Default Frequency

I want to know what frequencies are used for planes, boats, cars/trucks. I know planes use 72MHz ranges, but what do boats and cars/trucks use? Also, I have heard you cannot change the frequency of your transmitter, but they sell crystals for your transmitter at tower hobbies so my question is if they sell them can you change them? I have a transmitter on a 72Mhz range that I use for planes, but I wanted to know if it were possible to also use this transmitter for boats and what I would have to do to the transmitter to be able to use it that way. Its a Futaba 4VF transmitter.

Here are the frequencies
http://www.modelaircraft.org/comp/frequency.htm

due to FCC laws, you cannot change the frequency of your transmitter without sending it in to the manufacturer for re-calibration

legally you cannot use an aircraft radio for a surface model. Do people do it? sure, is it legal or safe? nope

Hope that helps a bit
