Soos ek verstaan sal die amptelike verklaring in die volgende SAMAA nuus aan almal bekend gemaak word. Wees geduldig.

Good day,

Is there any news update on approved transmitters? we would like to supply our customers
with the right thing, had a very bad experience with a Turnigy 6XR this weekend (bad range), want to be sure it
would not happen again, would rather sell the right thing with no comebacks! Is the JR XG6 /7 a better option and will it be approved?

Regards

Lees die nuutste SAMAA nuus.

As handelaar moet jy, die handelaar, steeds radio stelle wat jy invoer om te verkoop laat goedkeur by ICASA. Jy kan nie stelle invoer en verkoop op grond van ander handelaars se goedkeuring nie.

ICASA goedkeuring gaan nie bepaal of die radio stel goed of sleg is nie, slegs dat die spesifikasie en werking binne die bepaling van die wet is.

Vanuit die SAMAA tydskrif, SAMAA News Issue 3 of 2014

ICASA Type Approval Information

This relates to model radio control equipment as operated by SAMAA
members for Hobby, Recreational, and Sporting purposes.

Definition: RADIO EQUIPMENT – Relevant to the control of a radio control
model aircraft or rotorcraft.

During discussions between ICASA and SAMAA, the following was agreed
relating to type approval of radio equipment as used by SAMAA members:
• The ICASA type approval scheme is primarily aimed at Importers,
Distributors, and Dealers selling equipment for the purpose of financial
gain. This became apparent as there has been a new regulation
gazetted, Volume 578, No 36785, 26 August 2013. Members must
ensure that equipment bought locally from Importers, Distributors, and
Dealers does have type approval stickers attached.
• Radio equipment imported by individuals for private use, specifically for
Recreational and Sporting purposes, does not have to be submitted for
formal ICASA type approval, but the equipment used still needs to
comply with the relevant ICASA Type Approval Specifications.
• SAMAA will obtain from ICASA, the relevant specifications that are
applicable to the equipment as used by SAMAA members in South Africa
for private use in their Recreational, Hobby, and Sporting environment.
(We have already requested these and are awaiting their response).
• The onus for ensuring that the equipment does comply with the relevant
ICASA Type Approval Specifications, will rest on the owner/user/of such
equipment.
• Operating radio equipment that does not comply with ICASA Type
Approval Specifications, will void SAMAA insurance cover.

This is an official statement of the SAMAA Compliance Committee and this
statement will stand until further notice.

Fantastic, so who will monitor and control this. If I do not have the STICKER then I have no need for SAMAA as I will be flying without the insurance, which is what the clubs insist that you have. Will this be checked by ???? at the clubs, competitions and fly inns?

Just another regulation and opportunity for the insurances company not to pay a claim.

Vanuit die mond van iemand wat behoort te weet het ek gehoor dat in die geval van eise wat ontstaan het die versekering nie eers kyk na watter toerusting gebruik is nie. Omdat jy geregtig is om self in te voer solank dit aan die spesifikasie voldoen of 20 jare ou toerusting te gebruik wat jy lankal nie aankoop fakture voor het nie, is daar geen manier om te verifieer wat die toedrag van sake is nie. Verder word dit bemoeilik omdat baie van die kommersiële invoerders en her verkopers wat reeds goedkeuring en 'n sertifikaat van ICASA ontvang het, nie die plakkers van ICASA ontvang het nie en dit dus nie op die radio stelle kan voorkom nie. Die versekering hanteer elke saak ter goedertrou. So, dit kom daarop neer dat as jy ‘n SAMAA lid is, jy by ‘n SAMAA geregistreerde vliegklub gevlieg het en geen doelbewuste en nalatige risiko geneem het wat deur jou mede klub lede aangemeld word nie, is jy gedek en behoort positief na ‘n eis gekyk word.
