Are these actual Spektrum AR8000 RX without the warranty from Spektrum? We know Spektrum products are made in China.

Has anyone used these unbranded items?

I am not seeing this on Horizon's website.

So, this is a knock off right?

They are discontinued, so they don't show up under a normal search on the Horizon site.

I agree with Juan. Not worth the risk.

Sometimes Horizon will post a bulletin indicating that one of their products like this is being cloned and to avoid it and how to spot the indicators of it being cloned.

I wouldn't risk it either.

Just a theory....if spektrums are made in china.....could the chinese push out the same product from the same manufacturing place to sell then unbranded?

Chinese do not give a damn about intellectual property rights.
