Default Spektrum DX5E & Futaba

I have a Spektrum DX5E Radio and Reciever,my question is can Iuse the older Futaba servo's with this new radio, I did the BINDING Process and Ihad to remember that with the Futaba servos that some times you might need to reverse the setting, So I hook up my Futaba servos and found that Ihad to file off the edge of the pin case to get the futaba servo to fit in the receiver. But when I tried it seems that Idon't get as much movement or "throw" on the servos? Is this just me or do Ineed to buy newer servos?

Servos (any brand will do) don't care where they get their signals from (well, obviously the frequency and shift have to match)......so you shouldn't have a problem.......and reversing the throttle channel only applies to Futaba Tx.
