It might turn out to be such a big undertaking that Horizon will just let it slide. In my little flying group there is at least 30 LemonRX receivers and we have only had one to go bad. They just had a price increase but they were $5.75 if you buy 5 at a time. I had one in a glider that got so far away I could not see it and a 14 year old boy had to fly it back for me. They work damn good, cheap and for small foamies is the way to go, so I guess time will tell as to what if anything will be done about it. We even have Hitec after market receivers that work good too.
I think you're worried over nothing as the release of the XPS transmitter is highly unlikely.....
I'll continue to use my old but trusted JR 9303 with XPS modules and receivers as they have been solid from day one.
My FrSky Taranis has been very solid for the past two yrs as well
Personally, I wouldn't touch Spectrum with a 10 ft pole . But of course , that just my opinion
