All the current receivers are actually transceivers. In the future we will offer a line of receivers without the telemetry capability which will allow them to be even less expensive and lighter. These will all be full range though... I'm not sure if our technology would allow an even lighter limited range product... we'll see.
Here's a pic of the Optima 6 with the case removed and shrink wrapped. I also removed the booster which is made of brass to get the weight down further; it now weighs 8.5grams. I fabricated the label from a photo that was reduced by 25% and added some foam board to the bottom to keep it square.
