Partially. If you have the correct connector on the airtronics servo it could just plug in. Thing is that if you have an old style connector on it you could fry the servo and/or receiver. Check the Airtronics website to verify which connector you have and the necessary changes to make it work. Airtronics adopted the industry standard a while ago, and documented this.

just got to make sure the polarity is correct.

all servos are interchangable now, but airtronics used to be different, if your red wire is on the outside, switch it with the middle black one and make sure you plug it in right
