I changed my UK sourced DX6i to the US power setting and never had any range issues. Bought a 2nd hand DX7 as needed more model memories and had a fly away. Now have a DX8 (lost my DX7 in a fire) but UK sourced versions don't allow users to change to the higher US power settings. So far, so good but not really tested at any distance as still building up my fleet (also lost 20+ models in fire)

Andy, Thanks. I've also been reading this up the past few days. I flew my repaired Bixler today with US power setting and she was flawless after I got all the trims dialed in. With all the tapes/glue/coins to correct CG, she is now just over 1000g. Still has good power but does not glide so well with 0 throttle. I'm amazed by how tough this plane is. I'm a true believer that you can't kill the Bixler!!
