Yep, but you have got to use an Airtronics X-tal in the RX as well.

Sure, I was using Futaba stuffs before I changed my TX to an M8.


But I kept all my Futaba RXs, I just have one Airtronics RX (the one that came with the M8).

Then how come it works for some people? I don't get it. I have read that the newer Futaba receivers can "sense" the shift and switch over no problems.

Hi,

I am using Super Ezes (stick M8?) with a M8 40Mhz RF module, and a Futaba R123F receiver.

No problem so far. However, you need to use Sanwa/Airtronics crystal on both TX and RX.

Why won't it work. I am using M8 with 3 original Futaba RXs and 2 Novak RXs made for Futaba and 1 original Airtronic RX.

If the Futaba RX is a Dual Conversion and you are using an Airtronic X-Tal... I don't see why it won't work.

I have using this combo M8 TX and Fuataba RXs since 1999.

Work with an Original M8 TX RF Module or The Novak Switch Synthesized 75 MHz M8 Module.

It will work...

If the Futaba RX is Dual Conversion you HAVE TO USE Futaba crystals for Dual Conversion

If the RX is Futaba PCM 1024, it wont work UNLESS those receivers are capable of working in "normal" FM mode (PPM)

The crystals will work IF the INTERMEDIATE FREQ on the Rx is 455Khz - AND THIS COVERS ALL AFTERMARKET RX like Novak, Nosram, Mtroniks, LRP, Hitec .... and ALL Sanwa, Airtronics, KO etc etc.

So, to cut a long story short.... it will work... trust rcprix
