Default Servo Extension Wire/Plug Sets

Hi all, I need some servo extenders and would like some advice please. I have a Spektrum DX8 radio system. The plane I am building calls for 6 of the 12" servo extensions with male and female plugs on each end, obviously. I might be able to replace 4 of these with 2 of the 24" ones. There are obviously lots of different plug types. Is there a plug type for Spektrum radios? Where would I buy these? Thanks for your help.

JR/Spektrum stuff will work with most standard connectors, Futaba is when you have to watch cuz they use an index tab that needs shaved if you're not using Futaba extensions.

Best bet is to buy extensions that are "universal". They have the JR style female (servo plug is female, you go by the contacts, not the housing) and a male end with a Futaba sleeve. MPI is a good source.
