I have not done this long term, and I have not made the physical changes to make the newer module fit the "receptacle" better, but I HAVE installed and tested for operation and range, the newer Futaba modules in both FM and 2.4...they work great operationally.

Have a Blessed Day!
Awesome tip! Thanks!
