Many of our genuine receivers are made in China. Some in Taiwan. Some in Malaysia.
The fake receivers are the ones available from non-dealers, usually on banggood or ali express or ebay or a small-fry "dealer", usually at "too good to be true" prices. They're often packaged in non-Spektrum packaging, although some counterfeiters have now gone to copying our packaging as well, since so many figured out that to be a key way to tell them apart. The fakes have performance issues, often due to low-grade components. We've even found fake Cypress parts (Cypress makes the RF chips we use) on some of them, so some of the counterfeits are being built with parts that are counterfeits.
We have found counterfeits of all of our receivers except the latest Telemetry line (those with "T" on the end of the name).
If you want to get the real product, you need to buy from an authorized Spektrum dealer.
