RE: Can an FM Xmitter control an AM receiver ?

Can an FM car radio receive signals from an AM radio station? Yeah, if you park your car under the AM station's transmitter antenna.

RE: 6 ch rx and dual ailrons

Use any open channel, or if nothing is open, use a "Y" connector and plug it into any channel you wish. Normally the battery (on an electric model) plugs into your throttle channel via the ESC plug.

RE: Storage for planes

RE: buddy/trainer cord interface
