Royal Evo 9/2.4 Ghz upgrade

What is the story on upgrading old 72Mhz synthed Evo's to 2.4Ghz? I bought one back in '04 and now with the RC world going Ghz will I be left behind or what? I've seen the XPS upgrade but to my knowledge that module will not work with the Spektrum receivers (am I right on this one?). This would seem to defeat the purpose of having and Evo in the first place since the synthed versions worked with any receiver. I heard a rumor about a module by Hitec/MPX for the Evo's and saw that new Evo's are 2.4Ghz.

Even if Multiplex's M-Link 2.4ghz for the Evo was released in the US, it won't be compatible with Spektrum's rx's. Each manufacturer's 2.4ghz solution is proprietary, no inter - compatibility.

THIS thread has a lot of info on several ways to use Spektrum receivers with your EVO. User Shread has come up with a very clean way to do it.
