It needs a Hitec Single Conversion Receiver crystal, part # 66472XX, where XX is the channel #. As far as range - on the case it says "extra long range" - whatever that means. The receiver is not listed on -

From instruction sheet and as quoted on retailer's web page:

The New 6Channel HFS-06MT / Mini 6S FM Single Conversion Receiver is a full range narrow band robust receiver weighing just over 15g with great performance.
- 6 Channel Single Conversion FM Aircraft Receiver
- Gold Plated Pins
- Auto Gain Control
- Uses Hitec Single Conversion Crystals.
- Narrow Band / Compact Size
- Weight 15.5 gm (0.55 oz)
- Input Voltage: 4.3 to 6.0 V
- Size 36.7X25X18mm (1.46 X 0.98 X 0.71 inches).

1. Always turn on the transmitter before turning on the power to the receiver.
2. Always perform a range check prior to the first flight of the day. Check the operation status at least 35 m (75 feet) away from the receiver with the transmitter antenna fully collapsed.

Changing the Crystal.
The Hitec receiver is "center tuned"and will accept any Hitec single conversion crystal (within same band) without re-tuning.

[*Auto shift Selection - for 72 MHz mini 6S. Just by turning "OFF" and "ON" of mini 6S, you can easily synchronise the Shift type. (Keep the TX power ON during Auto Shift Selection) ]
