OrangeRx R1220XLR Review Part 1

This is a third version of Orange receivers which support telemetry data. First version was very bad , I could get telemetry data only up to 15 meters from me while flying my airplane.
Soon they released V2 of telemetry receivers claiming that telemetry data range is up to 500 meters. Well, I bought that one too. Telemetry range was improved but not as claimed. I could get maximum of 80 to 100 meters of telemetry data.
I have to point out that receiving signal range for control of the aircraft never was an issue either in V1 or V2 telemetry receivers, only telemetry data range.
This one is, so called, Long Range receiver, with control range up to 3.5 kilometres and telemetry data range up to 1 kilometre, at least that is what specification says. 
And here is Part 1 of review. Unfortunately, at this time there is only 12 channel receiver available , either with S.BUS or CPPM output. I hope that if this performs well, HobbyKing will make 6, 7, 8 and 9 channell versions.
