Default futaba jr servo compatability?

intimidator;

Wiring for Futaba, Hitec and JR are all the same. Even the new Airtronics "Z" connectors are compatable. The Futaba plugs have a polarity tab on one side, but many people just cut this off when using other Receivers.

It is the old Airtronics with (black) connectors that must be changed.

hmm,your right pops,it works fine.you know anything about boats?the servo is a sail servo for the steering,one of those big ones.when you turn the servo either way and it stops at the end of its throw it kida vibrates a little.it does it when it returns to the center too.is that supposed to help it to its job or is my servo screwy?its a s3801 sail servo btw.
