I have 3 aircraft and one transmitter that I would like to use for all 3.The transmitter is a hitec laser 4/6 channel FM.@ of the planes are lg 54in ws and I can interchange reciever and servos if needed.The 3rd is a1909 wright flyer w/electric,my question is can I use the hitec trans as long as I use a hitec reciever and do the mini servos needed have to be the same brand or can I use any micro servo????

The Hitec Laser Tx will work with any negative or autoshift Rx on the same frequency. Any micro servo is usable as long as they have compatible plug with the Rx you use. The only problem with using a non-computer Tx with several models is that they all have to be set the same mechanically(servo direction and trim)or you need to reset them every time you switch model!

As far as servos, most any servo will work if they are wired the same (Black, Red, White or Brown, Red, Orange). The Signal wire is usually White or Orange.
Futaba servo connectors have a Polarity Fin on them. For some receivers, you need to shave off that Fin and bevel the edges of the connector to fit into the receiver. JR, Spektrum, and Hitec connectors are very similar and usually fit in each others receivers.
