Default Ham Band receivers and 72mhz

Danny:

I have a PCM NER-236xz receiver on 50mhz from my old "ham" days. I put a 72mhz xtal in it and switched my X347 to PCM and voila' it seemed to move servos. I would assume that the same would happen with my 8103 radio too.

My question is can I use the PCM 6 ch. receiver on 72mhz without fear even tho it says 50mhz on the case? Will I be ok to fly with it?

Thanks.

Well, though it may seem to work, the range will not be acceptable. It would not be recommended to fly with a 50 Mhz RX on 72 Mhz.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

I have a couple of other questions, if you would take a moment.....

(1) There are many transmitters being sold in Europe on eBay and other sites and they of course use 35mhz. Can we use these over here without any problems ....just by removing the 35mhz tx module and replacing it with a 72mhz module?

(2) And I was wondering if the 627XZ PCM receiver is capable of handling a 5-6 cell ni-cd battery with a 6v-5.5v regulator to deal with larger servos requiring greater demands?

Your answers are always (tho not often stated) appreciated!!!!

1) In most cases it will work, however overseas systems are not FCC approved, nor do we service them.
2) The receiver would be fine, most servos however are rated for 6V maximum, but if you use a regulator for 6V or below you should be fine.
