Merged...

Divay, thank you for taking the lead on testing these up to .90 size.  People ask me all the time at the field, and I was hesitant at recommending them for fuel planes over 40 size, because there was not much data on this type of usage !

Hi Krish....
Go ahead and use them without fear .. I have tested them to all limits !!!

Likewise

I have five of'em all except one (Thanks anam for initiating Warranty Replacement) worked pretty well, including on a 50cc gasser, the one that did not work had no light coming on , no binding, however servos were centering, HK gives 1 yr warranty, warranty replacement however will take time, heads up on that

because there was not much data on this type of usage !

Now you have'em, used it with Digital Hi torgue servo (Hitec 7955TG) on CAP 232 and    with Turnigy MG958 Composite Digital Metal Gear Servo on Edge 540 26 CC with gyro, this Rx works just fine, range check with Tx voltage of 11.9V 1.5 kms on a upsloping runway. If this data is of any help  Smiley

of course Failsafe → INH

To clarify... you INHibit failsafe on the radio, but do have to set it on the RX itself. 

In fact, we should have a topic/poll on that... how many people do really religiously set failsafe, and test it on the ground (by turning their radio off with the model at non-zero throttle) ?

I have also used 2 of them without any problems. The size of the plane should, really, have no bearing on the performance.

One would think so... except for the fact even the manufacturer seems to caution against usage of it on larger aircraft :

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=14300

Great for small planes, helis, parkflyers or even medium sized sport planes.

Now why would they do that ?  We can only guess reasons like inadequate QA, inability to handle current (hanging too many hungry servos?), inability to handle vibrations etc.

Anwar Bhai,

Didn't want to spell it out here , checked this Rx out with the similar Tx volts, orig Rx had Range a shade less than Orange, May be because Orange has a better Antenna, but will that Rx be considered a bench mark or an aberration? can't say, One out of 5 Rx went bad and that is a large percentage, Rx quitting in air due vibration is an issue which cannot be tested. therefore, the reason why they say not on a bigger model is probably to save you some money if Rx quits for any of the reasons  enumerated by you above

Am in complete agreement with the last line. As for vibration, 4C engines vibrate more than 2C. So would the recommendation be for 60 - 4C?

Oh.. one thing I noticed was that the antennas were capable of rotating at their base (where they are attached to the PCB).  I can't imagine why they did that, a direct soldered connection would have been simpler and more reliable ?

Anwar. Both the technique and connectors are standard. Futaba also uses the same.

That is true, but the cases of the Futaba ones did the job of securing the antennas. The initial lot of the Orange RX ones without cases was what I was griping about.

For the record here is the pic comparing both, in terms of Rx size and antenna Length. Wt is almost same. (SD Card is to give an idea of the size)

Looks like someone forgot to set failsafe on this one :

With FRSky having a good track record with TFR8 and the new TFR6 coming to close to OEM Futaba RF617, I don't see many people testing the new water unless FrSku ones go out of stock. The price of Corona ones are at ballpark, giving no financial justification for the switch.

Frsky has gained much applaud for their ACCTS system in the FPV/UAV community and seem to be winning the hack module  war with more veteran Corona. Their inexpensive Telemetry system is another rave.

nevertheless, this thread would wait for similar field report of these Rx, like Divey and Gusty sir did for Frsky TFR8.

Wonder if the Corona one is better than the FrSky/Orange ones.

Frsky version of futaba rx is pathetic.. I have had many bad experiences with frsky rx... It sucks big time..  i have lost some really good models with this piece of junk. Most of the time it was complete brown out. 3Electric n 1 nitro model smashed down to the ground coz of this useless piece is xxxx.
Orange rx is much better.. I have tried it on big models with high torque servo and its brilliant with no glitches no control loss.Its worth paying extra 10$ n getting a faast orange..
Cant trust frsky again with their new dummy rx.
About Corona.. Cant trust hobbyking reviews. .
Either wait till someone crashes his planes n puts up his rx on sale or try it yourself on a worthless model..

I was under the impression that Orange RXs are actually repackaged FrSky RXs.  Did a quick search, and came up with stuff like these.

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=10820632

So any quality issues should affect both, right ?
