Default FP-R127DF receiver tuning?

can the fp-r127df receiver be retuned to a different 72 mhz frequency? I have several with different channel numbers and would like to use channel 60(72.990MHZ) in all of them.

That RX uses crystals to change frequency. If you can get the correct channel number crystal to match the one in your TX you wil be fine. 72MHz crystals are hard to find, but they are out there.

I understand that, but I have a transmitter that can control 6 different models and I need six different rx and they all need to be on the same frequency/ channel.

I was told that each rx is calibrated to the crystal it came with from the factory.

Over broad ranges. They had what was called "High range" and "Low Range". Basically not much of a worry. FutabaUSA no longer services 72MHz stuff. If you are in the USA and want to try RadioSotuh they might be able to help you if you really are concerned about it. Like I said, finding crystals may be an issue.
