Default Digital hitec servos vs Futaba receiver

I plan to use 4 hitec digital servos in my plane and am not sure if my receiver can make a good job with a big load from theses servos ;I have an old Futaba R127DF 7 channels

2 servos 6965 for ailerons
2 servos 5625 for elevator

can I use standards extension for theses servos or HD

I have a battery pack 2500 mah nimh it is ok ?

The load of the digitals should not be a problem typically. However we have had several reports of problems associated with this specific RX. I don’t know specifics of the how, why or when. I’d suggest giving it a try and if it works and range tests adequately your good to go.

With any Digitals; HD connectors, switches, wyes and extensions are a must IMO.

The 2500mAh battery should suffice as long as the cells internal resistance is minimal. There are many NiMH cells in the RC world that perform poorly under load due to high internal resistance. I query the battery supplier for this information.
