Default Standard/Mini Servo Mix (Futaba)

Gentlemen. I'm constructing a model where servo space is at a premium (aren't they all that way?). I would like to use a smaller servo for throttle control...ie I would like to mix the servo sizes used in the model (Standard/Mini). Can someone tell me if this is taboo? Thanks in advance.

I do this all the time, mix standard and mini servos on my JR radios. Can't see why it wouldn't be OK on Futaba LOL.

As the Irish said mini/micro throttle servos with whatever you are using elsewhere is a very common and useful practice.

I frequently use HiTec 85 servos for dual aileron servos and if the space is "real tight" I use BlueBird 380MG (50 oz torque @ 4.8 volts).

Thanks guys.....probably a no-brainer but always good to get confirmation before buying, cutting, routing, frustration, frustration, crash, CSI, aha......they don't mix!
