Description

Extend your range and increase your link robustness with the OrangeRx cPPM receiver. This is the long antenna version making it ideal for FPV racing and for models with carbon fiber frames. The extra length of the antenna allows you to route them outside of the model.

OrangeRx receivers are built using original components, MCUs and with state of the art SMT automation to ensure a quality product each and every time. Every R618XL is manufactured using impedance matched PCBs with exact tuning to provide signal stability and range that exceeds any of the previous generation ORX products. In fact, our testing has shown that the R618XL exceeds the range of other receivers in the same class.

All R618XL OrangeRx receivers are QC tested using our latest method that ensures range checking takes place as the receiver is programmed. Simply put, if the R618XL cannot pass the range check it cannot be programmed, this ensures 100% of R618XL are guaranteed to work flawlessly.

The R618XL ushers in a new era of quality, reliability and performance for the OrangeRX line up.

This receiver features TRUE DIVERSITY technology. It is especially important for long range flights and in situations where you need more robust reception. It is also very useful in aircraft with carbon fiber frames where antenna can be in shadow of the airframe.

If one of the antennas cannot receive signal due to its orientation of airframe shadow, the satellite will use the other one and will still receive proper commands from transmitter. We tested these satellites in real flight tests many times and achieved 2 or more kilometers line of site performance. Please note that your range depends on the conditions in your place – interference, WiFi presence, obstacles and even air humidity.

This receiver has been tested and fully compatible with following flight controls:
- Naze32
- CC3D
- KK2
- MultiWii - APM(2.0 and up)
- V-Bar 5.3

I bought another R618XL and have been using the cppm feature on a quad. It works well.
Now I need another one.... :-)
They work well in DLG gliders too. Very small Rx.

I bought 2 but one was a dud so I don't know how they can claim 100% with their quality control. Stretching the truth as some of these Chinese manufacturers do.
They do work with the latest Spektrums contrary to a claim by another buyer. I have the latest G3 DX6. Hobby King replaced the dud Rx and so far both RXs are performing well in Wings and DLGs . I need another one.

Bought one and had a flashing light after binding,HK replaced it and the second does the same.Did not bother to claim.Tested with DX6G2,DX7G2,DX8 and DX9 and the flashing persist. Can anybody tell me if this issue has been resolved. I like the size and ppm output.

Have my second one. I mistreated the first one, sent it back, advising them it was my fault it smoked. HobbyKing promptly replaced it with no problems and no cost to me. Now that is a great company. Works very well. Havent range tested yet but all else is good. Using in a 35" slo fly foamie with flaps and emotor with 7x6 prop. Very windy and gusty here so this stabilization is just what I want. Will advise soon at the next semi calm day.

max input voltage ok for 2S lipo but 3S lipo?. Be careful, no over voltage circuit protection indicated so a 3s lipo may give overheating issues. Also, not all servos can be used. Match your max servo operating voltage and use a BEC if need be. I blew up one today putting a expensive digital servo in and smoked both the servo and rcvr. BUT that is only because I plug in the servo backwards ( plus to minus, minus to plus). Before destroying the rcvr,, I did note the rcvr operating just great and would recommend it at this price., but is slow to link. Certainly a good receiver for foamies .

Be careful as these do not bind properly to a latest spec Spektrum tx with dual antennae. Mine is a dx8. They do bind fine to earlier transmitters. Hobbyking is aware of this problem and hopefully they will come up with a fix
