Staying 72 mhz
I'm sure someone has had to already ask this but with all the folks going 2.4 ghz, is there anything wrong with staying 72mhz? The reason I ask is I have 3 aircraft and would love to keep my radio gear all the same. A lot of the 72mhz stuff is really coming down in cost. I don't know. Food for thought. It's cheaper to by a Futaba R146iP than any of the 2.4 ghz stuff. I was really thinking about changing but then I need a new radio and 3 new receivers.

There is nothing wrong with your decision in staying with the 72 mHz radio. The way I see it, you can probably pick up 72 equipment at a cheaper price. Ray Fernandez - GUAM

72 mHz is fine, solid technology. If you plan to fly in competition, many organizations only allow 2.4 GHz. One advantage, as more switch to 2.4 it decreased the chance to be shot down on 72 mHz.

I converted all the heli's to 2.4 GHz, but my planes are still on 72mHz.

I hate the thought of a $2000 heli being shot down by someone not paying attention to the frequency board.

Believe it or not, hardly anyone is flying 72mhz up here in upstate NY. I guess I'm kind of lucky. I'm also only one of a few helicopter pilots. Mostly everyone else flys 2.4.

You probably won't have to fight for your frequency clip I don't think there is anything wrong with flying 72mhz if you already have a bunch of stuff. Not to mention, you can find awesome deals on equipment that people aren't using anymore.It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
