I have a bunch of Airtronics servos, recievers, etc....
What I wanted to know if it's possible to use those recievers (by changing the crystal) with my Futaba 9C?

Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

Servos can be used, but you will have to flip the POS and SIGNAL wires in the plug. With Futaba the orientation from top to bottom is SIGNAL, (white) POSITIVE, (red) then GROUND, (black).
Unfortunately, even if you select PPM mode in your 9C, the receivers are not compatible. Futaba uses what's called NEGATIVE SHIFT and Airtronics, along with JR, use POSITIVE SHIFT signal format.
Some new aftermarket receivers, such as BERG, have shift selectability, which allows them to be used for either type.
If you are looking for receivers, I have a couple of 8 and 9 channel Futaba PCM Rx's I no longer need. Give me a PM.
