DX10T Service Bulletin


If you own a Spektrum DX10t Transmitter (SPM2800US/SPM2800) please read the following bulletin:

It has come to our attention that a small number of DX10t transmitter antennas were crumpled during the installation of the antenna cover at the factory. This can cause poor radiation patterns from the transmitter, which in turn may affect signal range. While the number of affected transmitters is very low, we believe the risks of flying with a crimped antenna are significant enough to warrant inspection of all DX10t transmitter antennas.

This bulletin outlines the procedure DX10t transmitter owners should use to inspect the condition of their antenna and, if necessary, take corrective action. If it is needed, Horizon Hobby will provide antenna tubing free of charge.

To see if a transmitter is affected, DX10t owners can open the right-hand side door on the front of the transmitter to check the PID number. Affected PID numbers are: xx202B, xx203B, xx204B, xx205B, xx206B, xx207B, xx208B, xx209B, xx210B, xx211B, xx212B, xx301B, and xx302B.


NOTICE: Transmitters with Product ID numbers (PIDs) ending in HA, LH, ON or CM have been checked before shipment and are not included in this product bulletin.

 

 

Antenna Tube Installation Instructions

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Pull the antenna cover from the antenna base to expose the antenna
wire. Carefully straighten the antenna, being careful not to disconnect the
antenna from the RF module.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Cut and install a section of 31mm long antenna tube (SPM6824 can be
used for the tubing and is available upon request by contacting the
appropriate office or distributor listed below) onto the antenna.

 

 

3. Reinstall the antenna cover onto the antenna base using care to
prevent bending the antenna wire at the base during installation.

 

If you have any concerns, or rather we conduct the inspection and effect the repair if necessary, or you would like the tubing please contact us.
