RE: Changing Tx Crystals

I'm glad to see you've done some research, and acknowledge the legality of changing the Tx crystal yourself.

I would recommend, since you know it was previously on channel 52, you get a...

RE: Spectra Module

True, the FCC regulations only apply to the USA. However, the originator of this thread (fremontb) lives in the US, where the FCC forbids the use of a Spectra module in anything other than Hitec...

RE: RX crystals.

Futaba is the only manufacturer still splitting their product line into High and Low bands.

If your receiver is anything other than Futaba, go ahead and switch to any of the channels. If it is...

RE: HERE COMES THE FUTURE IN RC RADIOS

While we're talking about channel guards, and automatic receivers, let's not forget the Tracker II / Seeker radio from Polk's Hobbies. The Tracker II (Tx) has a built in scanner which scans your...

RE: does this exist (making sozbot)

Just a quick reminder...

72Mhz radios for ground use is strictly forbidden by the FCC. For ground based RC, you must use either 75Mhz or 27Mhz radio equipment (unless you have a Ham license).

RE: Futaba/JR Transmitter With Airtronics Receiver?

Frequency Shift is only an issue with radio gear designed for North America (72Mhz). I don't know what frequencies are used in Isreal, but if it's 72Mhz, you have to watch your "shift".

RE: Ever had a problem when swapping crystals?

You've hit the nail on the head here... The average user does not have the equipment to verify that their radio is still within specifications, so the law was written to reduce the possibilty. When...

RE: Ever had a problem when swapping crystals?

Now it's your turn to prove your seemingly false statement (I'll bet you don't). In many states (and provinces) it is legal to sell a radar detector, but illegal to use it. If caught using it (in...

RE: Ever had a problem when swapping crystals?

Yes it is... Some industrial users pay hundreds of dollars (yearly) for the right to use their frequencies.

I don't know what determines the price, but I assume it is location / bandwidth...

RE: Ever had a problem when swapping crystals?

Because the law says we can't. The law was written, because we are SECONDARY users of our frequency (72Mhz). The FCC doesn't care if our Tx's crash someone else's plane. THEY DO CARE if we cause...

RE: most used freq chart?

As a Tracker II owner, I can assure you the pilot has full control over what frequency is used. It scans to see if your chosen frequency is in use, and if it's clear, then powers up the RC circuit. ...

RE: Receiver compatibility with RD 6000 TX?

I just looked at the manual for the RD6000. Page 24 describes how to alter the frequency shift. They use the term "PPM reverse" to implement negative shift.

Therefore, your RD6000 should work...

RE: Receiver compatibility with RD 6000 TX?

In North America, Futaba and Airtronics don't mix, unless your Tx has the ability to alter the default frequency shift. I don't know if the RD6000 can. Any Rx utilizing positive shift will work...

RE: Futaba reciever w/ JR radio

It shouldn't work in North America, but should work fine elsewhere.

That's because Futaba uses negative frequency shift, JR uses positive shift here.
