    Crystal that gets the most interference

    Hey guys.. i just have a quick Q. Is there a particular AM freq (crystal color) that gets the most interference? Are there any crystal colors that we should stick to? or avoid? Or they are basically the same?

    As there is only 6 to choose from I don't think it will really matter.

    i'm running yellow and i do get interference from time to time. Is FM a good upgrade from AM? or Just get 2.4DSM?

    I am running a Hitex Aggressor SRX FM radio with the Spectra module and the Synthesized rx...no crystals to worry about and the rx has a built in failsafe. You can pick up nice FM radios off ebay for cheap now that many are changing over the 2.4s.

    it really depends on your area.

    It definitely depends on your area, so use what you feel is best. Definitely stay away from blue though because its frequency is shared with CB radios and is the most likely to receive interference.

    This chart shows the cb and r/c frequencies...you can see that cb channel 23 is the same as r/c channel six/blue. CLICK!!!
