The pro's are it may be cheaper, and you could get a good deal.

The cons are:

1 You could get stuffed for import duty and then the pants down for the VAT plus handling fee's, which may make the deal less inviting.
2 You are then importing a set that may not be legal for use in UK, and therefore are you risking your insurance in the event of an accident?
3 You won't get any service or back up from the UK distributors, you will have to return it to asia shipping could be costly and time consuming.
4 It may not be the correct dsm2 it could be dsmj2 which means yo have to get all your receivers from asia as well
5 The charger the set comes with may be 110v instead of 240v
The list goes on..

Apart from that There should be no probs at all

Good luck

If you buy a non CE approved set it may be illegal in the UK. This could be due to different power outputs and frequency scanning techniques.

I recently saw a someone on ebay.co.uk selling a Japanese DSM-J set. I suspect he realised his mistake and tried to offload it onto the unsuspecting. Apart from anything else, where would you buy additional receivers as DSM-2 UK receivers are not compatible.

My final consideration would be where you use it. If you join a club that is switched on or go to a fly in where they check radios you will be told you can't use it.

In summary the pros are that it's cheaper and the con is that it's illegal and you shouldn't use it.

LOL - I see that Busher beat me to it. Manchester must be the place for radio advice.

Hi jimsim,
I looked in to sourcing a DSX9 from abroad about 18 months ago but the money saved would not have outweighed the problems already stated above.
You should also look at this-

The Ce sticker alone won't make it UK legal. It may still have a different power rating that would make it non uk legal.

You may be ok with this set but you cuold be buying trouble, you will have to way that up and decide whether the money saved is worth the gamble.

Good luck

Even the early DX7s brought into this country through coshure outlets were illegal due to the power ratings being too high. I later got caught out with an offer on an X9303, so you should be sure of it's legality before parting with any dosh.
