Default Super Cub conversion a brushed motor

I am keen to convert my sons Hobbyzone Super Cub which has a standard brushed motor to use a Orx R615X Receiver and a new speed controller.

The motor in Hobbyzone Super Cub only has two wires (red +v) and (black-v). What I need help with is:

1 - which wire do I need to connect the (red +v) and and (black-v) if I use a Plush -18A whihc has three red wires (A), (B) and (C). which wires do I use?
2 - Shoud I be using a new two wire speed controlelr and if so what should I be using?
3 - Can I use the standard servo with a Orx R615X Receiver

Many thanks in advance, Simon NZ

Brushed motors only use 2 wires. Brushless always needs 3 wires. So you'll eliminate the two wires and replace them with 3.

The standard servo should work fine with the new receiver.
