Opened up the box and my 600 FBL only comes with Futaba/Align DS610 horns. Instructions show optional horn for JR. Bummer. My 700 FBL has both sets.

What Assurance told me is that the stock horns will work for now until the new horns are available

They do fit the Align and Futaba servo's but not the JR 8717's I use. Why they did this with the 600 kit I do not understandThe 700 kit I have comes with both horns.

I checked Aligns site and its the same there. no intentions on providing JR horns. Probably because the frames dont fit the 8717's without a file anyway!

If they had to include horns for all manufacturers, soon people will be requesting airtronics, hitec, volz, bluebird, turnigy, etc.

Futaba horns are included because they are identical to Align DS6xx servo horns.

There is nothing preventing you from using a horn from JR. Just mount the balls based on the measurement provided in the manual.

Well, 2 points on that. They include them in the 700 kit, and its only one of the most popular servos out. I agree it should be included.

The 500 doesn't use push pull so that has no bearing on the contents of the other kits.

Align is packaging the JR servo wheel separately. They already have them posted, so I assume they will be in stores shortly.
