The OrangeRx R616XN is a single line connection 6ch receiver that is used in conjunction with CPPM compatible devices as used on a lot of helicopter flybarless systems and multi-rotor control boards. Perfect for the smaller models where weight and room is a major factor, it weighs only 1.4g including the cable. The receiver is based on the popular Cypress MCU.
The R616XN is compatible with DSM2/DSMX 1024/2048 aircraft radios and module systems and has an ultra fast brownout recovery and it also includes an advanced fail safe feature. Advanced failsafe is perfect for most types of aircraft. When the signal is lost for less than 1 second all channels will hold the last command, if the signal is lost for more that 1 second then all the channels will go to a predefined position which you set during the binding process.
Sometimes a short power loss happens during flight, it can happen if your BEC is not powerful enough as you use all the servos or functions or it could be a weak battery. This can cause a short voltage drop which will result in the receiver suddenly losing power and is called a brownout. When power comes back it takes time for the receiver to reconnect to the transmitter, this may lead to a crash under normal circumstances. With the ultra fast brownout recovery feature this receiver has it will reconnect so quickly only a minor glitch is noticed.
As a reminder please note that this receiver can only to be used with CPPM compatible devices, it is not a standalone receiver with outputs for servos etc. The fitted JR style plug lead plugs into the CPPM input of the compatible device.

As others have mentioned, this is a PPM receiver, not a Spectrum Satellite. For a microbeast you need to set it in PPM mode (Menu A - blue flashing), then assign channels manually. It will not work in spectrum Sat mode. Also you have to bind by shorting the pins, it will not bind using the FBL bind mode.
work realy nice with a CC3D and orange TX for 9XR. Easy to bind, don't forget to asign only 6 channel on PPM in the radio. If not only throttle works ^^
works fine. if using the kk mini make sure to see picture of correct wiring under files tab.
Using these CPPM RX's on my Naze32 equipped FPV racers without any issues. Would be even better if they had dual antenna instead of one for diversity.
VERY SMALL. Easy to bind, seems to be ok so far but have not gone more than a few yards away from the quad its on so far. We will see about the range later. This is working on a kk2.1 mini
DO not need regulator or something else, just plug, bind. Reception is good as my other Specktrum DSMX satellite.
For those who want to use it with a KK board, set your KK in CPPM mode, and plug it in AILERON channel, not in the throttle channel as a DSM2 or DSMX satellite.
To bind it. short the black and orange cable will applying power (do not use the KK method to bind it)
Have been looking for a micro Rx for my 250 FPV racer. Originally I tried a DSMX satellite but it did not work reliably and I did not trust it. I've been using a regular 6ch DSMX Rx but didn't like the larger size and using a jumper wire for each channel. This micro CPPM Rx is exactly what I've been looking for: even smaller/lighter than a DSMX sat and only uses a single connection to the flight controller.
It was very easy to set up. I followed the instructions for binding then used Cleanflight to set the flight controller to CPPM Rx and it was working.
I was a little concerned about the single antenna, but after a thorough range test and 8 flights yesterday I'm more confident it will be reliable. Still would feel better with dual antenna though. 8ch support would be nice, but for a 250 FPV quad 6ch is all I need. Don't think I'd run one of these in my big helis, but that's not really what they are meant for.
