Hi Andy
I work with electronics and am willing to assist. Also ex-REME, fixing electrics & electronics on tanks was my job.
Please post the pages from the manual. I will then tell you where I need photos of your set-up to help identify the fault.

When you bound the transmitter and receiver, did it say it bound at 11ms or 22ms ?

Do you only have the Module A plugged into the receiver ?

I can't find a 1080 receiver - did you mean a 8010 ?

Hi Andy,
I am not suggesting you open the modules.
I just need a wiring diagram to see how things should be connected amd then work out how the system is supposed to operate.
I can then give pointers where to look.
Mark
