Oh no! 1st build, 1st tx and rx combo, been looking forward to crashing a lot and getting the hang of unassisted flight, oh well, here comes another argument with the Mrs..!

I will resolder that dodgy looking signal wire and hope that's the problem after all...

It sounds like you probably have it set up correctly now. If you can post a dump from Betaflight then we can double check. If that looks good then the only thing is to try a different receiver or even try your receiver on another flight controller.

To add insult to inury, my PC failed to start this morning! So no more playing with beta flight for now... I did try a few more options on the tx today but still nothing. Gonna try to resolder the RX again, the connection looked OK but I had to half remove the FC to make sure, might as well disassemble and just do it again. Gonna have to go to my buddy's place to work though, moving house is a major pain in the proverbials! Thanks again for all your help I unseen!
Can't seem to add rep from my phone but +1 coming ur way as soon as!

Thanks Tom, I really hope you manage to get to the bottom of this.

Keep us posted!

Actually, giving me some rep from your phone works fine. Four times fine in fact! Big Grin

So I re-soldered the RX, connected again to betaflight and had the same issues - connection recognised on betaflight as serial connection (by chain link icon,) still no stick or switch inputs recognised. I tried changing to SBUS (hold RX bind button for 2 secs and change TX options ((output - PPM, Serial - SBUS)) looks like its bound, ie. RX blue led goes from flashing to solid... Still no joy. Huh

So tried again from the beginning - reset TX to factory defaults, went thru activating switches, re-setup iBUS etc. then tried to reinstall betaflight - omnibus and... uh oh FLAMES!! Oh  Poop

I just tried to take some more photos with the crappy camera on my phone, can't really see anything from those, gotta get my proper camera back from the in-laws...

just for reference, flames came from the black component by the led GND pad (lower middle left) and I haven't used those pads Dodgy


Oh well, better luck next time I guess...
