I was looking at the classifieds section and noticed the label on the exterior box of the Futaba 14MZ 2.4Ghz. The label says, "WARNING. This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm". So what is in this radio that is so harmful to our health?

I believe they even have to put that label on a jug of milk in Califronia.

"WARNING. This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm"

This includes the internal components such as the battery in the tx. Thus, it has to have this label because the components in the battery are known to cause cancer, same for the plastic in the tx. This is why they also have this label on a jug of milk! The plastic is known to cause cancer (if it is melted and inhaled).

On a side note I'm sure this is why CA was the 1st state to go Tango Uniform (toes up) in regards to the economy.

If someone stupid enough to chew on there battery, or open there transmitter and lick the insides, I don't think a "WARNING" labile will make a difference, what do these people think is inside this stuff, "sugar and spice and everything nice".

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

JR 12X = No cancer?
I also have the JR 12X 2.4Ghz radio and it doesn't have the cancer warning label printed anywhere. So is the JR 12X health-friendlier and not toxic as the Futaba 14MZ 2.4Ghz?

I am pretty sure that it only causes cancer in rats in the state of California.

I will admit, more things cause cancer in California than anywhere else. That is the main reason I stay out of there at all costs.

I have the Futaba 10C and it does NOT come with a health warnings. Therefore if you live in CA and want to fly Futaba then get a 10C.

The problem is only in california, not in other states or countries, so if you want to be safe go to fly in other state

The solder on the PC board probably has lead in it. I would say every state thinks lead is bad for you, especially when injested.

So, what do you expect from a state being run by a bodybuider/actor? At least he was the best in the world at something in his life...
...coulda left it at that. Such is LIFE!

The less a man makes a clarative statement, the less likely he is to look like a fool in retrospect.

cancer or not that is the ? all these lead vs no lead is a bunch of bs. the warning is there to protect the company. it has to be displayed when lead solder or lead parts are used or lead process is used on the equipment

The difference is the li-ion battery in the 14mz. The other radios mentioned have a nimh battery as standard equip. By the way, the sun causes cancer too!!!! Don't go flying, and stay indoors.
