SD-10G receiver question

Just bought an SD-10G and heard from local club members yesterday that the 7-channel receiver (which came with the unit) is known to have problems in "crowded" fields. e.g. they were saying at the NATS earlier this year a number of planes got shot down that were using the Airtronics 7-ch receiver. I have model 92674.

Should I be worried?

Thanks in advance.

I flew that receiver at the Southwst Clasic with no issues. There were at times 30 ships in the air, god knows how many on the ground powered up, no problems.

That said, I did upgrade to the 10 ch receiver seemed like a prudent thing to do.

This problem was supposedly tracked to one bad transmitter, which has been repaired or replaced.
