Default Aftermarket FASSTest Compatible Receiver?

Does such a thing exist? I need a telemetry capable receiver for my T14SG and don't want to drop $100 on a receiver if there's a significantly cheaper option out there that I haven't run across.

Thanks for the fasst reply (ha)! Unfortunately that's a FASST receiver, not FASSTest. I've bought several Orange RX FASST receivers and they work great. I'm hoping there's a similar (i.e. cheaper) option that's FASSTest compatible.

Default Only Futaba

Only options are Futaba R7003SB and R7008SB are Fasstest (Telemetry Capable)

The 7003 works well for single wire sbus commands to FBL systems and costs $40 less than the 7008.

Assuming you are using them on a 14SG or similar radio that is... Futaba does offer telemetry on the lower end FHSS-T radios as well. Those receivers are not compatible with the 14SG telemetry even though the 14SG can link up with the FHSS receivers.

There is actually an in-between option now, the 7006. It's a 6 channel SBUS receiver and it's the same price as the 7003.

Strangest thing. The 7006 is actually cheaper than the 7003 everywhere except the States
