spektrum dsm2/dsmx micro receiver recommendations


I'm looking for a micro receiver for the radio tranmittor on a 2 inch quad. Should be lightweight and really small. Now, spektrum is not the good brand for these things but ok. Now, I could order a 40-50 euro receiver from Spektrum, a tat expensive thus, plus, they are not really micro, more like mini.

So, any cheaper and smaller options that you guys know off? I did find some, but the range is not specified:

this one is only 500 meters, so in reality, probably 100 meters:

now I ordered this one, but antenna's seem so short:

Can I solder longer antenna's one the latter? Which ones?

I also found this one:

I wonder if this one could be set up to work with this satellite receiver:

Because, the satellite receive does not work without a main receiver, or does it?

I am interested in this topic as well, but have no experience with any of the receivers you linked...

Regarding your last question - a satellite can be used without the main receiver attached. Some use the receiver to bind it initially though... I have read mixed reports about the DSMX satellites with some people saying they have nothing but trouble with them, and some people never having trouble. Sometimes that trouble is range/control related, and sometimes they can't get it to bind using BF. I don't know what decides whether you have a good day or a bad day - maybe the firmware of the FC?
