What other brands of receivers are compatible with Futaba's 3PDF (Megatech Racer I think...)? I have 2 cars and it's very annoying to shift receivers between my ta04 and tb01 - 04 has a tub chassis - difficult to remove the receiver...

TIA.

Alvin

Will futaba crystals fit into a KO receiver? One of the LHS selling the 40Mhz KO receivers around S$100 (if I not mistaken) compared to the Futaba FM receivers around S$150...

i believe that all the crystals are the same size and stuff...

about the price, its how the manufacture base the price, its like buying power tools, theres lots of brands that could do the job you need...its whether you want to get one that cheap or expensive!

As long as your transmitter is on the same frequency as your reciever it will work. That's why you can never be on the same channel as others no matter what brand of transmitter or reciver you are using.

The M8 Tx + KO Rx only works if you use Sanwa's crystals.

I only used novak, and the sanwa receivers, I never used cross brand receivers. Call me a purest, but I don`t like using other brands other then what its made for.
