Default mixing brands

Quick questions. I have a airtronics radio. fm 75mhz channel 69. On one car im running airtronics reciever and on my other one i am running a HiTec reciever(same frequency and channel obviously). I am thinking about getting another car and am going to need a reciever. I want to run this reciever http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXKZB3&P=0 (futaba FM 75mhz w/built in fail-safe) with this crystal http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=LXBFL369&P=V (channel 69). Im asuming this would work but wanted to double check.

As long as both of them are fm and 75 mhz it will work.

I know JR and Futaba is not compatible because one uses positive shift and the other negative shift for the signal. I don't know about Airtronics vs Futaba, double check.

This is not true as some radios are positive shift and some are negative. I know Airtronics and Futaba will not work together.

wrong sir, i own the futaba 3PK with FM 75MHZ moduel, and i got in a little deal i made 2 JR RS310 recivers on 75 MHZ synthesized and i too use channel 69 and the JR's recivers will not work with the futaba the polarties are not the same


BUT YES if there is a JR radio running channel 69 and there is a futaba radio running the same channel even tho that dont link to each they will glitch each other like crazy i tryed it
