Default cheap futaba 2.4 micro receivers

Does anyone make a cheap micro receiver 2.4 GHz for futaba? If so where can you buy them and the approximate cost. I bought 2 of the new Fast Orange receivers and they are junk. I live in N.E. Ohio

I have 6 of the Fr Sky TFR6 receivers.
They are FASST compatible, 7 channel, dual antenna Rx's
They work great in my Futaba 8FG
You can get them for $22 to $28 each
Try Value Hobby in USA

BP Hobbies has a new Futaba FAAST/S-BUS compatible receiver from Corona.  $45 if memory serves.

I don't think you want the Corona or Orange receivers......
I have heard of problems with both.
Also, I am not sure they are "full range" receivers (do they have dual antennas?? if not.... park flyer ONLY!!)
