The CORONA 2.4GHz R4FA-SB Spread Spectrum FASST Compatible Receiver is designed for use with FUTABA’s FASST 2.4GHz transmitters; including the 3PM, 3PKS, 3VCS, 3GR, 4PK(S), TM7, TM8, TM10, TM14 and the T6EX-2.4G, 7C-2.4G, 8FG, 10CG, 12FG. The R4FA-SB receiver supplies a more useful mode for users. The R4FA-SB supports not only FUTABA’s FASST air system, but FASST surface systems as well. This receiver supports up to 7-channels with continuous PPM (positive and negative) output, RSSI output and S.BUS output.
Under S.BUS output mode, R4FA-SB supplies 12 proportional channels and 2 DG channels. Therefore, the R4FA-SB becomes a 14-channel receiver when using S.BUS output.
Operating Current: 50mA max
Operating Voltage: 3.6 ~10V
14mS for independent 4 channel output and S.BUS output @ FASST multi-channel mode
21mS for Continuous PPM output and RSSI output@ FASST multi-channel mode
16mS for independent 4 channel output and S.BUS output @ FASST 7ch mode
24mS for Continuous PPM output and RSSI output@ FASST 7ch mode
14mS for independent 3 channel output@ FASST surface system C1 CODE mode
Sensitivity: about -100dBm
Operation temperature: -10~80 deg C
Bought one and got the same problem as McClean. For binding no problem but for changing mode it'is really aleatory pressing long time, short time, slowly, rapidly. What the QC sticker means? Why spending time and money to put this sticker???The FS/Bind button does not work. I had to use a jumper to jump between the button pads to bind and change modes. Ironically, I had to break the "QC Passed" sticker to fix it.
Once bound, it seems to work just fine.perfect tiny compact size for mulirotor using the S-Bus option. mine seemed to work fine and bound up with my tx no troubles I just read the instructions 3 times over before I tried it. the only issue I had with it was the tiny instruction page with very tiny writing but I managed and it performs better than expected.
Thanks again HK for a painless transaction.Got this RX with pushbutton not working. As I can see in other reviews, it seems to be common problem. They should consider NOT placing a "QA passed" sticker on it in future.I have used this Receiver in a glider and flew as high as I was able to see it and in PPM special Mode on a 450 Quadrocopter without any troubles. Binded in under a second. To change into special Mode just hold the button for 5 seconds and then release it before 6 seconds have passed. When red and green are flashing simply push it again and you're done. Make sure to (re)bind it after every output mode change.

So I am totally happy with it and gonna buy another one :)I've ordered 4 of the R4FA-SB receivers. One of them was not binding - i could fix this with spraying electronic-contactspray in it (position where the button is). After pressing serveral times it works. But a strange feeling remains, so im using this receiver only for wireless simulator on pc.
The bigger problem was switching to specialoutput mode for sbus and ppm. Its NOT WORKING like descriped in the manual. I tried it a long time, but nothing. Another user told me, he had the same problem. I was very frustrated so i started to test pressing several times long, short, hammering on the button. After 30sec-1minute the receivermode switched from slowly blinking red to fast blinking red. I checked SBUS output, its working. I could bring all 4 receivers to specialoutput mode with pressing stupidly on the button 40sec to 1 minute. I dont know how to do this correctly, the way descriped in the manual is not working!
I don't know if the receivers range and reliability is ok, but the feeling with the descriped problems above is not good.
