Sounds doubtful.
The frequency bands either side of 27Mhz will already be allocated to a use other than rc. Governments can charge a lot of money for licenses to use that bandwidth. Rc isnt too high on the priority list generally.
In Europe they have decided to allow cb users to use 27mhz too which means there is loads of interference on 27mhz now.

As stated, the FCC deturmines what frequencies are used for what purpose. Even if a mfr may wanted to come out with more or new frequencies, it is not up to them. We have all the freq that we can get and there are many bigger groups (with more influence and money) that would like to have what we currently use. There won't be any 26 band...

I don't know about 26 MhZ crystals, but some people here run "half frequencies" which are basically the 27 MhZ channels they use in Asia. Their channel "1" is below our channel "1", their channel "2" is between our channel "1" and "2", etc. We have used them with other people using the channels close to them and have not had any interference problems. We were worried that channel "1" would interfere with channel "1" and "2", but it didn't. These crystals are from KO. I don't know if anyone else makes them or not.

I just learnt from my Futaba manual that the French, swedes and finns are allowed to use certain 26mhz channels - but no-one else.

I think 26.895 is brown/channel 1 - still classed as 27mhz.
