Range:<1Km is a little bit low vs an AR8000 with ~3km with EU power setting.
No I2C Bus no vario, no altitude, no GPS, no g-sensor, no capacity sensor, no airspeed etc.
No X-Plus.

Range up to 1 km is quite OK if you fly airplanes and helis. If you fly multirotors or FPV , best choice is some long range systems. I hope adequate sensors will be available soon, vario for instance, and altitude sensor.

And there are two different 6 channel receivers not mentioned in the first post. One has S.BUS and the other CPPM.

Yeah I noticed the two different 6 channels. Wondered why they did it that way? I think at the price point they will be well received. For me I would use them for small gliders and foamies that I want to keep track of the battery. The only thing that would be nice is the x-plus for the vario. Can't have everything especially for under $20...

I have used the previous 8ch Orange DSMX receiver and have had no issues. I used the s.bus port using a converter.

I picked up a few of these 12 ch receivers as I blieve they are going to be as good or better than the 8 channel (I hope). However, I have a couple of questions absent a proper manual. What is the CPPM and how do I use the SBus and CPPM on this receiver??

Which of the Orange, if any, is suitable for helicopter use?

All. How many channels do you want? Minimum is 6 for a CCPM heli. So I would go for a 7 or 9 channel.

When I look into them, they all say fine for multi rotor, but won't work with a conventional helicopter.
I'm just trying to find a relatively inexpensive way to run a FP FBL heli on DSMX.
A 6 channel is ideal, but I can't seem to find an OrangeRX that will do it.

Radiolink receivers are advertised at 1.1 Km on the ground but this is the real range for FPV

Use an AR610 or AR600. DSMX and reasonably priced. Only originals for flying lawnmowers....

But I ordered also one of these. I wonder what range the telemetry has. I think it is only short range. Otherwise these are things Spektrum should have come up with years ago.

A lot of this is still beyond my knowledge, but if I read it right I could use something like a Tarot ZYX-S2 FBL contoller with a OrangeRX DSMX satellite, then my DX6i could do everything I need.

Does anyone know about CPPM and Sbus use on these RXs? No manual or anything! I looked it up online and was not able to find anything substantial that explains CPPM and Sbus use on this RX. If someone knows please let me and others who buy this RX know please. On the 8Ch os was easy, there was a sbus port and I connected my sbus convertor and it connected to the servos. On the these there is no sbus port on the RX?
