On most 2.4GHz receivers the signal is 3.3v, just about all servos from the last 5 years work just fine on these radios, so I should imagine they'll work just as well on the due. Just remember the power supply for the servo wants to be somewhere around 5v and you're good to go.

Downloading The datasheet there is only indication about The operative Voltage of The servo. So maybe we cannot use servo whit arduino due?

So when the data sheet does not tell you measure it. Take a volt meter, power up the servo with 5 or 6 volts and measure what is on the input connector without connecting it up. If this shows less than 3V then you are fine, otherwise you need some protection on the pins.

Thankyou...

..never power the servos from arduino's 5volt supply.. use external source instead..

sure... i use to plug 9V battery with a 7805 regulator... but i was talking about the signal pin...
