Good to hear. Hopefully I can get my LHS to order one so I can see it.

You wouldn't just happen to have an inside source with KO where you could hook me up with a demo unit to try out for a few days would you? Sure would make the decision to purchase much easier...

No sorry.. =( but hey if you can get your hands on the current ex-10 heilos the body/ casing appears to be the same so im sure it'll feel the same in your hand, just the new 1 has all the new technology and the new bells and whistles

I've been using the KO Helios EX-10 C2 special edition radio for about 3 years now and it has been really good. I've only had one problem with it and that involved the FM module included with it (I still run FM). The problem involves something in the module not quite connecting right sometime, so I just unplug it and plug it back in quickly and it instantly works perfectly. It has been doing this for a couple years. I just make a habit of unplugging and plugging it back in before I run my car. It has never glitched on me in a race, 45 minute nitro mains are never a problem. I emailed KO about the problem once and got a response the next day. I've just never been able to send the radio in to have it fixed because I have no backup radio.
I also have a KO 2413 servo in my buggy that I have been using without issue for 3 full seasons now.

I have used a friends 4PK and it is amazingly comfortable and the most solid feeling radio I have ever touched. I also have a Futaba servo in my touring car and it's quite nice.

KO Propo is the only electronics brand that is made in Japan, which to me makes the premium you pay for their products acceptable. Knowing my stuff comes from the homeland of amazing technology makes me feel good.
