I don't know were to put this it was in the local news paper under the consumer recall list whats up with this

SPEKTRUM RECEIVERS

ABOUT 3,500 SPEKTRUM RECEIVERS IN THE UNITED STATES AND 150 IN CANADA. THE RECEIVERS ARE USED WITH MODEL AIRPLANE GLIDERS AND WERE IMPORTED BY HORIZON HOBBY INC. OF CHAMPAIGN, ILL THE RECEIVER CAN LOSE CONTACT WITH THE MODEL AIRPLANE GLIDER'S RADIO CONTROL WHILE WITHIN NORMAL RADIO RANGE LIMITS. THE GLIDER CAN FALL FROM THE SKY AND HIT CONSUMERS. NO INJURIES HAVE BEEN REPORTED. CONSUMERS CAN CALL 877-504 0233 FOR MORE INFORMATION

Thank goodness it only happens to GLIDERS.

If we didn't have the press to guide us, where would we be.

It is interesting to see the numbers stated. I wonder if they are as poorly reported as the rest of the warning.

I'd bet that news report came from a reporter with time on his hands who had dorked his glider the day before.

Well at least they can't hit innocent bystanders. Wonder how they program it to seek out only the purchaser of the product?

LMAO......perhaps there is a tiny micro chip that imbeds itself into the purchaser when they first turn the switch on, which is why you should never buy a used Spektrum system
