Default Reciever won't work

Hi, I have a question regarding a GWS Reciever

I have a futaba 4 channel Radio. I have one plane with a 4 channel reciever and work fine. I just bought a GWS 6 channel Naro Reciever. Model R-6NII/H. I put in a christal for the channel as the TX. However, it does not seem to work. I just wanted to find out, does it matter if I am using a 6 channel reveiver with a4 channel radio. Basically I was thinking if I use the first 4 channels with the reciever, it would not matter and work with the TX. If anyone, know can you let me know.

THanks All,
QWazzy

You should be able to use the 6 channel receiver just fine.

What crystal did you try in the GWS receiver? If you tried the crystal from Futabe receiver then that is your problem. The Most Futaba receivers are dual conversion and the GWS is a single conversion receiver.

Other than that it could be just a defective receiver or crystal.

Maybe you plugged the things in wrong. The GWS receivers don't have the slots that only let them plug in one way. Did you try reading the instructions?

QWazzy, here's another possible issue to consider. Does your GWS receiver have a little round sticker with an "F" or a "J" somewhere on it, or is there an F or J in the model name on the packaging? There should be--GWS makes receivers on both positive and negative shift deviation, and only the negative shift versions, signified with an "F" designation, will work with a Futaba transmitter. If you got a "J" version by mistake, try to exchange it.
