those servos arent worth anything anyways, get some money and buy yourself a good high torque and high speed servo that will last you. i never actually heard of a servo smoking before so this is a first.

^^ +1 on a Hitec, good servo, reasonable price, great customer service (if you do ever need it).

Hitec has started using a universal plug ins on their servos - yes, that one will work. Pay attention when you plug it in cause you can plug it in backwards. Make sure the black wire is toward the outside of the rx - or look at the trx servo its replacing and make sure the black wire winds up in the same place.
