O'Reilly Model Products—Spektrum AR6250 receiver

Identifying features

Model Number: AR6250
Approval Number: N12891

What are the defects?

Horizon has received reports of customers losing RF link when using AR6250’s within certain environments. After close monitoring and testing, Horizon has detected isolated issues with AR6250’s used in carbon fiber applications or in products containing highly reflective material. In these applications, Horizon has found that RF link issues may result in loss of communications.

What are the hazards?

In the event of a temporary loss of communications between the operator and the model, the operator will not be able to control the operation of the model for brief periods of time. This may result in injury to the user or bystanders if struck by the model aircraft.

What should consumers do?

All Australian consumers who have AR6250’s are strongly encouraged to discontinue use and return these receivers to OMP for a free upgrade receiver, which should be available in August.
