I seem to recall something about the later production units being DSMX while the earlier were DSM2.
I'm pretty sure telemetry was available with dsm2, IE the tm1000 supported dsm2 and dsmx. It actually surprised me that as3x was on a dsm2 receiver as well.

Anyway, you can check it. If you are getting telemetry your radio should also tell you if you are binding in dsm2 or dsmx. Try to rebind and see what you get. It will be dsm2.

"Recommended Transmitter: Spektrum ™ DSM2™/DSMX® with dual-rates and expo (DX4e and up)"
I have two of them. Both are DSM2, and yes both say DSM2/DSMX on the side of the box, but show its a DSM2 unit on the front in the "specs" and in the manual "DSM2 6Ch Ultra Micro AS3X Receiver BL-ESC (EFLU4864)" (that part is right above the part you quoted...)

As for the recommended transmitter, at the time ALL dsmx transmitters also supported DSM2, so they were just letting you know either would work.

There has been lots of discussion on this issue in the transmitter threads. But Horizon Hobby must sell a lawful product. The real problem is that the EU has made the use of DSM2 illegal, hence the limitation in your DX7.

So, as disappointing as it is, you can't blame Horizon.

yea not HH's fault at all, The EU changed their regs, and the new regs dont allow DSM2. If you can find a radip imported before 2015, you can still use it, but they cant import anything else with DSM2.m Its not the use of DSM2 that illegal, its the importation of DSM2 products. Anything already there is grandfatherd in... for now....
If you look at the eu version of horizons site http://www.horizonhobby.co.uk/ , they do show all the radios as dsmx only, though I dont know how thy could really make it clear other than a ginat banner headline.... The .com version is for the usa, where DSM2 is still allowed....
