To date there hasn’t really been much in the way of third party receivers for the JR DMSS 2.4GHz protocol — but HobbyKing’s new Orange RD8M receiver looks set to change that. I was happy with the build-quality and initial performance tests of this receiver so if it passes the flight tests it could be a great option for JR DMSS radio users who are looking to save a little money without compromising performance.

– good range (equal or better than the genuine JR receiver)
– excellent signal reacquisition (faster than the JR receiver)
– smaller size and lighter weight

– no telemetry
– binding operation a bit hit and miss
