Oh sorry about that, I wasnt clear LOL

I mean like what speed mode can it be used with, I have a Helio which has like "normal" mode and a "High Speed" mode behind the module. Im just wondering which it uses.

Sorry for the confusion.

No problem. I don't have a Helios but I would assume that the HRS mode is for Digital servos and the regular mode for analog servos.

So is that the info you needed? If so just run the switch according to the servos you have installed in the vehicle.

That I wouldn't know. You can try it but if it doesn't work then set the switch to what type of servo you have installed. Hopefully you don't have 1 analog and 1 digital servo....That could be very interesting. I don't know if the Spektrum covers each servo individually or not for settings.

In my Sensor settings, I can make either the steering or throttle servo setting analog or digital to whatever the servo is and the radio goes from there.

Goodluck....

If you look closely at the Helios it says FM at the top of the page. It can be switched to HRS which increases speed with a digital servo. The FM mode by trait is analog.

Even though when you use your Spektrum 2.4 Gig module and reciever which is digital by itself the analog Helios transmitter only transmitts in a analog FM signal to the Spektrum digital module.This is not digital at all....

Hence you see racers with the Nomadio system call the Spektrum system "Da Slow Mode" because it is not a 100% digital radio and 100% digital module/reciever working as one unit.

Now whether you like the Sensor or not I could care less but I don't like being told that I spread false info. If I did not know for sure I would have never said that the Helios is not a digital radio but just a FM radio. I have been in this hobby for many, many years and misleading people is not my bag.

I'll take your apology now.....

thanks....
Think what you want . Ko says it is along with what the manual says . SAYS RIGHT ON THE MANUAL COVER . Anyway , you never had a Helios , but you know it all . As a matter of fact I just got a response back from Robert Morris @ KO explaining the high and normal mode along with it being digitial .
PM me with your email address and I will gladly forward it to you .
