  Jason will u carry 2.4ghz receiver for Airtronics . pls carry them pls pls pls.
     
-Reply from Eric1180 (2285 points);
Jason doesn't make them Frsky does. You have to ask them. Also there isn't a big market for Airtronics. Futaba RX are very expensive so the market for a Cheaper alternative is huge. For every 1 person that use's Airtronics 15 use Futaba and Airtronics RX are a lot less then Futaba's RX. But every one deserves a inexpensive RX. It would be nice if one day regardless of Brand well all had a alternative.

-Reply from marclaplata (2 points);
works great. buy the the orangerx t6ex here and on ebay (user marclaplata1234) and it works perfect in two models.
-Reply from bobmaxiao (7 points);
Yes it works perfectly. Even though the price is not as low as a Jr/Spectrum replica, it still is a good choice.
-Reply from Ivan (2 points);
Hi, yes definitely. You can use it on any Futaba 2.4GHz FASST TX.
-Reply from Maite (8 points);
I use it in my futava t6ex. I´s happy with it

  Anyone know how to take out combined PPM ? Thanks Moti
     
-Reply from Homero (17 points);
ppm is FM modulation radio signal not 2.4ghz
-Reply from am3388 (21 points);
Don't think PPM signal is présent on 2.4Ghz receiver since transmission is numeric and PPM is analogic.
-Reply from Jean-Mi (27 points);
Some transmiters give PPM analog signal to the 2.4GHz Tx module. This module traduce PPM in 2.4GHz numeric signal and send it to whatever receiver wants to listen. The receiver traduce the 2.4GHz numeric signal in classic servo understandable signal (PWM ?).
You can't traduce back a 2.4GHz signal to PPM

  I m using a new T8FG Tx. The two RX's from HK seem to LINK ok and the servos work. I followed the manual in the Files folder here. But when I change to a different model they STILL WORK !!! ??? It doesnt seem to matter which model I select these two Rx's work just fine. This CAN NOT BE ! Please explain what am I doing wrong ? Thanx in advance Bob
     
-Reply from gustavo (3 points);
you have to change the configuration of the tx. The RX receives the signal in the same way but change the model memory function,
also pay attention to the speed of the system, now uses the Futaba FASST for the servos do not fail. I have 3 orange rx and work perfectly in a p51 mustang, a F4U Corsair and a coach, just change the model from the rx. good luck.
-Reply from Risktaker (12 points);
Hey Bob I have several of these too. The receiver is just receiving the transmitter signal. The receiver does not care which model you put it in or servos you polug into it. Each time you move the receiver you will need to reprogram your trim etc to fit that model. Otherwise your receiver is just following instructions from your tranmitter. NOW you need to check the SPEED and ANALOG settings. You do this by holding down the reset button with a pointed object for about 6 seconds. Then turn off yo
-Reply from AeroEscolaFly (88 points);
The feature you want belongs to JR/$pektrum and they call it as MODEL MATCH. Each model matches to just one specific RX (binded previously of course). FUTABA does not have this function.
-Reply from aJS32 (290 points);
The Rx is linked to the Tx. It does not matter which model you are selecting on your Tx, it will still be sending out a signal and Rx will be receiving it and react according to it. So, everything is as it supposed to be. Regards

hello,
i have the same problem,when i change to a other model it stil works,but i dont want that!!

  I just test the range off this Rx in same time off the Corona 14channel. He's really better, better range and less noise sensitive ! test with a Futaba T10 with TM10 module 100mw. On straight line : 1300mtr and more ( end off the straight road for the test) It's really a great value ! Fine for parkflyer to giant scale planes !! I buy more !
     
-Reply from Bobbiesworld (12 points);
I have 5 off these in total and they all work great. No problems so far. I'll keep buying them. :-) Enjoy

no they do not.
-Reply from HellyFlyer (1299 points);
No they do not take advantage of this feature as the error correciotn technology is Futaba FASST only

  i trided to jumper CH1 and CH2 signals together in order for the Rx work on CH9-14 with my 14 channel Tx. and it doesnt do anything. any idea how to fix this ?
     
-Reply from karim samra (120 points);
There is a new version of this reciever called TFR8-S. you will find details on how to use two of the TFR8-S or one of the TFR8 and one of the TRF8-S to become a 14 channel reciever in this link : http : // www . frsky-rc . com/ShowProducts.asp?id=51
-Reply from i3dm2 (71 points);
do you see "Sam's choice" under here ? it says that this same one from HobbyKing can work as a 14 channel Rx, so i assumed these were already the new version ?
-Reply from i3dm2 (71 points);
quote:

These receivers are great!
A little tip that most people wont know is that you can connect
two of these Rx's together to form a quasi-satellite system with
up to 14 Channels!
Take a look at the additonal files in the tab above for an image
and information on how to do this.
-Reply from karim samra (120 points);
The new TFR8-S is compatible with Futaba FASST 2.4GHz systems, including ground systems (such as 3PK, 4PK) and it is Firmware upgradable, it also has a hard case.

-Reply from glonline (8 points);
these are not "S" version. the question is if HK will sell t8fr-s rx.
-Reply from meanrc2 (1 points);
Have asked that question 5 times and they refuse to answer.
They advertise they are the "S" version but not? Maybe false advertising???????

All units in stock ar S version.
-Reply from HobbyKing_Admin (8912 points);
are* sorry.
-Reply from i3dm2 (71 points);
How do you know that ? i have 4 units from HK and none of them can work with CH9-14 as advised, so they must not be S version ?
-Reply from meanrc2 (1 points);
Anthony, How many of the S version do you have?? There are 20 In my area 2 received yesterday and none,none are the S version. I do have a S version that I receiver from a diferent vendor. The ones I received from HK are not but work fine
-Reply from i3dm2 (71 points);
Here is the real take from FRSky:

"Thank you for your e-mail. The FASST receiver HK is carrying is FrSky TFR8, which does not have parallel function, the one which has is TFR8-S, HK does not carry this item."
-Reply from mcddd (1 points);
Only the TFR8S is capable of the receiving ch 9 to 144. The TFR8 can't do this. The OrangeRx FASST receivers I got from HK have been the TFR8, not the TFR8S. Go to the FrSky website for more details.

Correct, but maybe, just maybe enough to cover mine.

  When switching from a Futaba 7ch receiver to an 8, I believe that I have to switch the transmitter to 8ch.
Will this receiver work with the trans in 7 ch mode or will I have to switch it to 8 even if I am only using 4 or 5 on the aircraft?
     
-Reply from skorp_jon (93 points);
It will work on 7 ch also. Read the review from Bruce. It works in 7 and multi mode. But if you want to switch from 7 to multi mode you have to rebind receiver. I believe because of a different protocol.
-Reply from philipp2 (33 points);
I re-read the review and I see that you are correct. It works with either 7 or 8 ch mode.
philipp2 (33 points)

  Everybody recommends disabling fail-safe on the transmitter, but my 9C only has fail-safe when using PCM mode. When flying on PPM, there doesn't appear to have any fail-safe. So, when using PPM mode, do I need to do anything? Or, do you use PCM mode and disable the fail-safe?
     
-Reply from grummangoose (29 points);
You are correct - faisafe is not available in PPM mode on the 9c. Switch the TX on then RX make sure the throttle stick is at the position you want failsafe to go to. Then press the bind button briefly and failsafe will be activated. If you want to turn off failsafe just rebind the RX. Hope that helps.

It normally takes few days for the Hong Kong Post to update their web. Mine was shipped on the 22nd but HKP page didn't show anything until the 25th or so.

I can understand that it might take 4 or 5 days to post, but I received a notice that mine had shipped on Oct 21. Seven days ago. ?????
-Reply from philipp2 (33 points);
No need for tracking. The receiver arrived in my mailbox today via USPS. Have not plugged it in yet.
-Reply from Pygar (326 points);
Same here, no tracking info one week after tracking number assigned, and no shipment notification via e-mail. I hope Rx's will materialize in mail - very soon.
-Reply from Pygar (326 points);
Now,(later on same day as no info) the HK Post tracking says: The item (RB*********HK) was posted on 28-Oct-2010. So it will definately materialize in mail...

  I jusr received my #2 & #3 receivers and they are both in cases. However, the Futaba plugs on the servos will not insert into the case. Everything works fine with the case removed as well as using a plug without the "Futaba" flange. I can make things work by either:
1. Cut the flange off of the servo plug or,
2. Relieve the case to allow the flange on the plug to clear.

I am leaning toward option No. 1 above.

Anybody else run into this?
     
-Reply from flying dude (40 points);
yep ! probably all of us !
remove the plastic cover, cut a slice in the cover for a larger entry, with a dremmel, put the cover back:all done !
merry xmas !
jacques
-Reply from chemie (1 points);
So this is supposed to replace a Futaba Rx but can not accept Futaba plugs? That is silly. I waited to order to get the case and they designed a case which can not take Futaba plugs...terrible and dumb.
-Reply from flying dude (40 points);
oh you are so right ! real obvious design mistake ! let's hope HK will ask the case producer for a modified case for the following delivery ! in the mean time.... dremmel baby !!!
-Reply from philipp2 (33 points);
I was expecting for slots to appear in the upper case for the Futaba compatibility - but - none.
Oh well, at least it's a case anyway.
-Reply from hungrysteve (120 points);
Have any of you guys tried to link 2 rx's to give 8-14 channels?,i.e are they the"s"version?
-Reply from philipp2 (33 points);
How do you know if one is the "S" model?
-Reply from kbrown (229 points);
It is done usually by removing the tab on the plug. I have done this to put Futaba servos into other gyro's and universal recievers like the castle creations Berg reciever. Just don't trim off so much that you get into the pin in the plug. I would sand off the tab.
-Reply from __gsky (115 points);
I do cut off the flange to fix the servo plug. Any how, it's clone and nice product... Cheers....
-Reply from Colt1873 (178 points);
Used jewelers files and just put notches in the OrangeRX case.
-Reply from flyboy1961 (1 points);
Yes,I have the same problem with my factory futaba servos,but the mini's I purchased from china seem ok. You do have to make sure you have them connected the right way!
-Reply from staffilano (8 points);
I cut off the flange and pay attention to the correct polarity
-Reply from alex from africa (26 points);
yes it is a problem from HK. I simply opened the case and cut slots with a dremel, 5 min fix and permanent
-Reply from Flybill (5 points);
I choose No. 1.
-Reply from Duncan (8 points);
no, my Rx has slots, but I would go option 1 with an exacto knife

You need to upgrade your Futaba transmitter with a 2.4ghz module.

  I just tested the samples today with the T6EX, binding was fast and all channels worked well. I was only flying a parkflyer so I couldnt test the range beyond 500mtrs without losing sight of the model (visibility in HK is terrible with the humidity).
I will report back after another few flights today.
     
-Reply from alouetteIII (1685 points);
This is great! Another victory for HKing and it's supporters to offer compatible RC products without the big-brand name sticker. My HK-JR clones work so well that I feel confident this one would have to pass the same acids tests at the King's office. It's a win-win situation because I just ordered a Futaba Tx based on this release from hobbyKing - why - because I was never going to go for a locked-in-system* until now. I prefer the freedom to choose my Rx's.
-Reply from flying dude (40 points);
Hi Jason5001
can you confirm it does work well with T6EX (for plane, range 300 to 500 meters approx) ?
I will buy several, that is a fantastic deal!

  Hi all: Could this RX be trusted with a 50cc gasser?
     
-Reply from Rowen (24 points);
Good as any I feel , try it in a elec d/f ,if it goes good there with no interference go for it , I did no probs . Not sure about the traks/bussbar on the pcb for power handling so use a power sharer or opto to get the high current round the rx . chers Row
-Reply from Doublsixes (15852 points);
Hi Row, I run all my gassers with voltage regulators because I use 2s lipo packs both for the RX and the CDI. I wonder if this Orange RX can handle the vibrations of a 50cc gas engine. Thanks for the info. 66
-Reply from Rowen (24 points);
It,s all surface mount tech so same as a fut board , these 24gig rec's all generate heat so don't wrap it in foam , I use 2 strips of sticky foam on one side and tie wrap it onto a board (not too tight) , this allows air to pass around and cool it and leaves access to the button and led .
-Reply from Doublsixes (15852 points);
I'll be getting 3 or 4 as soon as they become available. Been waiting for a long, long time but they never show as in stock. Thanks for the heads up regarding heat and how to keep the thing cool.

  Woo-hoo!,lots of stock!!,and I'm hoping these are the "S" version,soon find out!
     
-Reply from Garfield2412 (125 points);
can't imagine that stock! my backorder changed to reserved! doesn't matter if S version or not. you only need 6ch on helicopters :-) and on expensive helicopters or planes with more than 8ch i'll never put an cheap receiver into it.
-Reply from hungrysteve (120 points);
I fly mainly fast hotliners,the futaba,with it's Hi garfield!The problem for me is the Futaba rx.vert.conns,will not slide far down the fuselage.
These units fit due to the horiz.servo leads.
I have over 6 hours flying my $1,000 hotliner with one of these Fr-sky Rx's..utterly reliable,not a single noticeable glitch.
But I don't fly in crowded 2.4GHz environs,maybe then the Futaba is better...I don't know.
-Reply from Garfield2412 (125 points);
i believe in that. this receiver seems to work very perfect. but there is just a bad feeling of an cheap part in an expensive machine for me.. you know what i mean? :-)
-Reply from H-KING_SCOTT (5349 points);
Screws are cheap, glue is cheap too.

-Reply from Brad (5 points);
I have tested mine in several planes in a 2.4 signal rich environment and NEVER had any problems. I have flown it in a gee bee with a 1.80 saito which has a lot of vibration and it has never failed me. I have also put it in my trainer and flown it high enough to be a wee spec in the sky and have never had any issues at all! I am one of only a handful of fliers at my field that use Futaba and they are all ordering these receivers. Most of the guys at my field use $pektrum, hey, don't get me wrong, $pektrum receivers are great, especially the ar500, they make great urinal cakes! Long live Futaba, Orange RC and HobbyKing****!!
-Reply from hungrysteve (120 points);
Hi Garfield..Yes,I know what you mean...crash an expensive plane,for whatever reason,and certain people will think you're a wanker for using a "cheap" receiver....especially some of the old codgers at my flying field!!

  some people at the field tolled me that the AMA insurance will not cover an accident if i am using this RX due to the fact that it is not a FCC approved item. is this true?
     
-Reply from Colt1873 (178 points);
While I do not know if this is true, the FCC governs transmissions. As this item does not transmit, how is it under FCC jurisdiction? I will have to go dig a bit on that one myself.
-Reply from Mauricio D (170 points);
now that i am aware of this i checked the Hobby King GT-2 2.4Ghz Receiver 3Ch and it state that is CE * FCC cerified. But this one does not say it and it did not came with the CE or FCC decal on it.
-Reply from Colt1873 (178 points);
I have been looking at CFR 15 on RC equipment. So far all I can find is radiating equipment meaning the transmitter. Transmitters are very clearly in their control.
-Reply from Colt1873 (178 points);
My take on reading the CFR some more is it must not radiate and has to receive signals it doesn't want. I.e. no active signal rejection system. Since it does neither I can find no code prohibiting its use.
-Reply from Mauricio D (170 points);
colt check CRF 16.37
-Reply from Mauricio D (170 points);
sorry CRF 15.37
-Reply from Colt1873 (178 points);
Well now:(b) For receivers: Receivers subject to the regulations in this part that are manufactured or imported on or after June 23, 1999, shall comply with the regulations specified in this part.

The next question is this receiver subject to the regulation in the mentioned part. With everything I have read, I think not. But I certainly do not know.

What I think important is the transmitter has an FCC ID on it. The receiver does not radiate and requires nothing. It is getting confusing reading the FCC language trying to make certain compliance is maintained. Catch me at colt187355*yahoo**** to continue this discussion. Also I did find a lot of r/c transmitters failing to have proper FCC licensing and nothing mentioned about receivers.

-Reply from Colt1873 (178 points);
I just reread CFR 15.37 and the receivers it is refering to are discussed further down in the document. Specifically scanners that are no longer allowed to pick up cell phone calls. Therefore it is my belief that an FCC license on the receiver is not required. The HK auto free speach nazi takes out both the ampersand and the dotcom from email addresses.
-Reply from Mauricio D (170 points);
Hey Colt i asked AMA using their online questions link and this is what they had to say about RX with no FCC decals" Dear Mauricio,

Thank you for your inquiry.

All equipment used needs to be FCC certified. This is a federal law. The responsibility of confirming the equipment is certified is up to the owner/user of that equipment.

Tony Stillman, AMA's Flying Site Assistance Coordinator, is currently working on an article that will assist individuals on how to check equipment for a FCC sticker and/or how to look up the information on the FCC website. This should be helpful and make things easier for members who are unsure where to even start the process.

There is an exclusion in the current liability policy for “[…]'Bodily injury” or “property damage” arising from the use of equipment that has been ruled obsolete by the FCC.” Since the exclusion does not specifically address non-certified equipment, the policy may respond if a claim was made, but you should not rely on this. Final decision on coverage and paid damages is determined by a Third Party Administrator based upon the details of the incident and terms and conditions of the appropriate policy.

Best regards,

Ilona Maine

-Reply from Colt1873 (178 points);
I found a class 1 FCC licensed individual with a radar endorsement. What he stated was if it radiates (i.e. transmitter) it must be FCC licensed. A receiver is not required to have a license. He also happens to be our rc club president. I am guessing he knows.
-Reply from kbrown (229 points);
Look, everyone thinks they know law. Some lawers don't! This a question that should be directed to the AMA. Let them tell you in writing and then you show it to the guys at the field.
-Reply from ray4flying (242 points);
Wow this is an actual discussion of important subject matter! I agree that the FCC is involved in transmissions and not receivers. MauricioD, I think people at your field support Futaba or JR agenda of high prices at our expense.
-Reply from Mauricio D (170 points);
the RX is CE certified so if it is good in Europe I don't see a problem with it in USA. What i can really tell you is that this RX works very good and i have had no glitches so far, i fly confident now after seven months of using the FRSKY systems i highly recommend it

-Reply from zforce (10 points);
I don't know about the AMA, but here in Australia, the MAAA have banned them as well. We cannot fly them at any field due to no FCC ID. On the other hand, the orange receivers are made by frsky, and they do have an FCC ID. That might warrant some investigation if you want to push the issue.
-Reply from Mauricio D (170 points);
well if frsky makes it i wonder why it is not FCC ID.?
-Reply from billmay (12 points);
I have emails from FrSky confirming that the OrangeRx FASST rx is the same as their TFR8 rx. I also have emails from FrSky confirming that their TFR8 rx is FCC certified for use in the US. So I am personally satisfied that the OrangeRx FASST meets both FCC and AMA requirements. You may do as you wish.

  Wow. This is great.

Futaba users will greatly benefit from such a rx as it is really cheap comparable to original one.

For those of us with negative commments, i really dont think you should shop here. Go and pay 5x more for the original since price is not an issue for you. And please dont ask for the company name manfacturing this unless you want to shut it down.


I am sure the product will be of reasonable standard. I will get one because i find it silly to put a 100 rx on cheapo foam plane that i am doing crazy stunts on which can easily result in a crash.
     
-Reply from p3tras (246 points);
Agreed :)
-Reply from silcom (17 points);
Hi Action, I dont know why I couldnt have negative opinion. Are you paid by Hobbyking and doing some commercial here or what? Have you personally tested this fake futaba receiver? Because based on your comments I dont think so. So please buy and test this product first and then come here and share your experience. By my opinion - receiver is one of most crucial part of RC model and its worth the extra money from branded producer. It is safe for flying and may prevent crash of model or even harm somebody. With regards!
-Reply from othmar (75 points);
@silcom. A receiver from a branded producer does not mean that there won't be a failure ever. View some youtube videos and guess how many crashes are due to branded receiver.
-Reply from AcTion (123 points);
Hi silcom, I said no negative opinions . Not negative reviews. This is a discussion section. Not review section.

Serious dude, do you think this product is great for the price you are paying and if it performs similarly to the original, then all anyone can say is wow.... Unless of course, you are the owner of futaba.... ha ha...

My opinion is that Futaba got us all locked in to their product at too high a price margin and they refused to budge even when there are cheaper alternatives in the market for so long. Problem is that they know we all have to change whole system , sell tx , buy new tx, module etc if we ever want to change to those cheaper alternatives. And so, can you fault me for being glad that someone is coming to knock their price down or provide us with right solution which is to buy a cheaper rx than the original.
-Reply from Eric1180 (2285 points);
AcTion has a eagle as his picture how can you argue with that? GO Action! People will always try to reason for excessive spending. Have you see the car commercial. With all of the rich people that are doing the same. "It's reproduces frequencies only dog's can hear"
-Reply from Spyro (451 points);
Silcom, I myself is a futaba fun. I own 3 of the Futaba FASST radios. My opinion is, FUTABA IS WAY OVER PRICED. I can get a Blueray player for $99 sale price, which has got way more internal parts and hand work to finish one unit, compared to $100 futaba 9GRAM receiver that is mostly machine/electronically produced, and with less internal parts. Also as someone had mentioned, brand name does not mean better reliability.
Let's try this product and LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER...
TowerHobbies.com just dropped the price on the Fataba 617FS as of yesterday - $89.
Looks like Fataba has been going hobbyking.com too...

  Are the two antenna on some kind of pivoting connectors so they can be positioned properly? If so, isn't this conducive to a possible intermittant or faulty antenna signal?
     
-Reply from Jabird (286 points);
I guess in extreme circumstances it could. but the actual antenna is held tight inside with spring pins. so, no worries..
-Reply from jbestell (60 points);
Those are mini-coax connectors - they rely on a connection method close to that od snaps on a jacket. I'd consider them fairly robust. That being said any Rx is prone to antenna failure if it is mounted in a place where the wires are not secure and can move around.
-Reply from H-KING_SCOTT (5349 points);
They are mini coax and movable becase we're still working on the case design. In 2 months we will have a plastic case available for this with 90degree antenna locations.
Sorry case is taking so long, plastic mould making is a slow process.
-Reply from H-KING_SCOTT (5349 points);
The case will be available seperately for $1.50
-Reply from Luong Pu (39 points);
The two antennas shoude form as a V shape or 60 to 90 degrees, spread spectrum means cover from lo end to hi end of the band it spread, one antenna recept lo the other work well with hi, so don't make it close split it atless V (fat big butt V :) ) shape.
-Reply from tomfrank (30 points);
Thanks for the info on the antennae connections. Personally, I don't mind the shrink-wrapped RX in lieu of hard plastic case, but having the case available as an option should make everyone happy.

Any chance you'll come out with a 4CH, lighter
, less expensive version for planes that don't need more than 4 channels?
-Reply from Eric1180 (2285 points);
I am sure they eventually will. I like the Heat shrink also. Some of the Rx i have in a plastic case rattle around and i don't like that. They are a lot harder to isolate from vibration

  Got three recievers last week.. I first bind it to my slow stick,then one on my 450 T-rex..On the Slow stick it buzz and shatter for awhile.Then the rudder seem a bit slow on the return...I can live with that...The T-rex 450 it shatters and the servos seem it has the shivers,not good for flying in that conditions..The third one I used it on my 4 stroke plane with 6 servos no problem...It's it because of my speed control doing this problem ????

IF you use a Receiver battery, it will be more simple to bind, Power on your 6EX, use a pincer to press the small button on the receiver, then connect the battery to the receiver, instantly the receiver light will become a green stable light. BINGO.

-Reply from Motorrad (12 points);
It works very good, just be sure to set the type of signal if you use analog servos. The default is high speed, suitable for digital servos. I had to change to normal speed for my Turnigy 1440 servo otherwise they were unusable, buzzing and not moving almost at all. The guidelines appear in the manual of the product.

-Reply from Pushrod (592 points);
Just been curious.What would you want to do that for.
-Reply from tushev (54 points);
Good question, since I fly FPV I want to monitor the RSSI voltage(telemetry)via RSSI input on my OSD. Some of the new receivers like FrSky D8R 2.4G and all UHF Rx already have one RSSI out installed. Some others can be modified by locating the RSSI pin on the board, guys did that already with the Genuine Futaba R617FS Fasst Rx.
-Reply from Marinho (137 points);
It is not to easy to have the RSSI from this RX. The chip ML2724 has this information on pin 28, but you will need some electronic skills and tools for get the signal out from there. The ML2724 datasheet shows that the signal varies from 75mV (no Signal) to 1.9V (-10dBm), but it is better you check this range at your own receiver.
-Reply from Frskyrc (14 points);

I think they are better than the Corona.

I meant the DSSS Corona Rx, Thanks anyways, I am now assured that I can use them with no doubt. Many thanks, Shay
-Reply from Harry (56 points);
Sorry, I do have a load of the Corona and have used them with both my Futaba 9C and 10 and they work ok. Originally lost a plane or two because the nut on the back of the module that holds the jack in the case had backed out. Although it felt like you had screwed the antenna on and it was tight there was not a good connection from the center pin in the jack to the plug in the antenna. I must say the range even without the antenna was great. Just be careful before you fly exercise the surfaces a few times and wait a minute or so. If you had a false lock up the controls will actually stops working, this happens a lot. Also watch the controls like the elevator, if you give it full up and it moves there but with a jerky motion, just shut it all off and let them re-lock again, that usually solves the problem. I have flown the 8 channel receivers in my big YAK with a DA-50 with no problem. Hope this helps you. Harry

  How do I disable failsafe on my 10CAG?
     
-Reply from grummangoose (29 points);
There seems to be 2 failsafe functions in the 10CAG, page 50 of the manual explains how to turn on/off. If you do not have the manual at hand it can be downloaded (below). Personally I prefer to read the manuals on my computer to the supplied paper ones.

Yes. I've been flying four of the OrangeRx FASST 8 channel receivers with a 12FG for several months with zero problems. The 14MZ and the 12FG both use the TM-14 FASST module, so it will work. You will need to set your FASST mode to Multi. You will also need to disable the failsafe on all of the channels that are currently setup for failsafe. Failsafe on the OrangeRx FASST is set from the receiver itself.

My answer about disabling the failsafe in the transmitter only applies to the OrangeRx FASST 8 channel receiver. If you are running a Futaba brand FASST receiver, you will need to setup the failsafe in the transmitter.

  No one has asked about Fail Safe's. All of the Futaba FASST Rx have Fail Safe on them what about these. If these are truly good nock offs then they should also have full Fail Safe function. If they do i might get 2. I really don't need the fail safe but if it has it, then that tells me they are pretty good copies and i have nothing to worry about.

  I find it shameful the way to sell. I am a seller, I have 40 years and took this job over 20 years, and I've never seen so much apathy in the customer service if you call, they just tell you what it says on the information about the product, then, why call ?. I've been waiting over 2 months Turnigy receiver, which still do not have in stock, and now it seems that I have the same path with this unit Orange. If you do not have the goods, not sold. They have no right to be playing with my money as long as you want without giving me anything in return. Embarrassing, no other word, they sell the bear's skin before the hunt. This company is losing the seriousness.
     
-Reply from pmille (25 points);
I'm afraid it's a Chinese culture issue. If something happens and they can't deliver as expected they are ashamed and go silent instead of communicating correctly about the issue. It would be great for them if they would learn to communicate better, because a lot of western customers are not used to this silent treatment, and WILL turn away. Yes, some customers will still scream when given a reasonable explication for a delay but most will accept it.

I for one, know about the difficult logistics of dealing with a huge surge in demand for a brand new product in short supply. The backlog for this receiver was over 4000* it will take a while to process even if the shipment has arrived on 15/10.

Just as an anecdote with a totally unrelated Chinese company: this week an order arrived that was supposedly in stock when I ordered it shight unseen in June, 4 months ago. Luckily it turned out to be of great quality in the end, and I was happy not having cancelled.

A guideline: don't order an item in backorder or low stock if you need it urgently.

A profitable business can cope with many inefficent practices,it really depends on the desire of the owner to establish best trading

Well, that's unfair. What we are complaining it's not the wait in itself but the fact that it proved longer than advised from the seller (ETA was moved foward 4 times) and thus unreliable. Reducing this to 'if you do not want to wait please don't backorder' it's just too simple to correctly appraise the real situation.

  Even though I have no interest in this RX as only I use JR/$pektrum, However I do like the mini-coax connectors as they can be replaced easily (thats if they could bought seperately) The $pektrum antennea's always need a plastic tube or dab of hot glue or silastic(sp) on them near the case to stop them breaking off. I like the idea the optional hard plastic case. Does the RX actually come with clear heat shrink, since the Black '$pektrum' did not, even though the picture shows heat shrink on it. -B!

  I have several of those, and use them with no problem till yesterday. I plugged in new servos Hitec HS-81 (bought from this very website), and they jittered like nuts, and got super hot in not even a minute. I thought the servos were the problem, but then I tried another receiver (actual Futaba receiver) and no problem... I plugged in two other servo (digital ino-lab) into the orange receiver, and they worked fine, but the HS81 were still going crazy. I am a bit puzzled. Is there anything different with this receiver that would prevent certain servo from working properly? Maybe I should mention that the system is powered with a 5V dedicated BEC. Any advice would help... Thanks
     
-Reply from Jabird (286 points);
Make sure your failsafe is disabled on your transmitter. Also make sure your not in high speed mode on the receiver. Correct these 2 things and you will be good to go.
-Reply from Turnale (18 points);
It was indeed the FS/HS setting! I didn't even know about this functionality. As I found out in the manual (here, under the files tab), to switch from FS ('slow' mode, 14ms latency) to HS (High speed, 7ms latency), turn off the transmitter, turn on the receiver, push the setting button for 6s, and release. Fast red pulse indicates HS, and slow red pulse, FS. Thanks a ton!

I think that a 2 cell LiPo with a full charge would be the most that I would trust for voltage, as most of the electronic components that I have worked with have only a nine volt max voltage.

-Reply from Owen (7 points);
you can use 9.8V,but don't recommand using for long time

I would worry more about what the servo's can handle. The voltage isn't regulated by the RX and the full 9.8v will be passed to the servos.

Hi. I fly on Futaba T8FG Transmitter. OrangeRx it is established on TAROT-450PRO. Gyro it is included in 5 channel and rudder in 4 channel. Gyro ALIGN GP750 and servo ALIGN DS-520. All perfectly works.

It will not link to my Futaba 6EX transmitter.
-Reply from alex (126 points);
It is your binding problem and that is why you think i can't work. I am using this RX as well as 617FS, both bind and work similarly. IF you use a Receiver battery, it will be more simple to bind, Power on your 6EX, use a pincer to press the small button on the receiver, then connect the battery to the receiver, instantly the receiver light will become a green stable light. BINGO.

I use this receiver with Futaba GY 520 Gyro. Work without problems.
-Reply from kallina (10 points);
I have everything working, try to switch the mode on the receiver. With bindings, if the button briefly then 7 ms (HS), is released in 6 seconds, 22ms (FS). Verified easily by high-speed mode analog serfs "buzz" at zero.

  I see that there are so many people complaining over the waiting time. I've also been waiting some weeks for the receiver. But I have a standing offer to cancel my order and get a full refund whenever I want. I just can’t support all the negative and harsh criticism of HC. After all we have ordered a back ordered product with an ETA (estimated time to arrival).

  Since these RX's are 8 channel, are they Multi-FASST or are they switchable between Multi and standard FASST? It is my understanding that FASST was for 7 channels and less. Any more channels had to be Multi-FASST.

Fasst is the name Futaba use for Futaba 2.4ghz stuff. Where you might be confused is Futaba now make a 618 receiver (8Ch) where the first 6 channel can be switched to a Faster response rate expecially for digital servos. I suspect the one above is like the previous model with standard output across all chanels.

How about making a 4ch FASST 2.4Ghz?
     
Dave (56 points)

  Firstly, I must say this is a great Rx and works brilliantly with my 14MZ. However, when the RX came I connected it up and bound it and all appeared to work fine, but after about 10 minutes of setting up the model, two of the (analogue) servos burned out. I checked the Rx HS/LS setting and found it had been delivered in the HS mode. After resetting to LS mode, it now works great. To check HS/LS mode, power up Rx with Tx off. The LED flashes fast if in HS, slow in LS. To switch between, press and hold the bind button for 6 seconds. On release you will see the mode change. You want LS for analogue servos, HS for digitals.

  Good news today! Finally my order changed the status to "Processing". So, I will have the opportunity to test this receiver on my planes.
     
-Reply from Marinho (137 points);
did a range test with TX FUTABA 12FGA at mode FASST MULT. I put 2 Orange RXs and 1 Futaba R6014FS side by side, all fixed at a wood base at 2m from floor and all antenas on the same position inside plastic straws. Reducing the power of the TX for Range Test, one of the Orange RX stopped to work after more than 50m and the other stopped to work exactly at same point of the R6014FS ( /- 100m). So BOTH RX exceeded the expectations and needs of range test. Detail, the antennas were polarized at same direction, I mean, on the RX one antenna vertical and other horizontal, the TX antenna horizontal, using TX vertical, the result were pratically the same.

HERE'S A VIDEO OF WHAT I RECEIVED. Glad did some over 2 hours of bench testing and on one of the planes before putting it to a flight. This receiver will not be used for flying. I burnt one HS-65HB during the test. Over heated another one. Many other servos were put into test. Others survived...

Where channel 1 is for rudder * no alerion on the slow stick, channel 2 for elevator,and 3 for the power and speed control...
-Reply from Oh tae hwan (70 points);
Now the problem solved..
problem is Fail safe setting on my 12Z cause ch1~3 periodic movement
And set the receiver HS mode with analog servo.^^*

Newly manual on Frsky hopme page tell this..
So Now it work very well
Set receiver HS mode and No Fail safe set on TX
My Plane has 6 Digital servo.. work fine..

ANd Set receiver FS mode, No Fail safe set on TX
work good ananlog servo connect Ch1 ~8..

I would doubt it, as it is comparable to Futabas R617FS, and that isn't compatible with your radio. Hopefully they (Orange) release a 3 channel version for 3PK, 3PM, 3VCS and so forth.

  How can I disable the failsafe on 10CG? What is the procedure?
     
-Reply from viejoperro (17 points);
Hello jorgovanska, enter the basic menu, select F/S, and look the data, if it is in NOR, (normal), when the transmiter and or receiver lost signal the servo will stay in last commanded position. If you set a pcnt of the travell of the servo, that is the position wich will the servo go when losing signal. Greetings
-Reply from jorgovanska (6 points);
So if I set NOR, does that mean that is disabled? I know everything what you describe but don't know what has to be set for the channels.
Why Rx loosing FS setup on powerdown? I think that RX have problem.
-Reply from viejoperro (17 points);
Yes, in normal, the servo will freeze in the last position when it lost signal, is not like F/S off, since without this feature some servo could jitter when signal is lost. RX should not lose FS when power of. It should freeze.
-Reply from jorgovanska (6 points);
So it has to push servo in some predefined position when I power-down TX, like genuine Futaba RX. How your FS working?
-Reply from viejoperro (17 points);
Right, unless set some % of FS, in wich the ser will go to the setted position when signal is lost. Actually I have all my models in NOR, since I never have experience a signal lost or interuption in my flights with this radio. Even with the Orange receiver, but in this case I´m still testing reception v/s distance
-Reply from viejoperro (17 points);
Are you having problems with FS loosing setting in Orange RX when power down??
-Reply from jorgovanska (6 points);
Yes. ???

Ok, thanks to you, it seems there is a bug on the RX programing, and you have to up date the software of the RX to fix it.
-Reply from Bob4432 (34 points);
if you have fs enabled on your radio, then it wipes the fs from the rx. disable the tx fs - in my 6ex it was a matter of going to the failsafe menu and moving the option from a percentage to the 'nor' position (which in the 6ex is like reversing a servo - just in the f/s section - very simple) which turns off the tx fs. at that time, make sure both the rx and tx are on and then set up the tx up in a manner that you would want the fs to be in in the case of radio loss - this can be a combinatio

  Hello just a word of caution, on my 10CAP I had to disable the failsafe on the TX for the throttle or every now and then it would twitch even with the throttle lock on, once disabled RX works like a dream! so make sure to disable all TX failsafe to NOR.

THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE OF THE RX.

Happy flying :)

  Hello All
How can you tell the difference between the versions, and what are the differences between the versions. Thanks kindly for any insight.
     
-Reply from kbrown (229 points);
I don't understand the question. 2 versions? Do you mean the difference between the Orange recievers, or between the Futaba compatiblity.
Hobby King sell Orange reciever for Futaba and for JR. The also have recievers in a orange hard case and ones in shrink wrap (just a case style).
Futaba makes a 7 channel and lower and an 8 channel and an higher system. This reciever is for the 8 channel and higher radios. Just as jr/Spect has DSM1 and DSM2 compatibility systems.

Hey guys, need some advice/help here, during one of my recent crash, one of the antenna from my orange FASST rx came out,...cant find it in the field,...so I am left with one antenna,...whats the effect of this? Shorter range? Too bad they only sell the case and not the replacement antenna...help anyone?
-Reply from Bob (1 points);
Hi Shadow00.
The antenna are replaceable I have 1 longer one fitted to four of these.
If the wire has pulled off the gold connector will still be on the socket they come upwards to disconnect.
google FAAST 2.4ghz antenna you will find it
Or google the cable and cut it in two copying the end.
Its called IPX or U.FL.
Here is one link.

  Why did you award points to Colt1873 for not answering my question. I can see that it appears to be identical, and he admitted he didn't know the difference. I still would like to know the difference between orng8f and tfr8s RX's
     
-Reply from Thomas (5 points);
The orng8f is an 8 channel receiver that will work with all Futaba FASST 2.4Ghz transmitters and provide up to 8 receiver channels depending on the transmitter. The tfr8s RX's are also 8 channel receivers just as the orng8f but also have the capability to be in pairs (2 tfr8s' tied together as a satellite system) to provide up to 14 channels which can be used with the Futaba FASST 2.4Ghz 14 channel transmitter to provide a 14 channel receiver.

Only the TFR8S is capable of the receiving ch 9 to 144. The TFR8 can't do this. The OrangeRx FASST receivers I got from HK have been the TFR8, not the TFR8S. Go to the FrSky website for more details.

-Reply from Aefer (347 points);
Orange only make 8 ch. You can try the Frsky and Corona Receivers if you want smaller 4 and 6ch Rx's. Yes this can be used on large models. I have never seen one fail yet

  Do you bind using the hole on top of the receiver? any suggestions on binding... thanks...
     
-Reply from Aefer (347 points);
Yes you do. Turn on the Transmitter, ensure Failsafe is on Normal mode, press and hold the button on the receiver, then turn on power to the receiver. the LED will flash several times, then remain solid green when bound

  Will this receiver works with a Futaba 3PM-X 2.4G car transmitter?
     
-Reply from cardude (94 points);
not likely
-Reply from flowrider (19 points);
Why not? The 3PM-X uses the same FASST technology like all the Futaba "flying transmitters"? So if the receiver could handle 6 channels instead of 8, why shouldn't it also handle 3 channels instead of 8?
-Reply from Voodoo-cz (215 points);
2 Philipp: Maybe because all Futaba 3 and 4 channel car systems are listed as incompatible with 6 or more channel RX's and vice versa.

  Will this reicever works with a 3-PM X, 3PK or 4PK radio?
     
-Reply from Tieto (148 points);
No, 99% sure it won't. (As it is 99% comparable to Futaba R617FS - and that won't work with 3PM, 3PK or 4PK radio.) You probably have to go the expensive way around Futaba 603FS/FF

-Reply from Marthijn (60 points);
turn on the transmitter, then add some power to the receiver and then a led goes on. hold the bind button for a few seconds and wait untill the led is changing collor. then the receiver is bind.

You missed one bit Marthijn, You have to hold the bind button while you connect the battery power with the Orange 2.4 (bit tricky but possible). Recommend downloading instructions.

the bind button is recessed in the tiny hole right below the label on the case. to bind, push a small screwdriver into the hole and hold the button down when plugging in the battery. it is kind of hard to do that so to make it easier I use a standard switch harness for my radio set, plug the battery into the harness with the switch OFF. Then push the bind button down and turn on the switch in the switch harness.

You just have to press and keep pressing the binding button at your rx while powering it up, then the rx starts searching tx's. Recommended not to do at your flying field, due to the rest of tx's emmiting. If this doesen't work, power it up, then press binding button until led blinks

To Bind Turn on Transmitter. Hold Bind button down on RX and while holding bind button down plug in battery to channel 8. Red light flashes. Release bind button and light should go green. The default program in the RX is for digital servos. If you are not using digital servos you need to reconfigure the RX.

  Why is it suggested to use on smaller type planes? Would it not be ok for Giant Scale?
     
-Reply from p3tras (246 points);
Maybe it has low range? :D I wouldn't trust these receivers on giant scale aircraft until they are tested by community. Original Futaba receivers is still worth to buy for giant scale aircraft or FPV
-Reply from Luong Pu (39 points);
They claim range for 1.5km, the range is ok, but for big scale servos take more currents, you have to modify the two - lane under side by add some soldering to that two lane to form a supper lane, so it can take more currents.
-Reply from Douglas (10 points);
It suprises me that a reciever like this that can take up to 9.8v input would not be able to handle servos on a 35% plane. Thats more input voltage than even Futaba reciever.
-Reply from Straight Up (868 points);
You can run entirely separate power wiring for your servoes. You don't HAVE to run the power through your Rx, and for a big plane I'd recommend you DON'T - the Rx and servos can be on separate power supplies. The only wire that needs to run between your receiver and servos is the SIGNAL wire. I use this arrangement on my mechanical retracts in case the servo stalls - don't want to deplete my Rx battery due to a locked retract!
-Reply from naalroc (25 points);
Is that correct, 'Straigh Up'?
I would have thought, that ONLY the Signal wire is not enough, wouldn't you not need the (-) connection too, and a separate powerfeed on the and - ??
-Reply from Eric1180 (2285 points);
Straight up i am confused besides the fear of retracts stalling and causing a problem. That's a legitimate issue. Are you also saying that the RX can't handle the current draw from a large plane?
-Reply from Douglas (10 points);
Straight Up .... I am confused also. Are you talking about something like a "Power Expander"?
-Reply from Eric1180 (2285 points);
Because a normal receiver is rated up to 50 amps
-Reply from Douglas (10 points);
Would anyone know what this one is rated at?
-Reply from Luong Pu (39 points);
5 amps is big enough to burnout the copperclad underside , may be the hold rx unit. Receiver just did there work to received signal and make commands to the signal ports, so as someone said take out signal and ground(-) 2 wires and make a big power outside the rx unit ,this is the safest way.
-Reply from Eric1180 (2285 points);
Umm i am sorry but wouldn't Futaba say that you can only run 5 amps through there receiver it that was true. Please check there web site and prove me wrong. If you are in fact right it should be common knowledge
-Reply from Straight Up (868 points);
Sorry for the confusion, guys. You can safely run quite a few amps through your receiver. However, you can run an entirely separate power supply for your servos - I've done it. The mechanical retract servo in one of my planes has its own battery and switch, and the only link with the receiver is the signal wire from the servo. If you don't believe me, try it!

They will replace that unit and ship it back to me. I mailed it 1 1/2 months ago and have not received it yet but I expect to get it in the next 3-6 weeks. I hope this helps you. Doublesixes

Log into your hobby king account. Click on the order the RX was placed under. Scroll down and look at the 'notes' for the order. It will show store credit once the RMA is processed. If there is no mention on the RMA a few weeks after returning the park to HK, contact HK customer service.

i just combine logicaly: if i where HK, i wouldn`t post any comments on my suppliers and brandings on any open forum/discussion... just a thought... and i combine logicaly that frsky seems to be an supplier that delivers mostly identical receivers, if not the same. so the gif file that is downloadable in the files section shows everybody how to make an 14ch receiver with 2 of this. so i guess this is your receiver you are looking for. the "S-model" difference is: a jumper in the package and a different "marketing" case. just my thougt, correct me if i`m wrong

I'm not so sure Garfield,I have 2 of these rx's,tried to link out signal pins,according to Frsky instructions,But it did not work on my 10c tranny.

The two I just received on February 8, 2011 (ordered on January 31) have barcode stickers on the bottom of the case that says "TFR8". I guess that at least confirms that these are the FrSky TFR8 receivers. I also have a "genuine" FrSky TFR8 and it's case has the RoHS, FCC, and CE logos on it (although in print so small that you need a magnifying glass to see them).

No. This product itself will not work. You will have to purchase "OrangeRx Futaba FASST Compatible 8Ch 2.4Ghz Receiver (TFR8-S)"...with product:TFR8S.
You will have to bind 2 recievers together in order to make a 16Ch reciever and then use it on your T10CG.
-Reply from Turbo442 (51 points);
This receiver should bind with your Futaba T10CG, it will only be able to us 8 channels. I use it with my 8FG and 7C and it binds fine. You will need two of the TFR8-S model rx if you want to try going over 8 channels.
-Reply from Marinho (137 points);
This Rx works well with 10CG, just need to bind it. I am using with the 12FG also, the restriction is about the Channels, you will have only 8 ch, but buying the TFR8-S together you can have all 10 channels from your 10CG.

  Does anyone know if it is ok to use failsafe on Channel 3(ESC) with these receivers? A little note from HK says to disable failsafe to avoid servo jettering. I fly only electric. It would be nice to have failsafe on Channel 3. I have Fatuba 7C.
     
-Reply from Aefer (347 points);
I'm using it with 6EX and the servos in my HK Parkjet jittered constantly. I had to turn off fail safe, then re-bind it to stop jitter. haven't had a problem since
-Reply from bronya (220 points);
You can try to set up built-in failsafe into RX (but disabled on TX). It will give you what you want.
-Reply from machead (69 points);
You have to disable FS on your TX. Follow these steps on your RX to activate FS. TF series receivers support failsafe function for all channels. Please kindly follow the steps below to set failsafe: 1) Bind the receiver first, and disable failsafe on the transmitter side* 2) Set failsafe at any required position on any channel* 3) Press briefly the F/S button of the receiver, the GREEN LED of the receiver will flash twice, indicating the failsafe is set up successfully. If you do not need the
-Reply from kevinv033 (9 points);
I use this with 7C and 8FG. Turn off failsafe in Tx and set your failsafe at the Rx. If you want to use failsafe on CH3, turn on Tx & Rx, set CH3 position you want as failsafe and press and hold button on Tx until the settings register. You'll see some flashing on LED. Look in the files here for instructions.
-Reply from mcddd (1 points);
The little HK note is referring to disabling the failsafe settings in the transmitter. Otherwise the servos can jitter. After disabling the failsafe settings in the transmitter, the failsafe settings can be activated from the receiver. With the transmitter and receiver turned on, set the transmitter controls to the desired failsafe position, then push the button on the receiver for about 1 second and release. The green light in the receiver will flash twice, indicating the failsafe has been s
-Reply from Peter (7 points);
You must disable failsafe on the 7C, then, set the failsafe on the receiver which works on all channels. With everything switched on set the transmitter to whatever settings you want to happen as failsafe settings. BRIEFLY press the bind/failsafe button on the receiver. The green light will flash twice indicating that the failsafe is set. You can verify the failsafe by the usual method.
-Reply from DrEvil (133 points);
HK say to disable on YOUR RC-Tx if you activate the failsafe on the Rx, if not you get dobbel failsafe on ch 3. and one can experience problems.

-Reply from rfb750 (170 points);
depending on the type of servo you use you can use failsafe. just try it and observe whether the servos are jittering / moving slow.

-Reply from Straight Up (868 points);
A friend of mine had the jittering problem using fail-safe on Channel 3 with this Rx and a Futaba 7C. Many receivers and/or ESCs will set the throttle to minimum if transmission is lost, so fail-safe is not needed.
-Reply from madruga (122 points);
the futaba transmiters send to rx 2 of 2 minutes the position of fail safe. the signal fail safe make the servos jettering. disable the fail safe from tx.if you need fail safe, use the fail safe from rx.best regards.
-Reply from Rowen (24 points);
Rowen Switch of the failsafe on the transmitter , then set f/s on receiver as per the instructions on the file page . Go to the product page , scroll down till you see a tab with FILE on , click that and all will be revealled !!!! f/s , speed tandem setup etc ok?
-Reply from vermillet (5 points);
One issue concern the fail safe function: after programming the fail safe every things are ok and the servo's return to the safe poistion when the RF signal desapears .But when you turn off then on the power supply the fail safe function is lost. Nevertheless this RX seems good and I'll add a micro fail safe modul on the throttle.

Hi Guys.
If you cannot wait, please don't order. These items are going to take a little while longer because they're new and only just started production.

-Reply from ferincr (176 points);
Is not that we cannot wait...
I ordered because HK says it "seven days at the most", if the above statement said "40 days at least" the story would have been a different one.
And I bet a lot of the people that still ordering them they think they'll get it in seven days since most of them don't even know how to check how many BK there are at the moment (which according to what I see is -3590)
So the only thing I'm asking is for HK to correct the above statement so at least people that are not aware of the reality know what are they getting into...

My 6ex works fine with the OrangeRx. I found it difficult to bind as you have to hold the button in the RX as you plug in the battery and turn on the TX at the very same time.

As soon as you bind it, it will rebind on its on and in less than a second. Very pleased so far at 29.95. Higher price is not good as this receiver also is larger than the 7 channel Fut

I have Futaba t6ex and after read a lot buy one Orange Rx to test. Have two Futaba R617 that works fine and will try the Orange that cost 30 (or less) of a Futaba R617. Teorically if it works with one FASS control does not why not works with other TX that use the sabe techonology and protocol. May have to put on rx and wait more or less time to power on and press bind botton at RX, press RX bootom for more time... take a look for voltage from your bec/ubec that could be 5 ou 6 volts, normally 5

I have bought this receiver but can't get it to bind with my transmitter (futuba 4PK). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

perbe : do this step : turn on your transmitter, and while holding bind button turn on your receiver, wait for a couple seconds until light flashed solid.
-Reply from ipin17_aero (39 points);
perbe : this receiver only for air, not for surface models (futaba 4pk)
-Reply from perbe (5 points);
Hi. Thank you for the reply. Before I bought this I read that it should work with 4PK also, but it seems as if it doesn't. I have tried to bind according to your suggestion but it doesn't work, I just get blinking leds indicating it tries to bind (or no transmitter signal found). :(
-Reply from DeeJayKerem (181 points);
I've Tried with 3PM-X FASST surface TX. but no working with this receiver. I think this is Just for AIR. I will sell this receiver at second hand sites.

  In regards to the channels I know 1 is for ailerons but on my transmitter ch3 is for throttle. I am surprised that this product does not come with instructions as some one commented.
     
-Reply from Marc Volovic (72 points);
With Futaba transmitters, 1=Ailerons, 2=Elevator, 3=Throttle, 4=Rudder, 5=Gear, 6=Flaps. Exceptions are the Z series radios (14MZ, 12MZ and 9Z). In addition, it is possible to re-assign 5 and 7 using various mixes (Flaperon, Elevons, etc). And Futaba Radio manual has this info.
-Reply from ipin17_aero (39 points);
you can download the manual on files tab
-Reply from khairil10 (13 points);
the channel is correspond to Futaba channel setting. ch1-aileron, ch2-elevator, ch3-throttle, ch4-rudder, ch5-gyro or lgear, ch6-pitch, ch7&8-aux. led indicator rapid blinking-for digital servo, slow blinking-for analog servo. you may browse youtube for setting the receiver.

  To Bind Turn on Transmitter. Hold Bind button down on RX and while holding bind button down plug in battery to channel 8. Red light flashes. Release bind button and light should go green. The default program in the RX is for digital servos. If you are not using digital servos you need to reconfigure the RX. See You Tube video at WWW - youtube.com/watch?v=m6p0vOGYJnE The binding video is on the same page as the RX receiver at HK under Reviews.

Turn on the transmitter, connect the battery to the receiver while pressing receiver’s F/S button. After the RED LED is off and GREEN LED is solid, the binding process is completed and working mode is activated.
-Reply from villsvin (8 points);
Never bind Tx and Rx with any servos connected to the receiver or engine connected to ESC. Both Tx and Rx should be switched off before beginning the binding procedure. 1) Press and hold the bind button on the receiver. 2) Power ON your receiver while holding down the bind button. 3) The LED on the receiver should now be flashing red. Now release the bind button. 4) Power ON your transmitter .. and the LED should change to a solid green. 5) Hook up your servos and engine and enjoy your new

Hello around the receiver to bind must be pressed the set button before the battery is attached. As soon as the battery is connected the button leaves loose and it is bound. If man presses the set button wärend the battery is attached can one zwisachen similar and digital impulse scolded. If the LED slowly flashes is similar it on if it fast flashes on digital.

Channel 3 is the throttle, isn't it?. If you have esc with bec, you should connect it to channel 3. It will feed the rx and all servos through the positive and negative contacts, while taking thottle signal from the other pin.

yes it will work just fine, and yes you will have to wait.
-Reply from Jaroslaw (10 points);
Don't buy it. I paid for it 30/8/2010 and it is still processing.
-Reply from Jaroslaw (10 points);
Ok, my fault it looks like processign means i will get it. So you can try, maybe this time it will be faster.
-Reply from Jaroslaw (10 points);
... and it was 5/11/2010 not 30/8/2010. Is there a option to modify a comment ?
-Reply from Felix-r (36 points);
Definitely, you have to pay and wait. It will at last come to you, but, you have to keep something in mind: be patient!!!!

  Hello guys do you know if this receiver works with FUTABA 8FG transmitter?

thanks in advance
Greetings

-Reply from SteveO (36 points);
I have used them on my 8FG without any problem.
-Reply from Crazy Flutter (20 points);
Yes, It's working fine on the T8FG. note: in an environement with lots of interferences I would recommend you to use an original from Futaba or the new model FrSky TFR8S with Improve capability of anti-interference otherwise it's fine for the price. (locked out and crashed when I flew too close to mobile phone ground antennas)

  Will this Orange 2.4 GHz receiver be compatible/ bond with my Futaba 14SG FASSTest transmiter?
     
-Reply from kmh299 (18 points);
works perfectly with any radio FUTABA FASST including 14SG, very good!! But I prefer the FrSky TFR6 7ch, it is smaller and lighter.
-Reply from Fernando (9 points);
Hi Sinisa. This receiver expects to find and link to a FAAST signal from your TX. I believe Your 14SG must be set to operate by default in FAASTest mode. This is why the bind doesn't complete. So I believe you should set it to work in FAAST mode and then try to bind them. Hope it works!

  I am not sure what i am doing wrong but it is not binding with Futaba 14GS Fastest. I tried everything following recomandations from Futaba manual but nothing hapened. The best I get was a red and green light staing on both but no connection. Did anybody managed to bind with Futaba 14 GS?

  Thanks Fernardo, It was exactly that, my Futaba was set up by deftly to FAASTest mode. As soon I switch on FAST mode it connected immediately. Great little receiver.

  Hello, is this rx compatible with futaba 7c?
     
-Reply from Rob (165 points);
Works with my T7C no problem.
-Reply from DaxFX (135 points);
yes . I am using 7c with few of this.
-Reply from frankyboy (37 points);
yes!!

-Reply from kbrown (229 points);
If you go to the Futaba web site. Then go to the FASST home and the recievers page. Scroll dow to the bottom. A chart lists the different modules and the 7C 2.4 transmitter. It only shows that the 7c is compatible with up to the 7 channel recievers. I have a 12zh transmitter and to get my 4,6 or 7 channel recievers to work I must set my modlue to the 7 channel mode. In my 8 channel mode my 8 and 14 channel recievers work including this 8 channel compatible reciever. Sorry.
-Reply from simpleflyer (14 points);
yes it is.
-Reply from NumnutChriS (519 points);
yes, if the 7c is 2.4GHz - but you only get 7ch. Rx works with 6ex, 7c, 8fg, 10c/cg etc.
-Reply from Brandon Moon (114 points);
yes ...it is compatable with a 7c
-Reply from jperez@camaramu (5 points);
yes, i have two units working perfectly on my helis

Dont, know, mine did not bind with my 7c and has been sent back to HK 3 weeks ago!

Hi, I purchased one and it works great with my 7c transmitter. Peformance and range is comparible to the 617.

yes of course
-Reply from Peter (7 points);
Yes, no problem providing you read the instructions because there are several differences. These receivers are made by FrSky, their website contains downloadable instructions - ***********frsky-rc****/download.asp?id=23 Note the instructions about Binding, Modes, and failsafe settings.
-Reply from Duncan (8 points);
yes it is (as long as its the 2.4GHz FASST)

  Has anyone tried the tech tip using two Rx's to form a quasi-satellite system up to 14ch's? I tried this using a Futaba 12Z Tx, but could not make it work just had 2 Rx's mirror each other. I followed the directions listed in the Files Tab. Any help?
     
-Reply from bigphil (5 points);
I tried it and got the same result as you. Only channels 1 - 8 from both receivers. Anyone else make it work?
-Reply from meanrc2 (1 points);
Have tried also and it does not work, I am sure the are not the s version.
-Reply from bigphil (5 points);
How did you guys even know there is a S version. I don't see that in the product description. Don't get me wrong, these are a great price for an 8 channel but part of the reason I bought 4 was that I wanted to use the satellite option. Now I find out there are different versions? Handy that all that is spelled out so clearly...
-Reply from bigphil (5 points);
And we have Sam down there telling us everything "most people won't know" too...
-Reply from kbrown (229 points);
I have not, but do you have the latest software update in the transmitter?

  Hi, I cant find this info anywhere, firstly, does the black servo wire go to the heatshrink side, or to the PCB side? Secondly, in NORMAL SPEED mode, do the HXT900 servos work OK? People have said they are no good with this receiver. All my planes have HXT900 which is a worry. Thanks in advance
     
-Reply from __Fulg (250 points);
HXT900 servos work fine with this receiver. The negative side is the pin closest to the PCB. BTW: Since the positive voltage is on the middle pin, it doesn't matter if you connect servos backwards, they just won't work (you cannot fry them this way). If you orient your receiver like in the picture here (right-side up, pins on the left), channel assignment is CH1 at the bottom, and CH8 at the top. If you need an external battery (e.g. receiver pack) for testing, you can plug it into any free channel. This is all in the manual, available from the Files section here... I suggest you have a look, because the binding procedure is not the same as a standard Futaba receiver!
-Reply from mike (1 points);
The directions are under the files folder about halfway down the page. The rrceiver works great,they even have a video on how to! Good luck
