Horizon Hobby Recalls Spektrum Receivers Used with Model Airplane Gliders Due to Risk of Injury
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Horizon Hobby Inc., of Champaign, Ill., is voluntarily recalling about 3,500 (in the United States) and 150 (in Canada) Spektrum Receivers. The receiver can lose contact with the model airplane glider's radio control while within normal radio range limits. If this happens, the glider can fall from the sky and hit consumers, posing a risk of injury.
