The Inside rear cover full page advert by Horizon Hobbies UK for the Spektrum "Theory X" quad racer both pictures and lists an illegal in the UK Video Transmitter, SPMVT200 of 200mW.

Hopefully, they will actually sell it with a UK legal one like their 25mW SPMVT025EU.

Or are they actually going to sell a product nobody in the UK can legally use??

If supposedly "responsible" companies like HH cannot make the effort to proof read their output so as not to mislead and misinform, with the current attention from legislators looking to see if we ARE a responsible law-abiding body of people, RC flying is definitely doomed!!

Without any correcting information/comment, I suspect RCM&E will additionally appear to many to condone/add credence to this Ad, so maybe time for a quick rebuttal/correction, David!!??

Young Shaun Garrity is getting through to me - the Flugboat is very tempting, and I already have a Galahad ready to start on. With today's weather the Flugboat might just take priority.

Indeed. Their UK website listing features the same error too...

Wrong thread Bob?

Matty no, Dave's got the wrong magazine laugh, the Horizon ad is in the December RCMW, the Flugboat is on page 84 of the December RCME

Yep, RCM&E has a full page inside cover ad for Mx Roxxy motors, I never checked that as I thought this was the usual monthly mag thread. Maybe a mod could split the two posts off to a thread with a corrected title?

Dave is absolutely correct in pointing this out.

However RC ModelWorld also sells in USA so maybe that equipment is legal there and that's why it is shown?

Love the Skyleader article. "The Skyleader that never was"

If only Stu was still around to see it, he'd be made up

Exact same ad was in the November RCM&E, I suspect Horizon got it from their US head office and didn't change the spec. In view of Hobbyking getting sanctioned in the US for selling non-FCC certified gear you'd have thought they would be on top of this.

Once again it's tempting me to do something with my old Horizon 8 transmitter case, I even have a couple of D series Futaba modules around - must resist surprise.

January 2017 RCM+E looks another corker,

But what happened to the Chris Golds massive Fiesler Storch being the free plan? Probably to big at over 100 ins!

Oh well still RCM+E is the number one model aviation publication in my mind!

Cheers Steve smileyyes
