The OrangeRx GA400F has all the properties and features of the original FASST compatible receivers but this one has 2 operating modes. Mode A gives the standard 4ch operation, Mode B gives CH1, CH2, RSSI and SBus. Another feature of this receiver is that it has "Normal Mode" and a "High Speed" mode. Normal mode is for standard analog servos and equipment and high speed mode is for digital servos. Do not use high speed mode for analog servos otherwise they will get hot and burn out.
The S.Bus functionality is an excellent feature for use with multi-rotor flight controllers such as the KK2.1, APM, MultiWii and others. These single line connections remove the weight and mess of additional wire leads for each individual channel. This is ideal for use on small frames where space is at a premium and keeps all the wiring neat and tidy.
RSSI (Receiver Signal Strength Indicator) is a fantastic feature to put through the OSD of your FPV rig. The receiver has a chip installed that is connected to the RSSI output which gives an analog signal that gets stronger the better reception you have.
The receiver will also accept a wide range of input voltages from 3.5~8.4V which is great if you want to use LV and HV type servos.

Thie receiver bound immediately with my T8FGS transmitter and is now installed in quadcopter and works perfectly. I did place the receiver as close to the transmitter as advised by other reviewers. Excellent value.Thie receiver bound immediately with my T8FGS transmitter and is now installed in quadcopter and works perfectly.

I did place the receiver as close to the transmitter as advised by other reviewers. Excellent value.I have several of these receivers and they work great for me binding to a 7C and T8FG. With the T8FG they work fine in both 7CH and MULT mode. Not sure why others are having so much trouble. You do have to place the radio really close to the receiver to bind otherwise it won't work. I've also flown these out as far as I could see with a 1000mm wing with no problems.Will not bind. I've tried two different transmitters in every mode Futaba offers. Nothing. Zilch. Doesn't work.This receiver does not bind with my Futaba T8FG Fasst radio. Switching between output mode A and B does work, but no binding..... Waste of money. Other Orange FASST compatible reveivers never had issues, this one does.works really great for indoor planes and other small aircraft.
have four of these and no problem so far :)Pins are parallel with board, keeping wires neat, light and small, perfect for fomies, and works with FUTABA FASST radiosThis receiver is tiny and light. Not sure what sort of range i will get out of a single antenna though.
It does work with Futaba Faast system in normal and Sbus modes.
