infrared system i've compaired the channel assignments between the two.

Futaba channel 1 thottle
channel 2 elevator
channel 3 aileron

Hitec channel 1 aileron
channel 2 elevator
channel 3 throttle

Actually Hitec and Futaba channel assignments are identical at

Aileron 1, Elevator 2, Throttle 3 and Rudder 4

JR uses different channels

Throttle 1, Aileron 2, Elevator 3 and Rudder 4

Hitec Tx should work with code designed for Futaba. JR won't, Sanwa/Airtronics is different again and Multiplex use yet another variant though most of their Txs allow channels to be assigned as you wish.
