Default Changing Frequencies

Hello, I have a Futaba 7uap. I was using the pcm reciever that came with the radio. I have determined that reciever is junk. Now I want to use one of my RF-127df FM recievers. The old reciever (the pcm one) was on channel 20. The reciever that I am wanting to use now (RF-127DF) was a channel 51. I put the channel 20 crystal in the reciever, and it seems to work just fine. What do you guys think about this? Thanks!!

-Matt

technically legal, although futaba claims they use high and low bands, and you shouldn't cross over between high/low.

What you're exposed to is that the receiver may not have as much range, and it might get confused by an adjacent channel. If you think these risks are worth the $20-30 it would cost to send it in and have it tuned, go for it. Personally, I'd spend the money and get it fixed rather than risking hundreds on a plane.
