MicroInvent actuators working with Plantraco .9g Rx?

The title pretty much says it:

Can the MicroInvent actuators work with Plantraco .9g Rx? What do I have to do; just clip off the included plug and solder on a nano connector?

That should do it. The wiring looks to be Litz wire, so when you cut them, you may end up with some frayed strands of small magnet wire. For each of the leads, just twist-together any frayed strands and tin them by running them through a droplet of solder on the end of your iron (flux helps). Careful not to accidentally mix up strands from the other lead, as this will short the actuator. Then, slide your heat shrink over the tinned leads and solder them to the nano connector.

Yep,

The 0.9g 3Ch receiver can handle actuators down to 20 Ohms or so - basically any magnetic actuator will be fine.

If you are planning on tossing the MI connectors, I'll pay you the postage and a small token for them.

I havent purchased anything yet, but I'm just trying to figure out my options. I've invested in the plantraco reciever / transmitter. Now i just want to know what non-plantraco components can be used with it.
