You dont band the use of a tx because X amount of user have issues with certain RX.
That's not how thing work in the world. Glad I fly outside of clubs. I have full control on my stuff and if something goes wrong nobody is going to get since I am alone.
Ideally, yes I agree with you on the ban of the receiver and not the transmitter but at the same time this receiver works with every other Spectrum & JR transmitter that we know of. Just not reliably with the DX8.
Unfortunately that is how things work in the real world at times. Have you never seen or heard when the FAA/NTSB shuts down the complete use of different aircraft lines while an investigation takes place?
I have no problem with your situation. It's different however when you have 20-30 people at a field who are doing different things and not always watching the aircraft in the sky. An out of control aircraft (especially a heli) can do a lot of damage quickly.
