Default Help understanding Futaba compatible rxs

Hi. I have a Futaba tx. 3PM-MX and a lot of different rtr cars/trucks Ive collected over the past 30 years. This Tx is great and Id like to consolidate a couple of cars to just one controller. But the rx is $80-90 which is crazy. Can anyone tell me how to know what receivers would work with it? Ive googled and found a few maybe Ill link below that have FASST. Also, could I just use a plane rx? The prices are lower on Futabas air receivers. Thank you much!

All you have to do is look for a is an RX that has at least the number of channels that you want to use and is a 2.4gig, FASST compatible receiver.
any channels beyond what your TX puts out signals for just ignore. Plane or surface makes no difference in 2.4 Gig. You might look at the antenna
arrangement, I know that some of my surface RXes for my FHSS radios have internal antennas to make them more convenient to set up in a car
or boat. I have had good results with some of the HK compatible receivers. You might also check out Motion RC, I think they might have some
compatible RXes.

A lot of the FASST compatible Rx will have in the description if it's for surface use as well.

I can't give up my 3PM either.
