Given that Futaba has that protocol locked down, it's likely that will never happen unfortunately.

Well that just made me unhappy . No wonder Futaba has their sbus servo prices so jacked up.
Thanks

FrSky makes S.Bus compatible servos.
Since an S.Bus enabled servo is fully compatible with a normal receivers PWM outputs without having to even be programmed, I'm surprised that more manufacturers haven't added the capability to their digital servos.

OK, I just learned that the Optima SL has an S-bus output, so adding s-bus capability to Hitec digitals doesn't seem like too much of a stretch.
