The Orange R8DM is a 2.4GHz DMSS compatible receiver that is designed for use with JR DMSS 2.4GHz transmitters, such as XG6,XG7,XG8 ,XG11 and XG14 under DMSS protocol mode.
Affordable and with a great reputation for reliability, Orange receivers are a fantastic alternative for budget conscious hobbyists and this 8 channel receiver for JR 2.4Ghz transmitters is just outstanding value.

The receiver setup is different from original receiver and you should notice:
1. The negative pole of the wires (black) facing down - toward the button side.
2. Binding: open new model in your transmitter (in system mode), throttle stick down. better that there will be NO other open 2.4Ghz sources near the receiver during the binding (like portable telephones/ telephone base, WiFi routers etc.)
3. Put the shorten binding cable plug in the right place in the receiver (Ch 6 for R8DM and XG7). you can also connect one servo for checking the binding. Operate
the transmitter ON in REGULAR working mode with the NEW model selection. connect the battery to the receiver while pressing the button and then release the button. red light shown.
4. Wait! . NO need to operate the transmitter in binding mode - just REGULAR working mode.
5. After about 30 seconds the light is changing to green. thats it. it should work, you can also see the connected servo moving.
6. Disconnect everything. Good Luck!I have got mind to bind to the JR XG 14 7 the JR 28X.
Need to have the transmitter in the binding mode before powering up the receiver.
Good range as well.
Better binding would make a far better receiver.
BobI have JR XG-6 XG-8 and 28X transmitters.
I was not able to bind the receiver to any one of these transmitters.
I followed the instructions and tried dozens of times.
Either my particular unit was defective, or there is a design problem.I think this is an excellent product offered by Hobbyking. I did run in to some problems at the beginning, I have an XG11MV, and I learn't that XBus on the transmitter needs to be deactivated before this receiver will allow you to bind to it. Normally the creation of a "new" model will already have XBus deactivated. This does output S.bus, little bit weird for a DMSS device but functional. I have one in my quadcopter and another in a wing. I was able to invert the S.bus signal just like an X4R-SB and use it with a Naze32. Wish it had XBus instead of S.bus and also wish it had telemetry support.Got two of these.
After tons of trails - I managed to pair both of these to my JR XG11 TX.
Using one on my emax nhp 280 and the other i will be testing out on my f450 quad.
Initially i followed everything per the instructions on the back of the pack but it was not pairing. Finally after many trials when it did pair, after selecting BIND on the TX, before it leaves that screen, the green LED lights up and seems paired.
Note : The negative of the servo leads is toward the botton of the RX. So top to bottom is - Signal / Power / Ground!
So far happy with it. Will plan to get more.
