Default Will Spektrum DSM work in 3PKS Radio?

I just bought a new Futaba 3PKS radio. I'm assuming that the Spektrum DSM module for the Futaba 3PK will work in the new 3PKS radio but I want to make sure before I buy one. I figure at least one of you raceaholics would know.

I'm thinking of getting one too for my 3PKS.
check out the Spektrum web site and you'll see that they also offer the 3PK HRS system.

Why the HRS sysyem? you can't use the new micro receiver, SR3500(love it). The difference between the Pro & HRS is less than 2/1000 of a second, You will love the size of SR3500, free up a lot of space.

And I think with HRS you also have to use futaba servos too.

When I popped in my Airtronics 94360 it tried to just spin it nonstop in one direction. Had to turn off HRS mode.

Thats why I went for the regular Futaba Spektrum PRO system, and not the specific HRS system.

I didn't have any futaba servos to try on it, I bought my 3PKS with just the synth module/reciever.
