Binding Instructions

Connecting Transmitter to Receiver

Connect the batteries to the Lake Reaper and have the transmitter next to the boat

At the front of the boat inside the battery compartment, there is a black box with the fuse holder on top. You will need to take the lid of the black box to get inside where the speed controller and receiver is sat inside. The receiver is the smaller of the 2 parts inside the box.


Step 1. Make sure both the boat and transmitter are turned off. Now using a match stick or small screw driver, press a hold down the set button on the receiver inside the boat and then switch the boat on while the button is still pressed down.


Once the boat is on, you can release this button and the status light on the receiver will be flashing orange. The receiver is now in 'bind' mode


Step 2. There is a similar set button on the bottom left of the face of the transmitter. Now do the same with this button, hold it down and turn the handset on, then relase the button. Once you have released the button, you will need to press it again but this time do not hold it down. (When pressing the button the second time, you will notice the green light above the button change to a yellow).


Once you have pressed the button and the light has changed, press the button for a 3rd time but do not release for 5-7 seconds.


Step 3. Binding should now be complete, you should now be able to control the boat using the handset. If binding was not succesfull, try these steps once more. Failing this please call us on 01865 848000 for more help.
