    Teaker11, I had asked on my old Futaba and here is the answer "As long as the transmitter is set for FM-PPM, it should work." I will let the expert chime in if I am wrong.
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

      As Tom mentioned. It should work fine.
