Default Futaba 4PL/3PL FHSS -- cheap receiver options?

Just curious if anyone knows of some cheap options for receivers, like the Orange receivers that work for Spektrum radios. Thanks.

How much cheaper can you get? The FHSS Futaba receivers are cheap enough as it is

Oh yes, I know they're less expensive than the FASST receivers, which is one of the reasons why I sold my 3PMX for a 4PL. I have 5 Futaba brand receivers already, but I read somewhere that there was a "cheap" option from hobbyking. Those orange receivers for Spektrum are 10 bucks a pop, and they work great. So I was just wondering if anyone else out there could confirm another option for my controller.

I use those in my rock crawlers (I use a Spektrum DX3R Pro for racing).

Do they work with the Futaba 3pl?

If they do then they will be heaps cheaper than the original Futaba branded one.

I have had the receiver now for 2 weeks. I can report that it has caused no issues for me and I think actually works better than the original (and saves weight)
