possible to use air receiver with ground transmitter

i;d like to know if it is possible to use a air receiver eg. electron6 on a ground transmitter, eg. hitec agressor?

my ESC would check for 0 throttle before start up but a pistol grip spring return trigger throttle would register as 1/2 way? or 50% throttle?

i tried using sub-trim to adjust the throttle to 50% but still it does not register as 0 throttle to the ESC.

Anyone have any ideas?

thanks in adv.

It is possible on some systems and not on others. Some simply will not allow for TX RX connection.

Then of course some esc require to see zero throttle but like you mention on surface zero would be full back.

Not possible in this case. The Aggressor Tx is on 75mhz, and the Electron 6 Rx is on 72mhz.

You really can't do it anyways because of frequency laws. 72mhz is reserved for air use only, and 75mhz is for ground only.

Thanks for the reply guys, where I am at they designate 29mhz for all rc. So my tx and rx are the same freq. What Ian trying to trick the rx by adjusting the sub trim. Yeas its not meant to work that way?

It has nothing to do with the RX (receiver) but everything to do with the ESC (Electronic Speed Controller). You have 2 different types of ESC more or less. You have AIR and Surface esc and Water esc fall in between.

Some have reversing function and of course you do not need reverse for air.

You are mixing different components and trying to make it work.

Air TX with surface ESC and or vice verso RIGHT?

You can most of the time RE-CALIBRATE the esc and so you should be able to get it to work.

I have done this in the past but mind you it was with current up to date US/CND equipement...

Found my silly mistake, I had not reconfigure the channels. Was too used to my multiolexk evo12
