Default Vintage radio Conversion to 2.4

This has probably been asked before, but here goes. I have some vintage radios (Kraft, Hobby Lobby) that I would like to put into some vintage airplanes that I am building (yes from kits) over the winter. Anybody know where I can get them converted to 2.4, either Spectrum/JR or Futaba/Hitec will do. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Jim

From what I have read in other threads, Radio South is doing these conversions. This has come up quite often since owners of Single Stick transmitters want to be able to use the Single Stick system in 2.4.

Here is some information on a Kraft Spectrum 6 conversion I did. I have also done a conversion on a Kraft series 74.

Jim I had success converting my old Orbit to 2.4 using the Hitec 2.4 module and of course the Hitec 2.4 Rx in my case the Optima 7.
