Default Refurbish old RC sailbot

I have an old 1M Soling RC sailboat with the airtronics Tx/RX and long arm sail winch.
Is it possible to refit these with newer RC electronics?
I think these are old AM basemen RC. Are the old servos compatible with new Rx/Tx?

Refit with new. No problems.
Compatibility. Depends on just how old the old electronics is. Some manufacturers liked to be "different" by having the leads in a different order and/or different shaped plugs. As long as the servo leads are in the right order, have the right spacing and are designed to fit on pins, the only problem might be that the plugs might need a bit of plastic moulding trimming off.
