The receiver doesn't matter. It's what the transmitter is sending, and what the servo translates that to be.
I just had a new bargain basement $6 servo I had to replace for other reasons. To get it to center, I had to change the output of the radio to center at 1598uS (!) Which is really, really far off. Changed to a Hitec, and it was spot on at 1500uS, which is the most common timing for centering. Get a Hitec or Spektrum servo, and you should be good.
