Default J.R TX W/ Futaba RX and servos

Stupid question for a 3 year pilot but...................... Im wanting to buy a plane with Futaba radio gear but I fly with a JR 9303 TX. Can I use my JR 9303 TX with this plane with Futaba RX and servos? OR Change RX to JR with Futaba servos with my JR TX? Leave RX and servos and use my JR TX? or None of the above?
Thanks

Probably, no. In north America, JR and Futaba are on a different shift, positive vs. negative, for 72 MHz so their FM gear is not compatible. On ham freqs, 50 MHz, and in the rest of the world, everyone is on positive. PCMs are all proprietary so none will work with another brand transmitter. As I recall when Futaba came into the US, they copied Pro Line, the top pattern radio at the time. They wanted to sell Futaba receivers to Pro Line owners. Too bad Pro Line was the only radio in the world on negative shift (as I recall).
