Default Modify to Futaba J connecter

Hi, Im really new to RC, actually going back into it after 20 years and ready to order a new Futaba Radio system!!

Is the Futaba J connector just the opposite direction(male vs female) of other std connections? Or is it completely different?

Reason I ask is...I want servos in two models. I have a 20 yr old MRC 72.320MHz. I want to salvage the servos. My theory... cut the female connectors off the reciever and splice into the servo wire. Presto! "J-connector" and now I can use old MRC\MR-12 servos with new computerized Futaba system. OR NOT???

Any problem w/old frequency sys servos to new freq sys?

Your help is appreciated,
XTECH

This will work in your case, The servos are not much different in present voltages across the circuit. I have a few old servos I am turning into electronic speed controllers for electric R/C. Make sure the connections are current and not reversed. This will save you some cash in the end. Your new TX benefit this though.
