Hi mate, can you share your thoughts about your FASST compatible receiver? Does it hasve rssi output? How far can you fly without failsafe issues? Many thanks!

Hey mwm8X8, the RX works good with my Futaba T14SG in FASST-MULT mode. All channels (14) will be transmit in S.BUS, in datasheet they written only 8ch.
On rcgroups you can find a thread about IRangeX FX801 receiver, it looks exactly like FM800 Pro and they had found an RSSI on the chip.
I had tested it with BF 3.3.0 on this FC but whitout good results and so i removed this wire. I didn't test it anymore.
About the range, i only flown on Tiny Whoop already on sight without failesafe.
FM800 (non Pro) has short antenna wires on board exept detachable antenna.
I think the range is more than enought with this receiver.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
