Futaba FASST compatible receivers?

Hi. I have a Futaba tx. 3PM-MX and a lot of different rtr cars/trucks Iíve collected over the past 30 years. This Tx is great and Iíd like to consolidate a couple of cars to just one controller. But the rx is $80-90 which is crazy. Can anyone tell me how to know what receivers would work with it? Iíve googled and found maybe a few Iíll link below that have FASST. Also, could I just use a plane rx? The prices are lower on Futabaís air receivers. Thank you much!

I'm sure the Orange or FrSky 4 channels receivers work. I read good things about them. There is also CoolTech, and Corona receivers.

I searched for the lowest priced receiver I could find. I wasn't going to pay $80 for a new Futaba FASST Rx either. I don't know what makes them so pricey like that. Even the used ones are still going for $45~$50 on a good day if you can find and jump on them.

I've been using this thing for the past year with great success...the Redcon FT4R Ultralight 2.4G 4CH FASST Mini RC Receiver. Only problem is, Banggood is sold out. I pick it up for $16 and some change. I had my doubts with the Redcon as the Ultralight Rx is wrapped with paperboard. I run my 1/10 scale truggy in some pretty dusty environments. No problems yet.

I bought a Redcon FT4RSB receiver off a vendor on eBay it binds and works fine with my Futaba 3PKS. It was US$22 at the time I bought it. I think it's gone up to US$27 now.

Awesome. Thanks guys. I got 2 of the Orange’s but haven’t tried em just yet. Y’all got way better deals than I did but at least I didn’t pay Futaba prices though lol. So I was digging through boxes last night and found an old 7 channel FASST rx. You think it’ll work too?
