Default RX problems; Newbie needs help

Let me first say that this forum is awesome! I really appreciate all the help I've gotten from the good folks around here.

Now to my problem: I replaced the receiver in my Parkflyers Cessna 182 with a Hitech HFS-04MG FM negative shift. The original receiver was giving me problems and Parkflyers wasn't helping me get it replaced, so I figured I'd upgrade and get the Hitech.

I installed it into the Cessna, and when I plugged the crystal from the old RX everything started twitching like crazy. The servos do repond to stick input, but they are constantly twitching up a storm. Any ideas on what's going on? The old Parkflyers RX twitched a little, but nothing like this. Am I not supposed to swap crystals like that? I thought about getting a new crystal along with the new RX but I have no idea what channel my radio is transmitting on.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
