I'm wondering if a std micro steering servo can be run directly from the mini-z pcb? I'm using a z pcb on a different project and want to use a servo for better steering.Wiring instructions would be great too :)

Sure they can, MK2 and I run our MRCG's off the 2.4G ASF PCB.

All you have to do is rip out the control PCB from the servo casing, and then transplant wires from the Mini-Z servo motor and pot, to the servo motor and pot inside the casing. Normally it's a straight transplant (+ to +, - to -, and pot wires go in the same left/middle/right locations) but if you get it wrong the servo won't fry -- just try again till you get it right. ;)

What about a two wire (AM) pot is that the same too? One wire is soldered to two terminals on the pot?

You can transplant two wire pots the same way, just make sure the center wire stays the center wire. :)
