Now I am forced to drive across town to one of the chain LHS's where the teenagers behind the counter provide the best to be expected service, believe it or not.

Sorry...off topic....just been browsing..... and had a psychological "trigger" after reading this. Maybe this venting will provide well needed closure

cheers!

So you suggest that FrSky is one of those 6 companies, and it is using same components as Orange Rx? The pictures of the two receivers are different looking, even the chips look different. But there is an info that suggest you may be right: FrSky launch date is also mid september. I guess beta testers will post more detailed pictures and infos end of August. Bruce will have one next week.
In this case, who are the other 4 companies that will launch Futaba clones?
...
LE: after some hours they changed estimated date to 30 August, from 17 Sept.
It seems there is a war, who launch them first. I don't like this, and I would hesitate to buy first batch, could have QC issues.

Orange Rx FAAST


What I do not understand is how come are they getting away with using the word FAAST. Isn't FAAST a registered trademark? and, is Orange/FrSky a reputable brand in China?

Is not FAAST, but FASST.
And now... are you sitting well on the chair ?
They can use it because even Futaba doesnt own that trademark, it is owned by Fujitsu
Fujitsu Flexible Architecture for Subscriber Service Termination (FASST™)

They are using the phrase 'Fasst compatible'. They are not putting a Fasst label on their RXs. They can use the Fasst word in many ways, they just can't label their equipment as being Fasst or claiming they are Fasst. They are making no claim that their RXs are Fasst, just Fasst compatible.

It would be interesting to find out if these receivers continually scan the spectrum like the original Futaba or simply lock onto one or two idle 2.4 slots.
I had a cheapo FlySky system and it chose one slot.

The transmitter does the spectrum scanning the way I understand it. The receiver just has to follow the same scanning sequence to stay in sync.

They simply use the same protocol as the Futaba transmitter. Obviously a FlySky type receiver protocol would not work.

I would assume they work on the whole spectrum just like a Fasst receiver. How else can they be compatible with Futaba FASST transmitters?

Looks like they have a firmware bug in the failsafe.

“Note* Disable failsafe on transmitter, otherwise you will experience servo jitter.”

https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/s...dProduct=14300


Has anyone received their receiver, if so how does it work?

Is the firmware upgradable by the user (USB interface)?

I have one on back order and hopefully they will fix the firmware before they ship mine.

I got mine 1 week ago.

Failsafe is a little different that in original receiver.
To setup failsafe you have to do.
1. disable failsafe on transmitter. "setup on hold"
2. move stick that way you want it to be on failsafe and then press button on the receiver.
3. that's it. Failsafe is enabled.

-- Difference is on original receiver, that you don't have to press button on receiver.

Ok here is what i found.

I have setup tranismitter to MultiMode.
Receiver to FS mode, because i use analog servos. HS mode is only for digital servos.

I went to fly my 2m glider as high as i could see the plane. No problem so far. Then i have pointed antena directly to the plane. Signal should be very low now. Still no problem. I have repeated this for 40 minutes when i emptyed 3 battery packs. No problem so far. I'm very happy with this receiver.

Servo movement is smooth.

I just hope that they make plastic case for it.

I got mine today from HiModel.

Instruction manual contains unfamiliar words.

"red LED will flash fast in HS mode and slow in FS Mode."

What is HS and FS Mode?
