Default European radios (like DX18t) compatibility

Guys,

is any buddy familiar with the european radios, in particular with the DX18t. I have a trip to Europe and would considering to buy one.
Is it compatible with the US spektrum receivers?

regards

Yes, the DX18T will work with all US Spektrum receivers. We do not have different receivers for different regions, like a competitor does.

Diniz Estevez is your importer. If you have trouble, you will need to send it back to Germany.

Probably on the German site. http://www.horizonhobby.de

If you're familiar with the DX18G2, the DX18T is the same functionality in a tray format.

From what I understand, the current Spektrum radios being sold in Europe only support DSMX.
If you have older DSM2 receivers that are not DSMX compatible, they will not work.

All radios in Europe have a limit of 100mW. In US mode they put out up to 200mW.

The French oddities went away a few years ago. EU is now the same everywhere for 2.4gHz.

But what does this mean in practical terms? Reduced range?

And many thanks to all of you to answer my questions.

Yes, but even 100mW is way beyond what you can see your model.
