IT WORKS! I did what that video said and it still didn't work, then I figured out that it was mapped wrong - I changed it from the default AETR1234 to TAER1234 and everything works.
Thank you SO much guys!

Now get out there and thrash it. Let us know how it all goes!IT WORKS! I did what that video said and it still didn't work, then I figured out that it was mapped wrong - I changed it from the default AETR1234 to TAER1234 and everything works.
Thank you SO much guys!
In the beginning, it is likely that you are missing a lot, in the beginning, we don't know what we don't know. So lets start off with what exactly are you doing to bind the drone. The first step is to bind the TX to the RX, so exactly what are you doing, and what are the LED indications on the quad.I am new to FPV and new to the group. I am in the exact situation as eazy123 was. Bought the tinyhawk rtf, got qx7 for sim and to bind to tinyhawk. Unlike eazy123 though I have yet to succeed in even binding the drone. I have followed emax inst., tou tube vids, and read through and tried everything I saw I this thread to no avail. Could there be something I am missing? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Qx7 set to d8, in bind mode.In the beginning, it is likely that you are missing a lot, in the beginning, we don't know what we don't know.

Then you have to unplug the quad to finish the binding process.Press bind again on qx7 to stop bind mode
Thankyou for your input, I turned on qx7 and powered up tinyhawk and on quad red and blue lights blink. Turned off qx7 and still red and blue blink.Then you have to unplug the quad to finish the binding process.
Qx7 set to d8, in bind mode.
Hold bind button and power on quad.
Press bind again on qx7 to stop bind mode
-> Unplug quad
Once you plug it back in like normal it should show it's bound
A few tips.
Plug the quad in like normal and observe the lights, make sure they're different when you plug in holding the bind button. (There's a VTX button too, so make sure you have the right one.) Once it's bound, the quad lights will subtly change colors as you turn the controller on and off (I think one little red light turns green but it's been a while since I flew my Tinyhawk)
If turning the controller on and off changes the lights on the quad, you could be bound but not receiving inputs, and that's a different problem to address
Thank you for all the help, I would really like to get this thing going. I am in US but bought emax rtf bundle second hand off eBay. Works fine with original controller. Wondering if I should just reflash regardless or is there a way to see what firmware it has.Oh, one other thought...
We never asked if you are in North America, could it be possible you have an LBT version of TX instead of and FCC version?
If so you would need to reflash the FC with the proper target.
Ok, let us know what you think and what happens.
The quad only starts up solid red in sbus mode, I have tried that too but I will try these again. Right now it's set to frsky d I believe it's called.Ok @Dmann13830, lets try this, I don't have the S but have the original and a 2 (II), after re-reading the doc maybe we are doing this wrong.
Power up the quad (red LED should be solid?), then press and hold the bind button for a few seconds (red LED should now be flashing?), set TX to Bind (blue LED should now start flashing?) TX out of bind.
Alternate method, plug quad into Betaflight Configurator and go to CLI tab. If you haven't done it yet, do a "dump" and save to a file using the button in the bottom right of the window, this is info you will want to preserve about how the quad comes setup from the factory.
At the CLI prompt do a "bind_rx_spi" command, and then set TX to Bind mode. Then just disconnect quad from USB and take TX out of Bind mode and repower quad.
Let us know if this works or not, and if you need help with anything else, we all started exactly where you are and are very happy to help get another person going since that's how we got started.
Yes it should be set for serial rx in config and set to d instead of x for D8 mode, but you should be able to force a new bind from the button or the cli command. Seems like you are having trouble setting it to bind mode on the quad itself for some reason, everything sounds right except no getting to flashing light on quad.The quad only starts up solid red in sbus mode, I have tried that too but I will try these again. Right now it's set to frsky d I believe it's called.
Thanks again, I couldn't have done it without you! Learned alot in the process too.Since @rtkDarling had tried to help also, I thought I would let you guys know what happened with @Dmann13830. After going through everything with him soup to nuts, we determined that the QX7 was not actually working properly. In the end he re-flashed the QX7 Internal XJT module and it is now bound. Yay!
