line failsafe positions for every channel within the receiver:

  1. Bind the receiver first and switch on both the transmitter and therefore the receiver;
  2. Move the controls to the specified failsafe position for all channels;
  3. Press briefly the F/S button on the receiver (less than 1 second). The Green LED will flash twice, indicating the failsafe position has been set within the receiver.
  4. To disable the failsafe function, re-bind the receiver.

Failsafe is suggested to line when the system is firstly used, or receiver has been re-bound.

Follow the below steps to line failsafe.

Option-1: the way to set failsafe to a user-determined state on the FrSky XM Plus receiver on lost signal:

  1. Bind the receiver to the transmitter module first and switch on both the transmitter and therefore the receiver;
  2. Move the controls to desired failsafe position for all channels;
  3. Press the FIS button on the receiver (less than 1 second). The Green LED will flash twice, which is indicating the failsafe position is about within the receiver.

Option-2: the way to set failsafe for no pulses on the lost signal on XM+ FrSky receiver (needed for a few flight controllers):

  1. Turn off the transmitter, and power on the receiver, then press the F/S button on the receiver (less than 1 second).
  2. The Green LED will flash twice, which is indicating the failsafe position has been set within the receiver.

Note: If failsafe isn't set, failsafe default will hold the last position before the signal was lost. during this mode (Default), your model may fly away or cause serious injury.

Conclusion

Hope this text has helped some one to bind their FrSky XM plus receiver to the transmitter and to line the Importatn function, Failsafe. Failsafe should be set consistent with your requirement and forgetting this will even cause your model to fly away.
