On the other hand if it's used with the internal transmitter circuit I think it will need to be MAAA certified for club use first. (Not to be confused with C-tick, which will be needed to sell them from here in Oz).
I guess this will apply to the new Turnigy 9XR radio too, maybe that was on their mind when they made it a module radio...
9XR has no internal transmitter but I believe the new Frsky ones will do, running the new PXX protocol. This will need new MAAA approval. I dont think even the Frsky telemetry versions are on the approved list yet as it refers to the 'V' series receivers in the MOP.
I bought the original Spektrum DX6 DSM overseas and used that for maybe a year in Oz before it got approved. MAAA will either need to update the list or disappear into irrelevency as there are other insurance options.
