Use RBR50 as a satelite

Hi,

I do have a RBK50 (with RBR50 and RBS50) and want to extend with a RBS50.
But can't purchase new RBS50. 
So I a thinking of buying Wifi 6 router (RBK852) and use the RBR50 as a satelite of the RBR850)
Is that supported, will it work?
Thanks in advance for your reply.

Not as a satellite. you can hardwire it in and set it up as its own access point

Thanks for your quick reply.

But is it also possible to use the RBR50 as a satelite of a new Netgear Orbi router?

Best way or cheapest? 
I've seen several of the "kits' on amazon for renewed. 

I've bought them before just for the satellites as it was cheaper to buy a kit and sell the router than it was to just buy a satellite.
