Not necessarily, the rules are pretty complex and I don't know them all - safest route is to keep the manufacturers the same.

Yep, as long as the receiver is on the same frequency band as your transmitter (75 or 27mhz) and you have the proper crystals it will work.

Only on a few of the new "High Speed" radios this will not work.

Default Receiver

70mph pan car;

There are several things that need to be taken into consideration.

1) Shift. The Receiver must be of the SAME shift as the TX. (There is positive and negative shift systems)

2) Mhz. The standard for R/C Cars is 27mhz and 75mhz (in the USA). This must be the same as the TX.

3) AM or FM. Must match the TX.

As long as the RX is designed to work with that brand of TX, Receiver brand does not matter.

Receivers sold seperately will be labeled for Shift, Mhz and AM/FM.
