Hi Paul,

Problem is that the first ones over were probably bog-standard ones. Its only since Graupner became the distributor and identified the problem (AFAIK) . Safest thing to do is to contact HHUK to check.

hi tony, i'll give them a ring tomorrow as my radio is probably from the first or second batch to come into the uk.

i assume this means some range will be lost in the process and possibly may not be suitable for full range in uk when they tweak the radio which no doubt will need to be sent back?

cheers

In theory there may be a slight reduction in range.

i'm sure glad i've went with the fasst system at this point with my 14mz as my main 2.4 solution.

cheers

Reports from German Pilots indicate that slight range reduction means half the range

The reports confirms my opinion that the US variant is not legal to use over here, but I'm quite convinced the new EU variant isn't either looking at the spectrum in the FCC reports and Paul Beards statement (100mW)...

With the mixed reports about XPS reliability (and the fact that their power is limited to) Fasst seems to remain the only legal solution for our side of the pond. I hope Futaba won't mess up the 12Z modules software or latency wise or I'll stick with 35MHz for at least another season
