Default Will these work?

Hi, I have a simple question. Will Futaba S3003 servos work with my DX7?? I know they aren't the best servos but I just would like to know if they will work. Thanks.

Yes, they will work just fine. Although, you have to do one thing to the servo plugs first. The Futaba plugs have a small tab on them that you will need to snip off. Once you do that you can use the servos with you Spektrum radio.

There's nothing wrong with the Futaba S3003 servo, it's a perfectly good standard servo for trainers and sport planes.

True.

This servo argument about response, centering, digital vs analog, etc reminds me of a saying a guy that used to work for me often said. "Measure it with a micrometer, mark it with chalk, and cut it with a broad axe". This kind of sums up the way some of us, Me included at times, approach flying.

Get the best and latest Radio on the market with over powered ditital servos, use sloppy linkages, and fly with thumbs that can't tell up from down in a panic. Then blame the crash on the radio.
