My opinion and only my opinion follows:
I think i hate the spectrum system because a few years ago they marketed low end systems (6 channels etc) at a price of a Royal Evo 12 and the capabilities of a toy Tx. Their system is outdated, expensive and missing a lot of things in the tx area. I have bought nearly all rc Transmitter models in the market (i was a maniac) spending more than 10000 dollars on them only to find out that the Taranis from Frsky or a 9x coupled with the sky9x board running OpenTx is on top even from a Futaba 1000 Mz :-D Lately i am running OpenLrs also and now i have complete control over the software i use.

there some bug?

You don't need two, use the Frsky ACCST system (actually developed by ACT

If you insist i think paparazzi autopilots can use two spectrum receivers which 
personally i don't trust at all.
Have a look in the wiki under Hardware -> autopilots

Dear all,

I would like to know if anyone has ever used 2 RC receivers on board for 
redundancy purposes? If yes, how can I do this? What I would like to do is 
while having one receiver connected to the autopilot via de PPM encoder, have 
another one that is not connected to autopilot but goes directly to the servos 
in case of autopilot failure.
