In the world of racing drones the requirements are for small and light weight components. The FS-A8S receiver fits these requirements superbly, being only 20x14x5.3mm and 1.2g.
The FS-A8S is built for use in multi-rotor drones and is a 1-way receiver (no telemetry). It uses the extremely stable AFHDS 2A (Automatic Frequency Hopping Digital System) protocol, supports standard PPM output and has i-BUS support for up to 18 channels.
This is an excellent receiver to add to your Turnigy Evolution, Turnigy i6S and Turnigy i10 radios.

Tried three of these receivers with a Turnigy Evo that has been upgraded to the latest firmware. It appears that they are not compatible and there are weird glitches in the throttle.

Light weight and compact design, suitable for micro / tiny Quads.
It is quite tricky to bind it with the TGY-i6S Radio.
It comes with a small bind button under the paper clip, increasing the difficulty to bind with the Radio.
i hoped to get a good range..(+300 it says??) but had a little range of 50meters , i crashed right into water!! thnx but it was an expensive receiver for me:) 130€ on damage :) back to the old receiver! very dissapointed
