Radio Transmitters for Model Aircrafts Recalled by Horizon Hobby Due to Impact and Laceration Hazards

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Spektrum DX6i Radio Transmitters used with model aircrafts

Units: About 15,000

Hazard: The defective radio transmitters can cause model airplanes and helicopters they control to fall from the sky while in flight and crash into bystanders or property. The propellers can also spin unexpectedly injuring a person standing too close or working on the aircraft. This poses impact and laceration hazards to consumers and a risk of property damage.

Incidents/Injuries: Horizon Hobby is aware of two injuries that resulted in multiple cuts to the hands.

Description: The recalled Spektrum DX6i radio transmitters are used to control model airplanes and helicopters. "Spektrum DX6i" is printed on the front of the transmitters. The transmitters were sold individually or as part of three different ready-to-fly model aircraft. Item numbers and product date codes included in this recall are listed below. The item number is located on the product's packaging. The date code is located on a label inside the transmitter's battery compartment or on the underside of the battery compartment door.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled radio transmitters and contact Horizon Hobby to arrange to have the transmitters shipped free of charge for inspection and repair.
