I think there is some confusion on the terms, as your not really using it as a satellite receiver, just as a standard receiver - as your only using one of them. A satellite receiver implies multiple receiving units that interface to one central receiver - in an aid to improve reception coverage. IMO, not necessary when you can use a multi-antenna set-up available on most receivers now.
A standard receiver capable of outputting SBus or PPM (or even the Spektrum Satellite format) is what your after and would be more effective. Using a Spektrum satellite on their own don't allow them to be positioned optimally as they only have short antenna on them - especially around carbon fibre frames. Also (I believe) they have no antenna diversity - only one antenna (the two wires make up the single antenna), so can't choose the optimum antenna to receive from.
