FrSky Q X7 not binding with iFlight Nazgul5 V2 6S Drone

Hello everyone,

I'm fairly new to drones and I've purchased my first fpv drone - the iflight nazgul v2 from banggood.com with the FrSky R-XSR Receiver, and I've attempted to bind it to my FrSky Taranis QX7 radio.

For Internal RF I'm using XJT D16 mode, channels 1 - 16 and it will not bind. I've also updated my QX7's firmware to make sure I have the latest version: 2.3.12-otx.

I've noticed that after the radio is chirping, I've held the button down on the receiver, and plugged in the battery - both red and green lights activate on the receiver. I'll unplug the battery, stop the chirping, reconnect the battery and for a split second the green light on the receiver will blink then turn off and the red light begins to flash.

I've tried all that I can but being so new to the space I thought I'd reach out for some help. Since both lights are on when plugged in could this be an issue with my receiver not having matching firmware with the radio? I'm considering buying a new new FrSky R-XSR receiver from Amazon since mine came from Banggood and it might have different firmware.

I've attached a photo showing both lights on the receiver when plugged in trying to bind to my QX7. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You got it, the reciever needs to be on the same version as the transmitter. Download the firmware to your radio, plug in the reciever to your radio using the adapter that came with the Nazgul and update (easier said than done).

FrSky has two firmware streams. ACCST and ACCESS. Your radio being older likely had the ACCST firmware. The new R-XSR receivers are shipping with ACCESS which will not work with your radio if you are running ACCESS. I probably help 6-8 people every week to get through this mess and navigate the land mines that are FrSky firmwares. I can definitely help you with detailed instructions if you are up to the challenge. There are many steps required but none are terribly complicated.

Yes that would be great, do you have a guide you could share?
