Default Buddy cable with different brands

Just a quick question. I have a Futaba 4 channel radio 4VF and I'm getting back into r/c aircrafts. Will the buddy cable work between Futaba and other brands at all? HiTec, Airtronics, etc... People in this town have HiTec and Airtronics and I'm just curious. Someone said that the Airtronics looks like the same connection as the Futaba one on his controller

Any Futaba Tx that utilizes the round buddy cord plug will buddy with any Hitec with a buddy port if the Hitec directional cord is used. The cord is marked student and master and the master plug must be plugged into the master Tx whichever it is. Any mixing or dual rates will not be translated to the student Tx.

Hi,

I suggest you have a look at my website (in my signature) and aspecially look at the biggest problem of buddy box compatibility between different brands of transmitters in chapter 1, paragraph 1.6 .

For buddy box between Hitec and Futaba, have a look in chapter 3 under "Hitec".
