Default FUTABA6EXA

Not too familar with Futaba FM but a friend of mine told me that a Hi Tec receiver is compatable with this radio, and my other question is if the transmitter is 6 ch and the receiver has more or less than 6 ch will this work also ?

The Hi Tec will work. More or less channels on the RX is not a problem either. Matter of fact it's common.

Some Hitec recievers are compatable. Make sure it's a negative shift, shift selectable, or Futaba compatable.

Postitive shift or JR compatable (same thing) aren't going to work.

Just for the record and for the benefit of others reading this.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
On FM systems

The reciever crystal must be changed to the frequency of the transmitter unless it is a transmitter with a spectra module in the rear.

Unless you can exchange or change the module in the rear, the frequency of the transmitter cannot be changed unless you send it into a service facility and have the frequency changed.

JR and Airtronics are positive shift - Futaba and Hitec are negative shift

Some receivers are select shift or auto detect shift. On many receivers, the shift cannot be changed

With 2.4 Mhz systems, they must be brand compatable between the transmitter and receiver.
