The radio also came with 2 301fs on 26 mhz. And transmitter and 2 receiver crystals on 26.815. Is this legal in the U.S.?
And it came with a couple of sets of 27 mhz crystals. The guy told me that the crystals were halved? What does this mean? So If I have channel 12 or 9, what are they?
Also, how much would a Helios with 2 301fs on 26 mhz, a 26 mhz module, transmitter and 2 receiver crystals on 26.815, 2 302fs on 27 mhz, a 27 mhz module, 4 sets of 27 mhz crystals, and the KO tansmitter bag be worth?
Well first question first...
You can order strait from KO for the wire...
Second question...is 26am legel in the US...
Well it is illegal but I have seen a couple of people run it and no one from the FCC has come beat there doors down either..
Thrid question...I might be wrong but I believe that halfed means they fall inbetween frequencies so unless you race with other guys with 26AM you should be fine...Well unless the FCC comes knocking at your door...Then well run forest run..j/k
Last question how much is it worth...
Well more for people who have frequency issues at there track less if it is someone in an area where you only have 25-35 racers a week.
I saw a Helios go for $300 with three recievers 302f's and 2343 servo so probably in that range.
Hope that helps,
