No, but you might be able to convert your 3 wire servo to 5 wires. Just remove the control board inside the servo, and connect the 5 wires directly to the pot and motor. To find out which wire goes where, look inside an old 5 wire servo. If the servo motor drives continuously then it's wired backwards, so swap its wires over.

Another possibility is to find the PPM signal coming out of the receiver chip, and add your own decoder. However if the pulses are non-standard then you will probably need a custom programmed microcontroller to do the job.
