Compiling the Firmware
LEDs are present on most external MULTI-Modules and can be used to check the status of the module.
The basic functions of the LEDs are:
- indicates that the MULTI-Module is receiving power
- indicates the status of the MULTI-Module
On TMX5 modules the red LED patterns are reversed. (Also note that TMX5 modules are
not officially supported.

The firmware has detected that it is running on an MCU with less than 128KB of flash memory.
OpenTX will display the state of the MULTI-Module in the
line of the RF module section on the
In normal operation the Module Status will display the MULTI-Module firmware version and the Expected Channel Order.
Module Status with Firmware Version and Channel Order
If an auto-binding protocol is selected, and binding has not yet been initiated, the Module Status will display "Bind to load protocol".
Module Status waiting for Bind
When the module is binding, the Module Status will display the firmware version followed by "Binding".

No MULTI Telemetry
If the Module Status displays "No MULTI_TELEMETRY" or "No telemetry" there is a problem with the MULTI-Module
Module Status No MULTI Telemetry
In this situation, one of the following may be the cause:
The selected module is not installed - External is selected when Internal should be, or vice-versa
The wrong firmware is installed on the module - the wrong radio firmware, or telemetry inversion setting was used
The module is defective
A somewhat common fault is bad solder joints on the 5-pin module bay connector
There are two ways to get help:
RC Groups Forum
- for general 'how-to' questions or advice from other users
- for reporting bugs or serious issues
RC Groups is usually the best place to start as the forum is very active, with many experienced users who can provide help and answer questions.
To make it easier to provide help, please include the following information:
MULTI-Module type and the firmware version
Radio type, firmware, and firmware version
Using PPM or Serial
Description of what the LED on the MULTI-Module and the receiver/model are doing
Explanation of the behaviour and reproduction steps
