I received email from KDS and was told that they have not certified it with FCC.

I have contacted them to see if I can get a module/receiver to include in my module-shootout feature.

It does look remarkably like a repackaged Assan system though

KDS does not seem like electronic manufacturer. Probablly it is OEM brand made by Assan. Will they divulge the information if asked? I will try.

If it was Assan then they would have the FCC certification needed, so it must be something else.

KDS 2.4 system in use


I am flying the KDS8 2.4 system in an F16 EDF Jet. No problems to this point and have had it at a great distance from me. The Transmitter module is installed in a Hitec Eclispe 7 transmitter.

I was hoping to find someone on this site who already used KDS.

Let us know further on your tests if you discover new things.

So far no problems at all. The one negative (and that is not a deal killer negative is the size of the reciever.) About the size of one of the last generation 72 MHZ receivers. Not a problem in the F16, or the aero cruizer by bp hobbies . And aircraft that size.

OK you can clear this up since you have a unit....does it have a FCC ID on the TX and the RX?

If you are in the US and it does not then the unit IS ILLEGAL.
