If those stick radios are on 72Mhz, then no, you can't use them for a surface vehicle. They must either be on 27Mhz, or 75Mhz for surface use.

Those who still fly aircraft on 72Mhz are worried about operators of land vehicles buying up the cheap Aircraft Transmitters and not adhering to the rules regarding Land vs Air frequencies. With no Frequency Control, the operator of an RC Car or Boat could knock an aircraft out of the Sky and not even realize it.

2.4Ghz rules!!!

Yup, the frequency board sure is wide open for the holdouts at our field. Problem is, those old cast off 72Mhz transmitters can/will wind up in someones hands, that either doesn't know, or even care about frequency control and they can turn up way too close to your flying field
