I believe at least some of 72MHz is licenced for mobile services. Definitely at your risk that it may not function for you and a really bad idea to operate anything that could be conceivably dangerous on that band. I'm aware of some retail indoor heli's that are on 72MHz though.

You wouldn't be able to fly at a any official clubs with that setup and the cost of converting to 36Mhz would not be trivial. I don't think it is as easy as a crystal change even with the RX's - but I haven't tried myself.

Man you guys have it tough in Australia with your limited frequencies.

In NZ we can fly using the :

26,27,29,35,36,40 & 72mhz bands.

In the UK we can fly on 27Mhz ( very rare these days ) 35Mhz , or 459Mhz although I've only ever seen two 459Mhz sets . You guys in NZ have got it sorted .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

Nivlek- with the large number of freq's available- I fly on 40.510mhz- and I'm the ONLY heli guy in my club and, I think, all of NZ on that frequency!

I love Funflys- not having to share the peg!! Worth the extra $50 to have the crystals custom cut.

I have NEVER had to share a Channel Freq at a Funfly and I goto probably 12 a year in NZ.

And just to make the rest of the world even more jealeous we are being issued another 30+ channels in the 36mhz band half way thru 2006 !
