Re: futaba radio and receiver compatibilty ?

The raceiver you have is a postitve shift receiver. Futaba runs negative shift. Reciever is not compatible with your radio. Also as for crystals you need to stay with the brand of receiver you have. Eg. Hitec receiver Hitec Crystal Futaba futaba etc. There are some compatible types but why risk it.
