The battery is not plugged in correctly; the red wire should be in the middle and black wire at the bottom, furthest away from the text. Hope this helps! :D

I just tried my older DX5e and it flashes all four LEDs while the trainer switch is held then does what yours does after it is released check the manual to see what it should do.
I should point out that my DX5e is a DSM2 transmitter where as your AR600 is a DSMX receiver which probably wouldn't bind anyway so check your DX5e transmitter is DSMX.
Also although the way you had the receiver plugged in in the photo above shouldn't have done any permanent damage to it if you had it the with the red at the bottom and the black in the middle you probably have. Also most receivers can't take the full two cell voltage so if those wires go directly to the battery you again may have damaged the receiver.

All the leds are supposed to flash to bind. The controller is already bound to this but I wanted to bind it to other receivers I have just purchased but doesn't seem to go into bind mode (transmitter)

Also you mention that we shouldn't connect the battery direct to receiver what should we use in between them

I think you'd buy a UBEC, or use ESCS with a BEC installed.

Assuming you're using a 2S LiPo which should be around 7.4V, this should be able to take the input and output it to 5V which the receiver should be able to handle.

Thank you.

This transmitter and recover were connecting when I connected it directly I just can't get it to go into bind mode to connect to anything else.

Also do I need this Bec for Rory's kit?

I should think so unless the Nanotwo has a BEC of its own. Either way I'd go for it as its only cheap and i wouldn't want to risk it burning anything out. I tend to run NiMHs myself, despite them being less powerful. And I wouldn't know too much about binding different receivers to one transmitter, I tend to go for cheaper less popular transmitter receiver systems often with a V Tail mixer separate as they're usually only configured for flight. My only advice would be to make sure they're compatible and your transmitter can handle having two receivers on one system.

The NanoTwo has an onboard BEC and onboard mixing. All you need to run the kit is a 2S battery and a DSM2 transmitter.
