    Brushless won`t work with 27 mhz.

    Sorry about my bad english

    I have a problem with my summit 1:10 1 generation. This have an old 27 mhz radio, and now am about to oppgrade to a xerun 150amp esc and a leopard engine. But i dont get the esc to work,dont even the fan will work. When i turn it on ,the esc will light green 2 times og the it will stop lightning.And everything becomes dead, But i tryed a ansmann 2,4 ghz 3 channel radio,and it works the first time i connected it. But i want to use the 4 channel radio so i can use the lockers and low/high gearing.

    Is there anything i can do so i can use the old 27 mhz radio with the BL ??

    Thanks

    As far as I know, no.
    Brushless and 27MHz don't play well together... this is the reason why you see brushless RC's come with 2.4GHz radios.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Dragged kickin and screaming to the 21st century.

    The only brushless system that seems to work with am radios are the Traxxas smaller VXL brushless system

    Interesting. I recently bought an upgraded 3905 emaxx that has a hw 150a esc and tacon 1800kv bl motor and the truck had a 27mhz tx/rx. I moved them to the pede i built for a local kid, but even it has the vxl 3s and all seems to work great. Let me know if i am missing something?

    Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
    Brushless systems throw out some wicked interference.

    FYI brushless are fast really fast, with a 27mhz and combination with the speed, there would be a frequency black-out, unlike 2.4ghz fast run is not an issue the signal is maintained accurately.
