tl01, you shouldn't solder the wire pieces but you can replace it with one of the same gauge and length of wire by removing the case and VERY CAREFULLY de-soldering the old wire and soldering a new one on. You can get replacement wire at your LHS for about a buck or a whole roll frim the hardware store if you can match it up close enough.

No any receiver will NOT work with any controller, With older ones, you can get away with that - I have 6 AM 27mHz TX's and RX's of various brands and mix and match all the time. Newer ones, apparently, you can't do that with, an Airtronics-compatible receiver will only work with an Airtronics TX, and the same with Futaba.

Also the band has to be the same - AM, FM, 27 mHz, 75 mHz, etc.
