Default Some help for the new guy

Hi guys, I am quite new to RC and I have a few questions. I have noticed that in the US they use 27 and 75mHZ. I know that here in oz we use 27 and 40mHZ. My question is are the 27mHZ receivers used in the US the same as the ones used here in Australia. The reason I ask is that I have family going to America and I want them to get me a Novak Xxtra 27mHZ receiver. I want to know if it will work with my 27mHZ radio which I bought here. I also want to put a Novak brushless system in my TRF414M World Champion Replica and I have the chance to get the system from the US. Will there be any difference between the US and Australian systems? Any help is appreciated.

Yes, it should work. I thought the Australia used 29Mhz and 40 Mhz?

The 27mhz XXL's are all the same should work fine.

I'm not certain but I'd bet the brushless system would be the same as well.

Excellent just what I wanted to hear. I am also curious to whether or not the Novak Brushless system will fit in my 414M as there is very limited space for electronics and the ESC is very big and tall.

Hey All

ARE YOU SURE??? The Japanese use 27mhz also, but they run a half step in Freq different with some of there 27mhz crystals. I know because at a ROAR race they don't allow the half step crystals.


You can use any of the USA crystals in your 27mhz receiver, thats not a problem. But if your going race some tracks really don't like you using the half stepped Freq. and I know ROAR won't allow it for some odd reason. I even showed them my FCC license but NO GO...

I run half stepped Freq. crystals(Japanese)all the time in my off-road buggies. Just so I don't have to worry about someone turning on there Radio. A lot of guys don't like it, but I show them on my hand held Freq receiver its in spec.. Most of the time there are 1 or 2 radios out there that aren't in spec... Sooo Just ask if your racing before hand. BUT AGAIN ANY USA 27mhz CRYSTAL WILL WORK IN YOUR 27mhz RECEIVER!!!

Have Fun!!!
An to You and Your Family Welcome to the States!!!

I believe someone has already mounted the BM in a 414 chassis. There is a 414 thread located in this forum. Do a search for "brushless" in the "electric on road" section and you will probably find it. Happy Hunting
