Default Futaba Conquest radio

Im just getting back into R/C after about 12 yrs, and am quite interested in electric park flyers. I have two Futaba Conquest FM 4 ch radios dating back about 12yrs. The batteries in the Tx still hold a good charge. Can I still use these radios at most flying fields? Also, can i use an electric setup with ESC, etc. with these radios or should I just invest in two new radios? Any help will be appreciated, Im an old glow flyer, and this electric stuff is really cool, but all new to me.

Yes, the Conquest radios are 1991 compliant radios. http://www.futaba-rc.com/manuals/index.html
They will work fine with ESC plugged into the throttle channel (#3) as both of mine do. Just remember that for ANY Futaba radio, you must reverse the throttle channel for ANY ESC to work properly. I don't know why, that's just the way it is.
