Default Converting 72MHz ACE pulse receiver to 27MHz

Is there anyone ever converted a 72MHz ACE pulse receiver to 27MHz?
I got a 72MHz receiver but only have a 27MHz transmitter.

It's not as simple as swapping out a crystal. The entire RF section needs to be replaced. Many components are selected based on the frequency that will be used. To change bands like you want will require a major remake. Ditto if you want to change the Tx from 27 to 72. Better to find a Rx on 27. Probably cheaper too.

I happen to have an Ace 27 mhz transmitter, receiver and actuator,..

think also I have an old Mattel 27 mhz trans and receiver ...actuator as well... . I'm sure they both worked when put aside . Used to fly RO in the late 70's with same type equipment and a converted to .049 Comet 54" Aeronca Chief rubber
