Real quick question to get your experience on a brand new Futaba receiver (R124H). It seems to not be working. I'm sending it back and getting a replacement, both of crystal (ch.15) and rec. I had tested an older receiver and crystal and everything worked with the older one, but nothing happened with the newer receiver. The old one is a Hitec 555, RCD 8200. the Tx is a 1997 vintage Futaba. In all my years of flying, I've never had a bad receiver/crystal. Is there something I'm missing? I have a Castle Age 18 ESC on it. Perhaps there's some new configuration that I'm not aware of? Or could it be that it's actually just bad? (I also switched out the new crystal with the old and the only combination that worked was the old crystal -old rec.)
I wouldn't put it past me just not being aware of some subtle change in electronics since I'd been out of the hobby between 2003 - 2009.
