....There's a problem with buying airplane R/C's- They have a channel that can only be used for air frequencies...

-It is against the law to use air frequencies on a ground vehicle. You could control a poor kid's airplane/helicopter and hit 'em in the eye/ hit a poor squirrel/ ruin the kids day/ destroy his expensive airplane/ etc.

      Radio Frequency Reference Chart
      On rare occasions you may want to know what frequency you are broadcasting on, and not just which channel it is. For example, if your remote control robot is for an underwater environment, you would want the lowest frequency possible to minimize attenuation (interference).

      72 megahertz, Channels 11 - 60: This is the most popular choice for flying models. Most radios designed for model aircraft and helicopters will be available on these channels. DO NOT use this frequency for anything other than aircraft, as you could unintentionally cause a crash of someone else's remote control aircraft nearby. Big deal? Not so big when they lose hundreds in $$ from damage, or even worse, a death or injury results from the crash . . .

      75 megahertz, Channels 61-90: Cars, boats, and other non-flying models must use one of these channels. Pistol grip radios are available on 27 MHz as well as 75.

      27 megahertz, Channels A1-A6 and 50 megahertz, Channels 00-09: While legal for air or surface use, we recommend that 27MHz be used only for surface models. A pilot and driver broadcasting on the same 27MHz frequency would cause interference and could cause a crash. 50MHz channels can be used for R/C, but require the user to attain a Technician-class Amateur Radio License from the FCC.
