Binding satellite receivers can be a tricky process, to find the combination of bind pulses and protocols that produces a good signal. This difficultly comes from the fact the protocol is not well documented, nor are the receivers. If possible, it is much easier to use the traditional bind procedure your transmitter recommends with the satellite attached to a standard receiver.

The JR DSM2 is fully compatible with the Spektrum DSM2, so the settings should be identical.
