Default Need a 27.255mhz radio for a Golden Arrow

Just got another GA, but this one doesnt have a radio. Its a band 6 27.255mhz. I was gonna put in a new system but then I was thinking I could just get another 27.255mhz radio. Am I on the right track with this train of thought? I really want to keep all the electronics stock because its a very clean example.

Thanks in advance!

Default GA

Happy hunting Captian, I have not seen one in a while anywhere. Only option I have seen for 27.255 MHZ TX is for crystals only but I could be wrong on this. I have a band one for my GA, both sticks broke and 13yo me threaded screws in their place. Its been working since the 90's that way but when I recently brought it back out I wanted to repair it back to stock. With no luck for the TX repair and a bad steering servo I replaced all the electronics with hobby grade components. I like original when I can but I have to say with the upgraded TX/RX, servo and ESC it is a lot more fun to drive. Having a brake function has saved this buggy from some bad crashes and is well worth it in my opinion.

I just got one in from eBay that has a different radio than stock. Iím gonna have to see whatís going on underneath the body when I get a chance. Iím up to 3 GAís and Iím trying not to buy anymore. Not sure why Iím even addicted to them lol.

I hear ya on the addiction with these, maybe because it brings me back to the 80's. I bought two for parts and when they got here I was surprised how clean they were. I may take my original electronics and put it in one for a stock runner and shelf it, with the other for parts. My original is modded and a blast to drive and wont be on a shelf.
