Itís been brought to my attention that there is a small Manufacturer of these radio equipment by the name of Xtreme Link
That has been selling Modules and receivers for various radioís as a 3rd party add on which will make your standard transmitter into 2.4 gigahertz.
As of now based on my immediate knowledge, there has been 4 of these devices used at the basin with poor results.
The last one resulted in a lockout crash on Woodley Blvd.
This issue has been forwarded to AMA also and they are looking into it
These radios will be banned at the LA-Jets Summer event. I would like to see them not used at the Basin until
This is only for the manufacturer listed above. It is not for Spektrum or the new Futaba or JR.
You will find a draft of different incidents below.
Please forward me your opinion.
All the Best

WOW! that seems like a pretty negative email, I am not criticising, but as a club president myself I would never go into a public forum and blast a vendor, or a person for that matter, very poor form. I would suggest that in the future you start with private emails to the vendor, or simply state that xps is not allowed at this fly in.
