Hi Niel,

After reading the posts on RC control I would like to buy your Stanton Radio Cab and reciever - as I understood directly from you.
I'm building a ON30 layout. Steamtrains are Bachmann.
Belgian by origin (flemish), now living in the center of France.
Thank you for your kind reply,

Filip Timmerman

Hello Filip,

Sorry, radio frequencies are licensed differently around the world and I don't have the resources to check the requirements of each country. Unfortunately, that restricts my direct sales to the US, (and, maybe Canada).

Best wishes to you,

Neil.

Filip-I might suggest that you read through the volumes of other r/c information here on Freerails. There are many r/c users outside the US and they have threads, etc. in the radio control section. While it would seem like r/c is r/c...each country has different regulations about frequencies that can be used. The new 2.4GHZ systems have no frequencies, they operate via direct links to the receivers. Please read through what others have written, maybe then you can decide what to do next.

36timfi,

Try this site for more Radio Control information. They seem to talk about RC in Europe, Ausrtalia, New Zealand and places other then the USA.

Thanks Neil for your promt reply !
R/C freq. in France - I need to check it out.
Woodie send info about the new 2,4GHZ system without freq.
Operating directly to the receiver.
For I'm not a electro-techno just finding someone building a system would be fantastic !!

So I'm still in the dark...
Have a nice day,
Filip

Bonjour Neil,
Had contact with ANFR, the official "agence de fréquences" in france and hereby the list of freq.band allowed for "modélisme" = modeltoys:

26,81 - 26,92 MHz / 100mW P.a.r / Canal: 10 kHz
26,995; 27,045; 27,095; 27,145; 27,195MHz
34,995 - 35,015 / 40,66 - 40,70 MHz all 100mW and Canal 10 kHz.
72,2 - 72,5 MHz / 100mW and Canal 20kHz.

There's quite a choice it seems so please let me know if your Stanton RC system works in these freq.s.

Thanks,
filip

Thanks Filip...those 27 MHZ freqs are what I am using. They were used for "ground" applications-r/c cars. The 75 MHZ was for boats, and 72 MHZ was for airplanes. With the new 2.4 GHZ digital, I haven't got a clue!

The Stanton radio uses the 900 MHz band; specifically 916 MHz, which is legal in the US for a wide variety of uses, including remote control. The advantage of higher frequencies is smaller antennas and higher data rates.  Size is important because I have focused on smaller scales, mainly HO.

Unfortunately, this does not help you so far as using the Stanton solution.

I suggest you look at 2.4 GHz, which is well supported in Europe. It's widely used for model aircraft control. A company named "Spektrum" seems to be a major player.
