Default KO Mars Question

Hey Guys,

I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to adjust the throw of your throttle servo with a Mars in the same way that you can adjust the travel of the steering servo (ie so it still uses the full range of the trigger). I cannot find any menu function that does this. It is possible to turn down the throttle HiPOT, but that means that you are trying to control the throttle with a limited range of trigger motion (ie the first half of it's full range). I can move the linkage on the servo closer to the pivot pt to achieve the same thing, but that causes some other minor problems.

Also, if there is no function to do this, does the Helios (or other radios) still have the same setup, or is this easily adjustable now ?

Thanks

I looked through my book and couldnt find anything, but then again this isn't the easiest book to understand either.


Other than abs, I never used any other function.

thanks, I seem to have temporarily misplaced my instructions, but like you say, they aren't the clearest anyway....

anyone else can recommend a radio ?

How to do this?
1. PRess and hold both simultaneously the balance down and the Key A UP keys, and then turn on the Mars controller.
2. Press the Key A UP Select key until you see Sys Level, then use Plus or Minus key to select level 2.
3. Press direct key then M. Sel Select key to get back to main screen. Or simply turn off unit then back on
4. Use the Up key to find a screen that shows Et 1:Pos S Trim. Could also be Et 2:Pos T Trim. There are 4 Et choices, and 2 Bt choices here. Once you find this use the M. Sel Select key to select the 4 Electronic trim modes. Then use the plus or minus key to raise or lower your setting.
5. Et 1 is Steering Trim
Et 2 is Throttle Trim
Et 3 is Steering Travel******** The one you want to adjust*******
Et 4 is Brake
6. Be Careful when making adjusts for steering travel. Make small adjustments and check the travel of tires, so as not to bind steering or rub on something.

Lastly, Yes the manual sucks. But when this radio came out years ago it was top of the line. I have never had reception problems outside or inside for racing. Never seen the need to upgrade. I elected to spend money elsewhere due to budget restraints.
Hope this helps

Use the THROTTLE HIGHPOINT = TH: HIGHPOINT setting to adjust this and it is under the the regular menu not the system menu.

My bad you are right. I misread the post and thought he needed steering travel for steering servo.
