Question Spektrum Rx and other servo brands

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Just wondering if you can use other brands of servos with a Spectrum rx without doing any modification. Can you just plug in a Savox, Futaba, or Hitec servo? Cheers, John

Re: Spektrum Rx and other servo brands

Hello John, for the servos you must make sure you place the wires in the good color order like here: http://www.geistware.com/rcmodeling/general_tips.htm
For the futaba connectors I prefer to change them for a JR type. Futaba's once modified are sometimes too hard to put in and out of the JR receiver
