Default Digital 2.4GHz RX : digital and/or analog servos???

Hi All,

I was at the pond the other day and one of the lads told me you can use analog servos with a digital receiver,
it just doesn't work to try a digital servo with an older alalog RX; it will burn out the digital servo circuitry??

Is this true?

He was using a Futuba 2.4 GHz system with a hi-torque analog servo. Is this only a feature of Futuba; I am running Spektrum gear?

Thanks for Your feedback!
Harry

I have used Analog and Digital servos with both my 2.4 Rx's and with my 72Mhz PPM and PCM Rx's. I am not aware of a problem.

Mix and match freely.

If you use a Futaba R6008HS/R6014HS rx in high speed mode, you cannot mix digital and analog servos in channels 1 through 6. You'll fry the analog servos.
