FCC Fines Hobbyking.... Analog FPV Transmitters

These seem to have been out of control for some time with very high outputs and missing agency approvals...

More expensive digital could be the next step.

I haven't ordered from HK in probably 16 months.... partially due to shipping costs. Not sure about others.

Hi Brian,

I placed an order with the HK USA warehouse about a month ago and my shipment (with some LiPos) arrived by FedEx with no issues. However their prices have increased, for some products significantly.

Here is a post by HK on their Facebook community page from a few hours ago:

Thanks for the update, Jeff! Those digital systems - I think from DJI - look really great but are expensive... $1170 + tax is not cheap at all!

I received this e-mail tonight from HK. In their typical tongue-in-cheek style, they are announcing a sale to raise money to pay the fine...
