Default WALKERA 60 Futaba2.4

If I replaced the TX and RX of the Walkera 60 with the Futaba2.4 and left everything else with no change, will it still be glitching??? cause I already bought one, please help.

I run the Futaba 6EX 2.4Ghz with my 60 and have no glitching, the 2.4s are claimed to be glitch free. But just before recieving my futaba I found a way that stopped all my glitches.
If your interested go to the walkera forum and look it up in a post called Walkera 60#B Upgrade ideas??
I explained it to that gentleman and included pictures, it should help you too.

I use these with my 60B

Futaba 9CH
Castle Creations Berg 7ch RX
Hitec HS-65MG (3 for cyclic servos)
Hitec HS-81 for tail servo
Hobbycity 1450mAh 25C 3S lipo battery
Futaba GY-401 gyro
Castle Creations BEC 10A (@6V)
Elf Hobbies 4200KV brushless motor
Elf Hobbies 30A ESC

I've mounted my RX in the chassis and my battery on the tray on the front where the RX was supposed to go (and bent it down).
I've also seen the tips for grounding the tail boom, and spraying the tail belt for static.
I've also got a ferrite ring for the ESC lead.

In my case the Elf ESC had a 2A BEC that was not enough and the servos jittered, so I added the CC BEC, which is 10A, and the jitters stopped immediately. The ESC is also much cooler now (it got hot just during programming) since it was trying to draw more amps than then BEC could deliver.
