Default FM Tx work with AM RX


Hi, new here and have a question, and only hope I'm put it in the right place. I have a Futaba 2PL AM 75 That I use on my rc10gt's, now i have a new T-Maxx that needs a 3 channel radio, was looking to get the Futaba 3PM, but it only comes in FM, So well a FM TX work with a AM RX if there both 75.490 channel.
Thank you
Richard

Don't waste you money on an AM radio. Get an FM setup for your new stuff. They are much less susceptable to interference and there are more to choose from.

Thank you lrb75, i know that a AM radio is not the best but for ground vehicles is should work, I just didn't want to have two radio's to take to the field, and if I go FM than I'll have to get three recievers to go into the other trucks.
Thanks
Richard

The only radio that tower lists that is a computer pistol 3ch am radio is airtronics and I don't think it will work with your futaba receivers. You can get hitec 3ch fm receivers for about $40 that will work with the futaba radio.
