Re: Spectrum AR6250

It's Spektrum actually and yes!

AR6250 DSM2 6-Channel Carbon Fuse Rx
AR6250 Product Recall
Attention Spektrum AR6250 Owners

Horizon has received reports of customers losing RF link when using AR6250’s within certain environments. After close monitoring and testing, Horizon has detected isolated issues with AR6250’s used in carbon fiber applications or in products containing highly reflective material. In these applications, Horizon has found that RF link issues may result in loss of communications.

Horizon has performed an analysis of the AR6250 receiver and is in process of testing a newly designed receiver.

All consumers who have AR6250’s are strongly encouraged to discontinue use and return these receivers to Horizon for a free upgrade, which should be available in August.

Please click here to initiate the service request and fill out the on-line form.

You may also initiate a service request by e-mailing the Horizon Product Support team. Please put “AR6250 Recall” in the subject line and include your shipping address and daytime phone number. Click here to e-mail your request to Horizon Product Support.

If you have any questions or would like to initiate a service request via telephone, please call our Product Support group at 1-877-504-0233.

For US and Canadian consumers, Horizon will pay for all ground shipping charges to and from our US service center. Customers outside the US and Canada should contact their retailer or local Spektrum distributor. Within Europe, please follow these links to our service centers in England or Germany. Australian consumers can follow this link.

We apologize for this inconvenience. Horizon disclaims all liability and warranties for any consumer failing to act upon this service advisory.

Re: Spectrum AR6250

Nice and for all those who have lost an aircraft due to this???????? You just had to know there would be no offer to compensate for your costs. Not that any of the others are any better.

"We discovered a fault with our product that may have cost the loss of a substantial cost outlay by our loyal customers. Sorry about your loss but if you fill out an online form and send in the offending part worth less than $100 we will fix/replace it with one that we should have originally sold you. As to your loss we apologize most profusely.” with much shaking of heads and wringing of hands.

Reminds me of that commercial with the kid collecting eggs and the guy pocketing them when he’s not looking. “Egg management fee.”

Re: Spectrum AR6250

Well this sucks. I lost a plane last week in a midair and my other plane is a carbon fibre glider with an AR6250 in it.
