Hi!
Don't know if this is the right place to ask but has anyone got an idea if I can convert my 72MHz Futaba 9VHP transmitter to 35MHz? What kind of module whould I need if it is possible?

Thanks!

Tell me the model number of the module (like "TK" or whatever), and I'll tell you.

It says FP-TK-FM on it....could I use a FP-TW module from my 9C for example...? Or do I need an older one?

Thanks!

That should not be a problem technically speaking because that radio was surely sold in other countries that used that frequency band. You pretty much just need to order the 35 mHz version of the module you now have in the transmitter from the Futaba distributor for Norway.

I switched the module from 72 to 35MHZ and had to replace the 72MHz rubber duck antenna to a normal extendable 35MHz and guess!
It worked like charm!!
Thanks Dr.Ben for your inputs in this case!

Happy 9VHP owner
