Default radio & rx combo compatability ??

I currently have an airtronics m8 (75mhz) but was thinking about getting a 3pk. If I get the futaba radio can I continue to use the
same receivers I have for my airtronics (75mhz) or will I have to get all new receivers. Also I am looking at the PCM version not the HRS version. Can I use the PCM version radio with my airtronics 75 mhz receivers or not?
Thank you
sb

You have to change your crystals to Futaba and set the 3PK to PPM mode.....you will then have no problems.

Default dtm?

So if i get different crystals on the 75 mhz band , my regular airtronics and novak 75 mhz receivers will work with the PCM radio, and you say just switch off the pcm . is there a switch on the 3pk pcm radios you can just turn off the pcm mode.
thank you dtm

Yes...the 3PK can run in 3 modes....PCM, PPM, HRS. You have to switch to the right mode for the right reciever.

The only thing with 75mhz is that you "have" to use the brand of crystal for the TX. With 40 and 27 you can even use crystals from other brands.
