Hitech Focus4 receiver conversion

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
For my first post, I hope I'm not asking a typically newb question!

I'm in the process of building a K&A V1 Buzz Bomb, (my first EDF, but 15th or so airframe) and they recommend that a micro receiver and servos be installed. I've got an older Hitech Focus4 which I hoped to use, but alas.....neither the servos or receiver meet their criteria.

Question here is; can I convert the Focus4 to use a micro-receiver, or do I need to convert the transmitter as well?

If I can convert it, is there a good, better, best selection for my needs?

Many thanks for the help!

Re: Hitech Focus4 receiver conversion

You can use the Focus 4 transmitter and just buy a micro receiver and crystal on the matching frequency. Look on the back of your transmitter, and it should say CH #
which is your channel number or "frequency" . Make sure the receiver is " negative shift"
or "auto shift" which is for Hitec Futaba radios.
Buy the servos of your choice!
