Default Trainer Cable and Tx's...

Do both Tx's need to have the same frequency crystals as the reciever on the heli/plane? How exactly does that work? Thanks

Short answer - No.

Long answer - only the "master" transmitter is actually doing any transmitting. The output of the "trainer" transmitter goes through the cable to the "master" instead of to the antenna. The "master" transmitter has a button that the instructor uses to control which transmitter's stick positions - "master" or "trainer" - are sent to the antenna. EDIT - I should also mention that the "master" transmitter does need to have the correct crystal installed. The "trainer" does not require a crystal. Some "buddy boxes" don't even have the capability to transmit - EVER. They are built solely for trainer use.
