The Spektrum Team has been investigating sporadic reports from DSMX transmitter owners using their products in DSM2 mode. We have discovered that in some rare instances, DSMX equipped transmitters with the Product ID (PID) within this bulletin, may have a backwards compatibility issue that could cause a "hold" with the following superseded DSM2 receivers: AR500, AR6100, AR6100E, AR6110, AR6110E, AR6200 and AR6300.
Note: This bulletin does not apply to DSM2 only transmitters.

Nothing! Everything you need is included in the box.
To add optional rudder control, one extra servo is needed
The most successful fighter of WWII, the P-51D Mustang still thrills thousands today in air shows and air races around the world. Now anyone can experience Mustang thrills on a smaller scale with this fully-aerobatic, brushless-powered Ready-to-Fly reproduction from ParkZone. And getting it airborne is about as simple as it gets. Everything you need to fly is included in the box. Just attach the wing and tail, charge the battery, and you're ready to fly.
Victory rolls, Cuban-8s, Immelmans—ParkZone’s P-51D can do them all thanks to its powerful 480 brushless outrunner motor and semi-symmetrical airfoil. The paint scheme and decals are an authentic reproduction of the actual markings from “Gun Fighter,” a P-51D that regularly flies in airshows around the country. You even have the option of adding a 4th rudder channel for extra maneuverability (requires an additional servo, sold separately).
