Default Parts for GWS Slow Stick

I am wanting to buy a brushless Slow Stick but want to use parts from my destroyed Flyzone Cessna 182 RTF (not brushless). This will be my first "build" as I have only flown RTF electric planes.

My question is: Can I use the Transmitter, Receiver, Battery (1100mAH NiMH),and ESC from my Cessna on the Slow Stick?

I know I will probably need to buy new servos (mini ones) for the Slow Stick. How do I know if all these parts are compatible? HELP!!

I'm not familiar with the radio gear in the FlyZone plane. If it uses normal type radio stuffs like the servos and receiver I can't see why you can't just use them.

The ESC would likely not work unless brushless. (or you wanted to put a brushed motor on the stick)

The good news is the stick will fly with an un-believably broad range of gear and can even fly (and well) at 19 or 20 ounces. So you might even be able to use the battery from your Cessna. Of course all I've said is out the window if your radio gear is somehow goofy/non-standard. Even then you may still be able to make it work!

Thanks for the info. If I do need to buy a new ESC if I go the brushless route, will my transmitter still work on the plane as is? The transmitter is the 4ch Tactic TTX400 that came with the Cessna.

This brings up yet another of many questions I have. How can one transmitter be used on multiple planes? What do you have to make sure the plane has specifically to ensure that you can use the transmitter on it?

Sorry for the very beginner questions.

The receiver(RX) in the plane is on the same Ch as the transmitter, you can change the Rx crystal to change the Channel if need be, Theres alot to learn I know but the good part is you get to fly while your learn'in!!!Ask away,, thats what we do here! Here's my little Slow Stick, Bub steve

Cool paint job on yours!

How do you change the crystal on the receiver in the plane?

Are you able to change the crystal on the transmitter also?

TX must talk to the RX-must be on the same channel. You can get more RX as long as they are on the same shift and channel. There are 2 shifts, positive and negative. I have no idea what the Tactic is. Some RX are auto shift so it does not matter. You still need to be on the SAME channel (crystal that plugs into the RX).

Legally you cannot change channels on the TX. If you fly around other RC you know you should check to make sure you aren't both on the same channel. To do so is disaster.

Better TX have 'model memories', storage for settings on the TX about different plane setups. Yours does not > 1 TX-1 model.

If everything from the Cessna still works you can likely use it all, even large servos. The SS is not terribly weight sensitive.

Thank you! This is starting to finally make sense

My Tactic TX crystal says 72.55 Ch 38. So if I need to buy another receiver it needs to read the same correct?
