actually align has one, I don't remember the part number. If you look it up at http://www.align.com.tw you should be able to find it. Then you can order it from any number of places.

Now, why? The futaba digital servos can be safely run at 6v I have been told. What is not recommended is using a 5 cell nicad pack, because a fully charged nicad or nimh is more than 6v. I'm a nimh sub c user and it works fine for me.

If you've got a 6V regulated supply that actually keeps the voltage to 6V, you don't need the step-down. I've been running my 9254 at 6V for dozens of flights with no problems. As said before, a 4-cell NiMh pack will output around 6V when it's fully charged, so if 6V were unsuitable, you'd have tons of broken servos. Another cheaper option is to use a diode, which drops down voltage by .3V or .7V.
