Circus Hobbies (JR) PCM Computer Heli Radio - still legal??

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have an old but perfect condition Circus Hobbies PCM radio (heli)

Does this radio meet current standards?
Can I still use this radio for aircraft or am I limited to surface use with my boats?

Would appreciate advice on this, thanks !!

I think that it would be illegal for surface use and would still conform with current standards for aircraft. I am still using my 72MHz JR PCM receivers all with ABC&W technology without any problems. The frequency chairman of MAAC stated that we will not lose the frequency in the near future. You'll have to be more specific in order to get an exact answer. Ken

If the crystals match the frequencies on the MAAC chart it should be legal for use in AIRCRAFT ONLY.

Surface frequency is 75 MHZ.
