Anybody know if I would have a problem with placing a new hitec crystal in an FM futaba reciever? It seems to work but haven't rangechecked or flew it yet.

Thanks

I would strongly advise against doing this. You simply don't know whether the oscillator circuits in these two different brands are designed for the same crystal.

The RX circuitry is not necessarily designed for the same type of crystal. Since Futaba makes crystals available, why take the risk?

Is the 4 dollar difference you'll save by using an unsupported configuration more or less than the cost of replacing your helicopter?

I strongly suggest anyone contemplating this to pick up the March copy of R/C Report and read Tony Stillman's (Radio South) article on the subject.

I would really suggest not doing that. It's just not worth the risk.
