Question Digital servo with regular radio?

Can I use a digital servo, hitec 5465 with a regular futaba fm radio? I was thinking at one time that couldn't be done. Thanks!

Yes, they are compatible with a standard FM radio. I don't think servo compatibility has anything to do with how the radio transmits a signal, but I could be wrong. But I use digital servos with my FM radio...

The only issue is you either need to have epa adjustment on your radio or either set up the linkage so the servo is not in a bind at the end of the travel.

As long as there is no binding, you will be OK.

Good, just wanted to make sure and not burn up a 50$ servo!
