The XPS 2.4Ghz modules are listed as 100mw (max power) with an approximate 60mw from the transmitter final amplifier (the rest must be gain from the antenna). So in theory you should be safe. Can you safely use a wireless network card in a laptop computer? They should be about the same power level. I think Futbab has the specifications listed for their 2.4Ghz stuff, but I'm not sure about the Spektrum/JR stuff.

The choice between the DX6 and DX7 might also come down to the DSM not being supported with the Spektrum modules, only DSM2 (if my memory is correct).

I would definitely send a message to Futaba, Spektrum, and XPS to get their more informed opinion on the RF level matter. It might come down to you buying from the only one that replies!

edit I just remembered that the XPS user manual says you can reduce the power down to 10mw from the transmitter, so not more than about 25mw from the antenna.Should be fine for park flyers and some heli use.
