    I must say I'm stunned this one has slipped through the cracks. No plans available? A quest!

    After reading of Jim for years, I was fortunate enough to meet him in the '80s.

    I think the big issue the OP has is the plastic cassette. That thing is hard to come by.
    I've been using half a cassette with a 3s LiPo stuffed in it for years in my 9z.

    Any chance there's a walk-in hobby shop nearby that carries 27MHz crystals? They probably would let you try out what they have to see if any work.

    If something burned it will be visible when you examine the insides. Why not open it up and take a look to see how bad it is?

    Yep, you're there and can see it. It sounds pretty rough.

    It might be worth sending the receiver to Radio South or the manufacturer before writing it off.
    It's likely it lost a land and/or a regulator. A few minutes of checks by a skilled tech may reveal...

    You should always turn the transmitter on first and off last.

    Sorry, I didn't get the dimensions, but I'd guess the wingspan to be about 55" or slightly less.
