The OrangeRX DSMX/DSM2 compatible 2.4Ghz transmitter module offers a simple and convenient way to utilize your module-based Futaba compatible transmitter with DSMX/DSM2 compatible receivers. Simply replace your stock module with this and you are ready to bind to any DSMX/DSM2 compatible receiver.
Features: • 100% Futaba compatible (works with any Futaba compatible module-based transmitter) • 4 operating modes: DSM2 1024/22ms, DSM2 2048/11ms, DSMX 22ms, DSMX 11ms • Easy to access bind button • Range check mode
Specs: Compatibility: All Futaba 5 pin module-based transmitters 2.4Ghz protocol: DSMX/DSM2 Voltage input: 6~15VDC Power: 100mW Range: Full range system
Module uses a unique Global ID for binding. In case of binding issues with other branded receivers press the "Change ID" button on module to change the Module ID to another unique value reserved for that module (5 ID's assigned to each module).
There are over 4 billion unique ID's assigned to OrangeRx modules.

I purchased this along with 2 surface receivers 3 channel. I took HK at their word that it would fit any futaba 5 pin transmitter system. I received it today, placed it in my Futaba 3PK throwing away the old Spektrum original. Using an orange 3channel receiver I could not get it to operate. Seemed to indicate that it was binding but no movement from the buggys esc or steering servo.
What am i doing wrong or has HK duped me into thinking that it would work?
Hi, I've do the same ... Orange 3ch reciever works ONLY with surface transmitter's... I've this modul in my Futaba 3PK, and i've succesfully bind this with an older OrangeRx R615 DSM2, and this combination works great. This Rx is longer not available, and i've problem with binding with new OrangeRx R615X. it blink, but flas not solid. HK ???
Thank you for your information.
If I understand:
"Futaba Compatible" model can be plug into futaba transmitter and use protocoles DSMX/DSM2 for communating with Specktrum, "Taranis frsky", Turnigy... receptors.
"JR/Turnigy compatible" model can be plug into "Taranis frsky" transmitter and use protocoles DSMX/DSM2 for communating with Futaba, "Taranis frsky", Turnigy... receptors.
Probably this is not completely right.

I received my Futaba module this morning and I was very pleased that it came with a small set of user instructions. I plugged it into my Futaba F8UP [aka Field Force 8] and it fitted securely, more so than my FrSky module. I bound it to a Spektrum AR500 then a Spektrum AR6100 then an Orange 610 without a satellite and then finally an Orange 410. All these bound without a problem and all channels worked as expected, but of course not as labelled on the receivers due to the different channel sequence from the Futaba tx. When binding, the tx module somehow finds out if the receiver needs a DSMX or DSM2 signal, and if it should be 11ms or 22ms and then it starts up in that mode. When binding an led on the back of the tx module flashes a sequence to indicate what mode has been automatically selected. This was a bit confusing because when binding, each receiver caused a double flash of the light on the tx module, indicating DSMX at 22ms which I was initially pleased with as DSMX means true frequency hopping. However, when the tx was bound, my led was out, and the instructions say this indicates DSM2 22ms and not DSMX. There is a facilty to change the transmission mode, and suspecting that despite what the instructions say, the module might just be DSM2 only and the other modes might be just kidology, I did change to the other modes to see what would happen. None of the receivers woul

This is the missimng last part of my first review!!
There is a facility to change the transmission mode, and suspecting that despite what the instructions say, the module might just be DSM2 only and the other modes might be just kidology, I did change to the other modes to see what would happen. None of the receivers would work at all if I manually selected the wrong DSM mode and in the wrong mode the led on the tx module flashed a continuous 1, 2 or 3 flash sequence to indicate the selected mode. Once I manually set the module back to the correct DSM mode all returned to working correctly. Clearly the module will work in the 4 modes that it describes so it is not kidology after all.. I have not yet done any range checks but so far, it works.
In addition, there is an "ID" button on the module. Remember the fiasco with some Futaba tx's being sent out with the same code? Well the HK site says that there are 4 billion unique ID codes assigned to Orange tx modules, and each module is individually assigned 5 of these codes. By pressing a recessed and therefore relatively inaccessible button on the module you can change in the ID code that your module is using, although why you would want/need to do that is a mystery.
A range check will prove more about these modules but so far all seems to be well.

Well, just tested the module using my adapter for Futaba square trainer port. It works fine with no problems (no regulator needed) and binds to both DSM2 and DSMX receivers using the instructions provided in the manual. However, as noted by several people in the discussion board, it does not provide the channel mapping that is provided by the Spektrum module for Futaba radios SPMMSFUT720. This means that if you want to fly the ultra micro bind-n-fly models with brick type receivers you need a transmitter that has channel reassignment capabilities.

This module does not have the same channel assignement as the Spektrum DM8 module
This flaw makes it impossible for you to use an Eflite BNF model with a Futaba radio that does not provide channel reassignement.
To make it clear: you won't be able to use an MCPX, nano CPX, 130X or any other Eflite BNF heli/plane with you Futaba FF9 or T10.
Unless you can dial-insome weird mixes, or re-assign channels, this module can only be used with Spektrum/Orange full-size receivers, and in that case, you'd be better off with a Futaba receiver so you don't need a module in the first place...
In fact this module is just useless in most use-cases I can think of...
Other than this little problem, the quality is fine, the module fits right in the radio's slot, there's even a buzzer when you bind a model (better than the DM8 on this point) and you can change ID (something not found even on Spektrum TX) which is great...
Not a bad product at all, but it just misses the point, such a waste of potential...
Please HK, do make a new version of this product with channels assignement similar to the DM8...

This is a good Module works with all Air DSM2 and DSMX recivers,
The unit will flash 1,2or3 with what receiver is being used from DSM2 22ms through DSMX 11ms.
Not a good idea for the micro BNF as the channels 1,2,3 have to be assigned in the radio,witch takes some time.
