Default Two AeroHawks nearby

Is it possible to fly in the same time two AeroHawks in close vicinity? Or does it require to change frequencies/buy some add-ons?

It does require seperate frequencies, but that is standard with any RC hobby. There are many frequencies to choose from.

Now, I have never seen 2 micro helis fly close together. What is the turbulence like?

I believe that my AeroHawk is set to work on 72MHz frequency, can both of them use the same, and be spread across it with some tweaking or I have to go for completely another frequency range (35, 40 or whatever)?

Here is a link to the [link=http://www.rccanada.ca/rcc_tech.php?art=freqs]Canadian Frequency chart[/link]
I cannot get to the AMAs site. Connection refused. I don't know who the regulating body is where you are form, but it would be similar. Eac set of Transmitter and Receiver would have to have it's own channel or frequency. I fly on channel 32. My brother flys on channel 44. We fly at the same time, standing next to each other.

I believe this answers my question pretty well, in order to fly two choppers near by you have to have different set of frequencies. Now, how is difficult to change frequency on which your RX and TX works? I've noticed there is something for pulling out on my TX, so that part is easy, but how about on chopper?

nicebag,

Yep you do change the pull out xtal (crystal) in the TX and the micro xtal in the receiver (both same channel freq.), but depending on the receiver you might have to desolder / resolder the xtal from the board because it may not be in a socket.
