Futaba Servos in JR Receiver ?
I have been deluded for years into thinking that Futaba servos would plug into a JR receiver if you simply snipped off the tab. This is simply not the case. The Futaba HD connector shell is 7.75 mm wide and the JR is 7.50 mm wide. They won't go in. You can sand off 0.25 mm and made them work but that is really a PITA and looks awful.

What do you guys do ? I know some of you are using BLS451 servos in JR receivers.

The cleanest and simplest solution would be for someone to make shells which accept the Futaba pins and fit into JR receivers.

With all the variations on shell/pin design, there has to be one out there that would work. This has been an issue for so long I can't believe they aren't readily advertised and available.

This is such an easy kill for someone who can design and get things manufactured.

Yes Indeed you would think someone would make them. The Futaba HD pins are bigger and won't go into some shells. Oddly enough, I found some "universal" shells that would accept the HD pins BUT they won't go into the JR receiver either !

I am going to make a tool that holds the connector shell so that I can mill off 0.125mm from each side. Neat but also a PITA. I have a lot of BLS451 servos and might buy even more Futaba servos.

John, XG14 sticks are the best I have ever had.

After 2 hours of work I have shells that fit the Futaba HD pins AND into a JR receiver. Now why does someone not make this shell ?
