Default Recievers

Whats the difference in an Air reciever and a surface reciever? IE: Spektrum AR6000 vs a SR300? Can you use an AR reciver in a RC car? Or just airplanes?

i thunk the difference between them is that the air reciever has a longer attenna atached to it for more distance an the surface has a shorter distance. I dont see why it wouldnt work in a car. Ive never seen them used in a car.

you can not run a surface tranmitter with an air reciever they would not link up when you try to set it up. it is also illegal technically even if you could. air is 72mhz while surface is 75, 49 or 27mhz. now with 2.4 gig, it is the same freq hopping tech, but the radios and recievers are not compatible.

In the case of Futaba, they consider 99% of their stick radios for air use.

In reality, it does not matter if you use a stick radio for driving a car and a pistol radio for flying an airplane or heli (as long as one possess the skills to do so).

The receivers on the other hand have to be compatible with the radio itself.

yes you can, but there are some legal issues with frequency use.
