If two transmitters have the same ID, the receiver will listen to both of them.

Impossible to determine due to HK's silence, but based on the ID's that have published online, extremely high and therefore not worth the risk IMHO.

"Impossible to determine" or "extremely high"?

Impossible to provide a number (I'm an engineer, remember) due to their lack of forthrightness. The range of IDs published on the web (not facts from their engineers, just user-published data which may not be as reliable) indicate a very small set of IDs and therefore an extremely high probability of collision and therefore high risk.

It would seem easy enouph to run a ticket system incremented by 1 during manufacture and avoid all collisions. At least inside their domain. Is this somehow more difficult to do during mfg then using a small generated list? Confused as to why they seem to have created their own problem.

The worrisome thing is that it could be "our" (users) problem if people are running around in public with these.

Still waiting to hear from somebody doing exhaustive tests in DSMX.

DSMX would imply genuine receivers being used with imitation transmitter module. How much sense does that make?!?!

Nope (as expected) they deleted it without comment.

Andy, do you have a web page reference for the ID range?

I'm similarly confused as wsj, as to why they would repeat IDs inside their domain.

Is there a "manufacturer domain", or is there just a single range of IDs?

It sounds like Orange has a weakness in their DSMX implementation. I expect they're working on addressing it but frankly, I would be just as happy with the Orange Tx module if it didn't try to do DSMX at all. I suspect most of the purchasers aren't even using DSMX.

For a small number of users that care about DSMX, this might be an issue to consider. However for people like me who do not fly simultaneously with many dozens or hundreds of other flyers, there may not be a justification for DSMX. I'm not flying $500 models and I'm not flying extreme distances (though DSMX doesn't claim to increase max distance anyway). So far, the Orange Tx module has worked flawlessly in my 9x which lets me easily remap channels to match BnF planes. In non-BnF planes I'm using DSM2-compatible receivers ($9 delivered) and have no lost packets even when flying to the edge of visual range in any orientation including intentionally blocking the Tx with my body, pointing the antenna directly at the plane etc. During excessively harsh range testing I have yet to be able to force the loss of even one packet (much less even momentary loss of control).

Spektrum/Horizon makes great gear, however for my particular applications DSMX exceeds my requirements. Not to worry though, that just frees up a bit more cash for Horizon to snag with some planes and other gear. In fact, that was the primary reason for getting the Orange module, so I could buy Horizon BnF planes. Otherwise I would have just stuck with my FlySky module and kept buying more FlySky Rxs.

The orange weakness in there DSMX implementation is that the not know how DSMX is implemented. The Orange can copy chips but the don't know the logic behind. The got cloned only orginal Spektrum DSMX modules.
Therefore only a limited ID space for the orange DSMX avaible.

Probably true when the module was originally released, but there is nothing to stop them addressing the issue retrospectively with a v2; DSMX was cracked and the code placed in the public domain some months ago. From earlier in the thread...

But the problem with this russian code it work only within a range of 5m at full power.
