Default 27mhz FM Radio help

I got a 27mhz FM JR Propo XS3 which is the asia version of the JR Racing xs3.
Instead of the 6 FM channel 1-6, I got 12 channel.
I know that:
Channel 1 26.995 Brown
Channel 2 27.045 Red
Channel 3 27.095 Orange
Channel 4 27.145 Yellow
Channel 5 27.195 Green
Channel 6 27.255 Blue

But what about the other 7-12 channel?
I just bought a FM 27mhz receiver (LRP Phaser) which need crystal, just wondering which channel I have to get?
Do I need to get JR Brand or any brand crystal would work?

For some reason, I found a XS3 in an HK ebay store, and their list of 27mhz frequencies is :
Frequency: FM 27MHz
26.965, 26.975, 26.985, 26.995, 27.005, 27.015, 27.025, 27.035, 27.045, 27.055, 27.065, 27.075
Assuming from channel 1-12



I borrowed my friend's crystal 27.465mhz Central Brand.
I have no idea which channel it is.

Need help
thanks!

In North America; we have CH1-6 but those are actually channel 2, 4,6,8,10,12 in Asia! That means we are only using their even number channels. Your channel 12 is actually ch6 (27.255?) If you ever go to Japan, you can get the 1,3,5,7,9,11 which are going to be the "in between our channels" frequencies. A fellow racer had some of those for his KO a long time ago when he got pissed with frequency conflicts cause here we only have 6 channels on 27band.

So my radio is following the UK frequency?
Num Frequency Colour
1 26.965 N/A
2 26.975 Grey/Brown
3 26.985 N/A
4 26.995 Brown
5 27.005 N/A
6 27.015 N/A
7 27.025 Red/Brown
8 27.035 N/A
9 27.045 Red
10 27.055 N/A
11 27.065 N/A
12 27.075 Red/Orange


But compare to the US frequency
UK: US:
ch4 26.995 Brown = ch1 26.995 Brown
ch9 27.045 Red = ch2 27.045 Red


Only those 2 are the same?
or I follow what TEM said without comparing the frequencies mhz #?
That Even # = US ch1-6

I think your list is wrong! You have nothing on 27.1XX nor 27.2XX

Yes, even futaba. It's not like 75Mhz where there is a positive or negative shift.
