Hi guys, need help with this dumb question, I have been always a Futaba one, but I just buyed a good oportunity XP8103DT, and just wondering, is it possible to use futaba servos and gyros on a JR TX/RX?

If its possible, what do I have to buy for them to work?

Thanks,

Yes, definitely. The only thing you have to do is trim that little tab that sticks off the servo connector so you can plug it into a JR receiver. Make sure you observe correct polarity - black on Futaba is brown on JR. You'll also have to reverse the servo directions in the radio.

The only thing you couldn't use from futaba is the receivers. GV1 works fine also.

There are a lot of us that fly JR radios but use futaba servos/gyros...myself included.

OK
Thank you very much Angelo, I knew I could, why do the servos need to be reversed?

I believe Futaba uses negative shift vs JRs positive shift transmitting scheme. Its no big deal, just do what is necessary to get the controls moving in the right direction.
