Default Hitec Flight Pack Compatible with Futaba Tx?

Hi Folks,

All of my equipment is Futaba. Last night, I won a Hitec Universal Flight Pack at our club Xmas party. It looks to be a very nice package with high speed dual BB servos (HS-425BB). It has a Supreme dual conversion receiver with a selectable shift so it supposedly will work with Futaba. All I need is the Hitec Xtal on the appropriate channel. I just want to do a sort of "safety check" here on RCU since I have never mixed equipment like this before. Is there anything I need to be aware of or watch out for if I use this Hitec flight pack with my Futaba Tx?

Steve

Yes you are good to go. Follow the instructions with Rx to set for negative shift. It is my Opinion that the Rx you have and the 425 servos are superior performers to the comparable Futaba product.

Oh by the way make sure the Hitec crystal you order for the rx on your tx channel is a Rx crystal and it is a dual conversion crystal, not a single conversion crystal.

NO worries at all.
Between my Dad and I we have about 5 or 6 of the Hitec universal packs.
We fly with Futaba and Polk transitters (I have an older 7 ch Futaba I just cannot seem to part with).
Works great.

Thanks for the feedback. I have noticed that the servos in this flight pack are rated slightly better than the current S3004's I use - we will see. I have already ID'd the correct crystal and placed it on my Tower wish list.
