Default Futaba S9550 Servo Being Discontinued?

Tower has the Futaba S9550 listed as discontinued. Is it being replaced with a brushless version? I love this servo.

Yes! Finally!

Don't worry guys, I bet the S9551 is just around the corner. I actually ordered a 9550 last month and returned it to tower just in time. I'll wait for the 9551.

Based on the part number I assume you're referring to the BL550? Sounds sweet! Any idea on the street price?

I didn't know if they will come out BL550, i am just guessing since they have BL version of 351 and 451, why not 550 as well
