Default Airtronics Servo to Futaba Receiver

Does anyone know if I attach the Futaba connector to an airtronics servo if it will work with a Futaba Receiver?

If it is the new style (the connector will be blue) it will plug in and work fine without any modifications. If the connector is black you will need to modify the connector a little and swap the + and - wires. Really not a difficult job at all and only takes a few minutes. This link explaines it far better than i could http://www.fatlion.com/sailplanes/servos.html
Good luck

Here's an image which includes all the popular servo ends. All modern servos (the last 15-20 years) will work with a competitor's radio as long as the connector is wired up correctly.
