Important Announcement

We have seen several e-mails from Chinese vendors offering the Spektrum AR6100 and AR6100E at very low prices. These receivers are not original Spektrum receivers, but are counterfeit copies, not manufactured by Spektrum, and do not use our specified components.

Consumers are cautioned to make sure they are purchasing original Spektrum receivers in original packaging. Chinese Vendors have the ability to make very visually similar copies, so unfortunately there is no way to easily distinguish between originals and copies. The best thing that consumers can do is to make sure they are purchasing their products from Modelflight or other established hobby and model shops who buy directly from OMP, the exclusive Spektrum Distributor for Australia. All original Spektrum receivers in Australia will carry the C Tick approval sticker.

In addition, some websites are now offering receivers that claim compatibility with Spektrum or DSM2 technology. Horizon Hobby and the Spektrum team have not certified or authorized any other company’s claim of compatibility.

Horizon Hobby (and it’s associated partners,) disclaims any and all liability for any damages or claims arising from the use of any counterfeit Spektrum receiver or any receiver claiming (DSM or) DSM2 compatibility. The consumer assumes all liability for using such products.

Horizon Hobby (Spektrum) and OMP are always striving to ensure your enjoyment in the hobby by developing and producing products to a tight standard of quality and performance. Don’t put your enjoyment at risk by utilizing imitation or untested generic components that could jeopardize the safety of your flying experience.
