    i've done it before without issue. try it out as long as you have the casing so keep dirt from getting inside the tx then its ok. they are the same crystal jus one uses the housing is all. just be sure you dont run 2 red's at the same time or you will be trying to control 2 trucks done that too many times lol.

    They're talking about the older AM radios that used removable crystals to change the channel. The 2.4 radios do it electronically.
