I used old NES501, 101 JR servos from 1980's in my big Gas powered biplane ... FrSky 2.4Ghz Rx etc.

No problem apart from one servo became intermittent ... checking back my old stuff - I'd forgotten about that servo and should have left it in the bin !
Only thing I found was they were slow compared to todays similar sized large servos.

I spoke to ex JR Service Manager (UK) and he reckoned no problem to use ... even had same plugs.

I also have Futaba 1980's servos ... but they have the old 3 pin style plugs ... I'm told is not simple matter to change over.
