Default Exceed Fa18

Want the Exceed FA-18. My question is, what kind of servo connectors come with the PNP or RTF versions? I am thinking of getting the Spectrum 5e or just getting a mini Rx to use with my JR Radio. So, will the stock servos plug and play in a JR or the Spectrum?

All the PNP's I've seen have had what they call a "universal" plug. You should be good to go. Mike

so if I use a standard Airtronics rx it should be no problem? I was concerned because you use to have to switch the plug wires to use Futaba with Airtronics/Jr and the other way around.

I believe that the "old" Airtronics servos and receivers had the gnd wire in the middle of the three wire plug. They switched some time ago to
the "gnd-pwr-signal" like most other radios. They did however, retain their own style of connector, which may not fit into any receiver than
their own. You can not use a Futaba/Hitec transmitter with an Airtronics/JR receiver as one uses a positive pulse and the other uses a negative
pulse. You can use Airtronics with JR and Futaba with Hitec.
