AnyLink: Fly a model with Tactic brick with Spektrum TX, etc

I spotted this over in the micro RTF forum so thought I'd post it here too for those who might not see it.
http://www.tx-ready.com/
It looks like Hobbico is going to sell a module that can plug into just about any TX, such as a Spektrum DX7 or DX6i and control models with the Flyzone Tactic brick. This means I can fly Parkzone or Flyzone planes with my DX7, or my kids can do this with their DX6i's. If I choose to build a scratch built plane and use the new Tactic brick with rotary servos I can now control it with a computer programmable transmitter. I'm very happy to see this unit.

Looks like this is going to be all the buzz. I'm interested, but I'd like to at least see the MSRP ($).

AnyLink alone is priced at $24.99 or thereabouts.

If you buy one of the 12 Tx-R airplanes shown on this site: http://www.tx-ready.com you can have one for FREE.

I have a question about the Anylink. It plugs into the trainer port. But does it turn off the main transmitter RF or does it just transmit in parallel?

Anyone know if it has a CE approval so the Flyzone models can become available in Europe?

Wow! I didn't even know that the DX8 can even use a module! That's great news!

It's not a typical RF module as such. It plugs into the trainer port.

It is a RF TX module and therfore it needs to be compliant with RF regulations.

It is actually a transmission module and is compliant with all US regulations. I believe it is certified for most of Europe as well.

True what I meant it is not a typical module mechanically where it fits into the back of the TX.

Dave, does it somehow tell the main TX to stop transmitting on whatever it's frequency is?
