Default crystal question

I picked up a fairly new 700 RX on clearance recently. But the only JR crystals they had were marked "duel conversion receiver" and the plastic was red in color. With out thinking about it, I picked up one of those as well. When I got home, it occured to me that my other JR RX's (a 600 and a 700) didn't have red crystals, sure enough they have crystals with grey plastic, and they are labeled a little differently.

So, I haven't tried it yet, but I have the feeling that the red crystal wont work in the 700 RX? What RX is the red cystal for?

I believe that JR does have at least one dual conversion receiver but I don't know the model number. You could probably find out on the Horizon site. Every other JR receiver I've ever used has been single conversion.

The JR dual conversion receivers are the 940 and 945, and yes, you are correct that the red crystals will not work in anything else.

The dual conversion crystal in the red case as stated is for the 940 and the 945 receivers only. The crystal for all other aircraft receivers is in a gray crystal case and is a single conversion crystal, part number JRPXFR** where you replace the ** with the channel number you want it on.
