Default Futaba and JR compatable?

This might be a dumb question, but..................
I have Futaba gear, I have the chance to buy a JR XP8103 at a great price and it so happens all my planes are channel 40 and so is the JR radio. Could I use the JR TX with my Futaba RX???

What about the Servos???? can I use Futaba sevros with a JR TX and RX???

Thanks
Craig

Yes. You can mix JR & Futaba servos & receivers.

In the USA, Jr uses positive shift and Futaba uses negative shift in their transmitters and the two are NOT compatable. The servos can be interchanged with no problems as long as the mechanical fit allows (you will have to shave the plastic flange off the Futabe servo connector to get them to fit into the JR receiver.
