ESC compatability
ok first off, don't yell at me or anything because this is prolly a stupid question.
Alright now, I have an ESC that is set up to plug into a Futaba RX, but I have a JR radio system. So my question is this, is their any way I can use the ESC with the radio? I note that the male end of the plug on the Futaba is a little wider than the female slot on the RX. I looks like the prongs are spaced the same, but I don't really know if the wires correspond or anything. So any help anyone could give me would be great.(and I like to keep is as cheap as possible)

RE: ESC compatability
Take your X-Acto and slice that alignment tab off of the Futaba plug it it will work withyour JR.

RE: ESC compatability

Yep, cut off the tab. (Just wanted you to hear it from someone else too.) ;)

RE: ESC compatability
a jr radio is positive shift and a futaba is a negative shift. they won't work together unless the jr system allows you to switch between them.

RE: ESC compatability
It's a speed controller, shift makes no difference...

RE: ESC compatability
i know, i am talking about the tx and rx. a +shift tx won't work with a -shift rx unless the tx is switchable.

RE: ESC compatability
i just noticed the brands he mentioned so if he is asking because they don't seem to work, that might be the answer
