I'm not going to argue the point technically - I am sure you are correct that there is a decent chance the D8 RXs are capable of being compliant with the current ETSI regs. The problem (which I have pointed out a number of times before to UK sellers) is that none of these RXs have a valid Certificate of Conformity from Frsky since 2015, and as I understand it that is a mandatory requirement to be sold in the EU.
Clever stuff Mike, though it does look fairly involved process to flash them compared with the std process. I will keep this in mind, but as I still have an old D8 module lying around I think it will be able to keep my oldest RXs in use for many years to come via that even once Frsky abandon D8. I might by a spare XJT too to une on ACCST v1.x as it seems v2 is still somewhat buggy!

The first flash is involved, but I now include a bootloader so any updates are then easily possible without opening up the Rx.
I also wonder about the RM Tx (and the Jumper ones), since they use a multi-protocol module that includes FrSky D8 and DSM2 protocols, neither of which are compliant with the current ETSI regs.
