Hi guys, just wanted to ask others if they have experienced this or not.

Have a black et-733 and ive only used him 4 times now. Every time i go to turn the wireless receiver/remote on the batteries are flat. Now after the 1st time i just put it down to shitty manufacturer batteries but im starting to think maybe somethings up.

Anyone else herd or experienced this, also to state the obvious i am making sure ive turned it off after use. Then i probably go 2 weeks inbetween use and then press the power button and nothing.

Cheers

Ask fishfood about it. He had problems but found out how to stop it.
Roughly, and not sure which way around, but you need to turn one of them off first for 2 minutes, and then it stops sending, or looking for a signal. If they're not turned off in a certain order, one or the other keeps transmitting, or trying to receive, a signal.
I'll see if I can find out more about it.

Apparently this is the solution to your problem

Quote:
DO NOT TURN OFF the receiver until the connection has been made with the transmitter, or until 120 seconds have passed and the “---“ is no longer flashing. If you turn it off early, it remains in “search” mode even while appearing to be off, and the batteries will drain within two weeks. Waiting 120 seconds discontinues the “searching” mode whether connected or not.

To shut down, turn the transmitter off, the receiver will continue to look for the transmitter, wait 120 sec until the --- stops flashing then turn the receiver off.


Seems like a bit of a crappy design flaw, there's probably people out there going though boxes of batteries!

Yep maverick say its a feature not a problem :lol:
Turn off the sender first and when the receiver stops flashing you can turn it off
