Futaba 6XHS compatible with other rx's?

On towerhobbies site it said "Compatible with any Futaba PPM/FM Receiver". Does that mean only futaba or can you use a hitec or other rx. Thanks in advance.

Yes...you can use the Futaba TX with other makes of RX but just make sure you match the crystals.....e.g. have Futaba crystals in the TX and for the RX use the RX make of crystal...so if you're using a Hitec 555 RX make sure you use Hitec crystals in it (for the 555 they also have to be dual conversion crystals). If you use the manufacturers crystal in the RX/TX you should have no problems but always do a range check first !

If you buy an aftermarket Rx just be sure to ask for a futaba compatible version. Hitec sells both Futaba and JR compatible versions - they are not the same and are not interchangable. If I remeber correctly Futaba and Hitec Tx's use the same shift, JR and Airtronics use the same opposite shift.
