It may work, but in many cases, that does not work well. You need to match the receiver and the transmitter. But do not spend money to match those old radios. It is wasting money.
Get this 2.4 Ghz radio. The price is very affordable and the qulity and performence are very good. http://www.hobbypartz.com/79p-gt3b-carradio-lcd.html
