Thanks for the effort but no, it's nothing I didn't already know. Used Spektrum for several years. Just wanted to break out of the canned programming paradigm and it seemed fine when MAAC documents indicated FCC or IC was acceptable. Now the documents have all changed.

Spektrum is on my short list of choices if there is no traction getting FrSky or Graupner to step up and seek ISED compliance.

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

David, if it means that much to you, I can give you the contact for Eva at FRsky, all they need is a local representative and they'll send you all the documentation you need to get the unit IC Certified. This is the way it was done for Sanwa many years ago for the Airtronics Radios. Our friend Websolution was the one that held the cert for Airtronics in Canada.

There is always a way, and if you negotiate properly, you'll end up with a nice IC certified setup for all your current and future needs, have you seen the new S6R receiver? Nice stuff!!

Just sayin.

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

It certainly does mean that much to me. I am quite heavily invested in FrSky and less the Graupner so the FrSky would be the preferred course to take. I very much want the flexibility available that is unique to OTx coupled with the hardware of FrSky.

I have been in contact recently with FrSky rep on RCG and exchanged some information but I would be VERY interested in learning how to put through a certification.

The S6R was next on my shopping list.

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

I guess both sides of the border are complaint based enforcement even though it would only take a minimum of research to find out what is going on.

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

Now that link is putting it in no uncertain terms about getting radio equipment certified.....now to get the Canadian government to get a similiar statement sent out that would surely help the industry clean things up and everybody would be happy. Thanks Dave.

I'm guessing it would take a big complaint from some manufacturer/distributer to get ISED to sit up and take notice?

I wonder if the reason they acted is HK is actually putting FCC logo on stuff without actually getting any certification. I mean it's obviously fake, as proper labeling has the FCC ID number, not just the logo.

Would they care so much if somebody is just selling the stuff without making any false claims of certified?

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

Yes, you see so many transmitting or potential transmitting items with FCc with the little c inside the big C and people assume that it is FCC certified.

The Orange stuff I guess that was being sold by HK USA division coming in and being sold raised the ire of those companies that complied with registering ; and can't blame them.. I had a link one time that showed just what is done for getting certification and the number of high res pictures of the circuit boards was unreal. Anyone changing so much as a single resister or a capacitor negated the FCC certification. If I remember correctly even back with 27 MHz and 72 MHz ,that anyone retuning a transmitter and receiver system had to be listened to do the work ; much like a ham radio operator having to have a ham licence to assemble or build and operate their own systems.

I know that when radio transmitting devices were imported into Canada they had to have the DOC ( at the time) certification number on each device before it was even released into Canada or else. That's when everyone played by the rules .

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

And to top it all off. Even if some of the Citrus Brand items did get their ISED certs, MAP 07 clearly states: "It is recommended that the manufacturers be consulted before plugging in." in reference to "Compatibility of R/C Systems of Different Manufacturers and Different Vintages".......

......and ya just know if asked they would not say "Great Idea!, use the Citrus Brand!"

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

Despite all the regs this fight will never be won by the big guys and IC/FCC. Now there is a 4-in-1 module that works with FRSKY, SPEKTRUM DSM2 DSMX, one Futaba protocol, SLT, etc. etc.
Just goes to show the manufacturers still haven't learned to play well together. We had 72Mhz working with modules and TX's for all brands. Then they went PCM and all was custom. Now they go 2.4 and try to limit our purchases to their brands. Good luck to them but they lose in the end.
There are a lot more RC people that are not MAAC than are and complaint based regs aren't going to convict them all.

BTW stegl it's a little old but Mark is not the Spektrum chair, he is the Spectrum Chair
I'm sure you knew that. Maybe just a little dig about the Spektrum articles he used to refer to in his writeups?
