Well my wife really did it. She bought me a park flyer (FireFlight from the Sharper Image - similar to Hobbyzone's FireBird) and I'm having a blast. Now I've been eyeing all the old R/C stuff that hasn't flown in 10+ years. The first bird I'm likely to get back into the air is an old Great Planes PT-20 with an OS 0.25 engine. My old radio is one of Tower Hobbies old sets which I now understand makes a nice paperweight due to narrowbanding.
Therefore, I've recently bought off of Ebay a Tower Hobbies System 3k 4 channel transmitter. No servos, no receiver, no charger. I have a couple of questions that I'm sure someone here can help me with.
- Can I use my old Receiver, simply swapping the crystals ? I've tested this so far and aside from some channel assignments in the new transmitter, using the old Channel 44 non-narrow band crystal set, and everything seems to be working OK. Next test is to buy a 72 .990MHz crystal for the receiver and see if everything is OK. Anyone expect any problems ?
- Anyone got a charger set for this for sale ? Tower seems to sell them pretty cheap, but I thought I would check to see if someone had an extra.
