Quote from: bobt on January 12, 2015, 14:08:53 pmThat is not actually the case. I have a set of in-ear monitors which cost in excess of £700 ten years ago. From two years ago it became illegal to use them as the frequency was needed for 4G. I still use them, but could be prosecuted. So no grandfather's rights there.

Quote from: Loopdreams on January 12, 2015, 13:49:45 pmYeah, I remember there were a whole raft of reasons why 2.4Ghz was a bad idea, how the whole band would become unusable in a couple of years, how it would never catch on with serious aeromodellers and how 35Mhz and peg boards were just better. LOL.

Quote from: grayuk on January 13, 2015, 08:26:11 amHaving briefly scanned through the regs, I can not see anything that particularly indicates any specific radio that is effected.The only one I would consider may be impacted is the early non hopping Spektrum gear, this was always a sticking point with the EU regulators.FASST is just a patented variant of FHSS, with preamble Ariel selection, which helps eliminate packet loss, so as far as the regs are concerned it should be considered as FHSS.I shall be talking to Futaba today to get the full SP, but remember, these regs are not new, anyone in the industry has pre warning of up coming changes. If there was an impact, then Futaba, JR etc. would have know and prepared. Also, the BMFA would have been informed and there has been nothing from them, my feeling is that this is just a 'loose end' tie up, mainly directed at Chinese imports that are non compliant.Paul G
Quote from: onewinglow on January 13, 2015, 11:56:59 amThe main changes to the regs EN300 1.8.1, If transmitting at over 10mW (RC is 100mW approx) requires LBT (Listen Before Transmit) and MU (Medium Utilisation) of no more than 10%. Futaba FASST (original) does not LBT and has a MU of 25%. AFAIK Modules and older Tx are not updateable due to hardware constraints. The effects on other protocols; Spektrum, newly made/imported Tx will no longer be backward compatible with DSM2 as they will not be allowed to transmit DSM2 as it is non complient. So, if you have 'Bind and Fly' and/or DSM2 Rx look after your existing Tx!. FrSky, updates are available for some Rx (own and compatibles) and some Tx modules, but the last time I checked nothing for the D series. Oh, don't forget this is just for the EU and not the rest of the world so there is always the possibility, in the future, of buying from abroad. Although, you risk the items being confiscated by the customs if they inspect the package.

Quote from: fly-navy on January 13, 2015, 13:00:09 pmOh Lordy this is all too technical for me I have the 2 way FrSky DFT modules in my FF9 tx's and have mostly V8FR-11 8 rx's in my models, am I legal or is it another cash splash out or shall I get my PCM rx's out of storage and put original modules back in
