Hi Tilman,

As Eric said its not bound. And you only need to bind once.
The RADIO_CONTROL_LED is done in the generic part of radio_control, it is on when RC is ok, otherwise off.
Regarding the RC debug messages: the default_fixedwing_x have it, but in the FBW (FlyByWire) process. So you can just switch Fbw from default to debug in the settings/telemetry tab.

Cheers, Felix

Hi Tilman

The DX5e does work. I have tested with it in the past. Are you sure you have bound the receiver properly? The lights on the receiver should stop flashing when it is done. Also the led on the autopilot for signal does work with spectrum.
