It will work but airplane channels are for air use only I believe.

There are 2 types of radios, those made for surface use and those made for air use. They have different frequencies for each. I have seen in the past some kid playing with his rc truck only to "interfere" with another guy flying a plane causing him to crash, not too happy. Make sure the radio is for surface use.

Found this

In the US: 72MHz Channels 11-60 are for aircraft use only. 75MHz Channels 61-90 are frequencies for some surface vehicles (boats, cars). 27MHz (6 color-coded channels) is commonly used in both hobby-grade and toy-grade RC vehicles. 49MHz is found in some RC toys. Use of 50MHz frequencies in RC vehicles requires an amateur radio license.
