Quote from: Loopdreams on January 06, 2015, 09:28:56 amSurely it just means you won't be able to buy any new transmitters, why would receivers be affected? And all new Spektrum TXs are DSMX anyway.
Quote from: TonyKing on January 06, 2015, 09:30:16 amIs there a link to these new reg's
Quote from: tomkfly on January 06, 2015, 09:49:53 amObviously Tx will not be available. What I meant was: if you already have a TX you might not be able to buy any additional RXs.All New Spectrum Transmitters available in the EU are DSMX, but I think, but am not sure, DSM2 is still available outside Europe.Also a lot of recievers are actually trancievers, so will have to comply with the new regs.Tom
Quote from: Cactus on January 06, 2015, 10:24:21 amso does this mean after swapping over to FRsky i won't be able to buy anymore D series RX's?
Quote from: satinet on January 06, 2015, 10:29:58 amI don't think you need to, The Xr series is the same price and can be bound to the old RF modules AFAIK. e.g the x4r is £1 cheaper than the d4r-11
Quote from: Cactus on January 06, 2015, 13:38:53 pmmaddening, you wait and wait so this stuff settles down and you're not caught out, buy hundreds of pounds worth of stuff only for the EU to s**t out some new stupid ideas that change nothing.seriously, how many muslim school children have died because a FRsky rx told it's owner the range is a bit low.
Quote from: onewinglow on January 06, 2015, 12:54:37 pmForgot to add that the new regs apply to anything that transmits and that includes telemetry Rx.
Quote from: pchristy on January 06, 2015, 17:53:39 pmLike most technical docs, reading the new regs is like wading through treacle! However, at a quick glance, it does look like if the transmitted power is less than 10 mW, it is exempt from a lot of the new regulations. I doubt very much if any receiver outputs more than 10mW......
Quote from: Loopdreams on January 06, 2015, 18:33:55 pmI guess not if you take the view that the link doesn't need to be as robust. A few missed data packets probably won't be as calamitous if it's just relaying battery voltage rather than control commands.
Quote from: PDR on January 06, 2015, 18:54:31 pmThe mere fact that you *can* do a thing does not inherently make it a good idea to do it...PDR
Quote from: tomkfly on January 06, 2015, 18:04:23 pmWouldn't it take almost the same as the Tx to send Telemetry data back at full range?Tom
QuoteIf you look at this document for frsky upgrades it seems you can still use the "old" rxs with the new update.
Quote from: Cactus on January 12, 2015, 11:56:38 amCheers now... what to do with my 2 ff8 modules. can they be updated??
Quote from: Cactus on January 12, 2015, 13:05:54 pmto work with the new receivers that won't listen to my stone age modules.
Quote from: PDR on January 12, 2015, 13:11:39 pmOne of the thinks that we warned about when 2.4G first came in for model use was that we don't "own" the band or the protocols, and that as a result they were subject to regulation & changes in which we (minority users) would have little or no say. This is an example of that situation.PDR
Quote from: nickr100 on January 12, 2015, 11:18:47 amcould someone clarify for me that i will no longer be able to buy rx's for my FASST transmitter, but im still allowed to use what ive got?? i kinda have to agree with cactus in that i have been using futaba 2.4 almost since it came out and have quite a bit of money tied up in my RC equipment. i have plenty of gear for just now but if i cant buy replacement rx as and when i need them, it will effectively make my tx obsolete and worthless as i will not be able to sell it on.am i understanding this right??
