Question

Hobbyking 2.4 7ch version 2 radio legal in Canada?


I was looking at getting this radio:
http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s..._%28Mode_2%29_
HobbyKing hk-7x 2.4ghz version 2 radio.

Some one at the local airfield said i may not be covered by the insurance as only brand name radios seem to be accepted. Ex: spektrum and futaba.

Is this correct?

I can find no evidence of any such requirement. This rumor has been around for a long time.

I have no direct answer to the question but I believe that if it is legal in the US (FCC certified) it should be legal in Canada.
It has nothing to to do with specific brand. Even if certain models of specific manufacturer are legal, other models of the same manufacturer may not be legal if they are missing proper certification.

"Some one at the local airfield " should be able to prove that as a fact or just go fly a kite (without r/c)
