DX7 Type Approval

Message from Dave Armatage

Hi Guys

Just to let as many as possible know that on the 26th of April I picked up the Type Approval certificate for the DX7 radio from ICASA.(Independant Communications Authority of South Africa)The DX7 is now finally type approved for model flying use in South Africa

And a question from Wessie at Clowns Hobbies

Hi Dave

Great news!
Just a question - is it just approved for "model flying" or is it for "general RC use".

Is it therefore illegal to use a DX7 to say, control a RC car or sailboat (As I am fully aware that this is what is currently happening)

Not trying to start a flame war here, please gents, just trying to establish exactly what is legal.

I'm sure Dave means the 2,4GHz system is type approved and not just the DX7. Futaba has also launched their 6EX FASST system. Here is a link to Dee Tee Enterprises where the Dx7 and the 6EX can be seen
