Why would you say that (highlighted) in that specific way? Do you know the exact history of the one the OP owns?
Back in my Spektrum days I had quite a few AR6100 receivers in my smaller gliders and electric planes and they performed flawlessly. Some of the gliders were taken out to a point where they were a small dot in the sky and I never lost control. Range of these receivers is not the issue - the single antenna being easily shadowed by a larger metal containing object like an engine or a 2S 1800mAh or larger battery is.
I still keep one AR6100 for bench testing purposes with the DSM2/DSMX module conversions I provide. All of my AR6100s were bought either from Horizon or Horizon authorized resellers and all of them (minus the one I still have) went to Horizon for a check up before I sold them here on RCG. They came back with a clean bill of health and upgraded to the latest FW, a sure sign they were not fakes. I did know they were not fakes even before I sent them for the check up as I bought all of them before the clones, fakes and "compatibles" appeared.
