Product Recall: Spektrum DX6i transmitters with date codes
807E, 808E, 809E, 810E, 811E, 812E, and 901E

Attention DX6i Users

On January 30, 2009, Horizon Hobby, Inc. issued a service bulletin for Spektrum DX6i transmitters due to a concern of potential issues with stick potentiometers. Consumers were strongly advised to conduct a test to see if symptoms of these potential issues were present.

After closely monitoring the situation, Horizon has determined that we need to physically inspect all DX6i transmitters with date codes containing 807E, 808E, 809E, 810E, 811E, 812E, and 901E, including those ending in "US", :"UK", or "DE". The date code will be found inside the battery compartment.

When using a Spektrum AR6110 or AR6110E receiver with an E-flite G110 or G90 gyro, the gyro may not initialize (set) during startup. To verify the gyro is initialized make sure the LED on the gyro is solid RED before flying. Click Here for further details.

The Blade 400 3D is the first ready-to-fly mini heli to come equipped with Spektrum’s advanced DX6i 2.4GHz DSM2™ 6-channel programmable aircraft system. Besides providing freedom from frequency restrictions and interference, the DX6i’s DSM2 technology offers other unique advantages like faster control response and innovative features such as ServoSync™. ServoSync automatically resequences transmitted data so mixed servos receive their pulses at the same time so you can fly extreme 3D aerobatics with absolute precision. The system also includes the feather-light, 4.4-gram Spektrum AR6100e Microlite receiver.
The Blade 400 3D will give intermediate to advanced heli pilots a ready-to-fly experience like no other. It comes out of the box 100% factory built and equipped with state-of-the-art features like brushless power, digital servos, a heading lock gyro, CCPM control and symmetrical blades. It’s also big enough that you can fly outdoors in breezier conditions that would ground smaller micro helis. And because it’s flight tested at the factory, no pre-flight setup is required. The Blade 400 3D is ready for everything from smooth hovering to 3D aerobatic flying as soon as you finish charging the battery.
