Default Futaba receiver question

Hi guys,
I have a question concerning Futaba receivers. I have a 6exa system that runs on channel 47. I got a Futaba Flight Pack that came with a ch.33 crystal in it, which is a Low Band receiver, and put a ch.47 crystal in. It seems work OK. Whats the difference between a Low and High Band receiver? It's my understanding that the ch.47 crystal should be used in the high band receiver.

A crystal only changes the frequency abit if i am not mistaken. For example , u can change the crystal if u want to change to frequency from 27-30Mhz or from 40.144 to 40.754. i think the max is about 7Mhz. Pls dun blame me if i am wrong![sm=tongue.gif]

Yes you should use a high band RX for high band freq's 36-60. The 47 crystal will work but probably not as well. The high and low RX's are center tuned, so even though it works the range may be diminished.
