Question
Robbe F14 Navy

I have been informed that the Robbe F14 Navy is no longer available in 75 mhz. Does anyone know if one could convert the F14 Navy from 40 mhx to 75mhx.
I spoke with Tony at Radio South and he couldn't do it. Any ideas
Thanks John

I contacted him, but couldn't do as he's not an authorized FCC repair person

Thanks

Don't mess with these Barney Fife nervous types and just buy the plug-in TX module from Alexander Engel.
It is a straight-forward installation kit and will be under the radar screen when completed.
Check out Jeti as well.

Sorry. I now see that you are looking for 75MHz. Jeti actually offers a system that switches back and forth from 2.4 GHz to your base TX. I have the wiring configuration schematic drawing for converting
your Robbe F-14 to 75MHz.
Try Radio South for radio conversion

I have an article from a german boat magazine that shows the conversion to 2.4 GHz while maintaining functionality of the F14 multi switch and multi prop modules.
