Well, lets put it this way...

Will it "work" - Im sure it will work - but for how long?

You see, JR wants you to put a JR 8700 Super servo on the tail when using a JR 5000t. The "frame-rate" of the 8700 is needed to keep up with the amount of corrections that the 5000t makes every second.

I have owned (2) 5000t with 8700 combos - and I am here to say - that you should spend the money and get the proper servo as the instructions state.

The last thing you want to do is have to repair your entire heli - because a Futaba tail servo gave out on you.

Just food for thought...

Regardless of whether you are a JR or Futaba fan, I think it's sound advice to avoid mixing servo brands with gyro brands. Keep the 9253's with the 502, 401, 501 and 240's, the 9251 with the 601's (it'll kill any other servo anyway) , and the 8700's with the 5000's and 550's.
