My understanding is this...

-- Futaba had an exclusive distribution agreement with Hobbico.
-- After entering this agreement Futaba acquired OS.
-- While OS has been historically distributed through Tower and Hobbico channels, there never was a formal exclusive agreement to distribute OS ONLY through typical Futaba channels.
-- For these reasons OS was able to migrate to alternate distribution channels earlier than Futaba.

Someone closer to the industry will correct me if I've misspoken.

Some of the above might explain why there or OS branded servos that appear surprisingly similar to Futaba servos. Could that be a work-around to keep Futaba servos moving to surface use modelers while the Hobbico problem runs its course? Maybe it was just marketing.
