Default Convert 27 mhz.35mhz 40'06 mhz. to 2. Thingy me bhz

Is converting the older R/C gear 27,35, 40.06 to the newer 2Ghz posible or simple? Anyone done it? Is it expensive? I have a number of trannies (not vesties) with all of the old wavelenghts and would like to consolidate if you get my drift.

AFAIK, you just need a new Tx/Rx. I believe the servos/esc are the same.

It wouldn't be cost effective today as you can pick up a brand new system on 2.4 a whole lot cheaper than converting. However, it can be done as Crist did it by gutting the old circuits and replacing with the boards of a new system.

Starcad is correct. First you would have to own a Transmitter with a module fitted in the back that can be changed, eg. HiTec Optic 6. However it is not normally a viable option when you can buy a new 2.4 GHz Transmitter and reciever included for around $53.00.
Conversions + new receivers to suit generally cost more than this.
Buy a new one, but you can still keep your old gear for gliders or park fliers etc.
