Default KO Vantage with spektrum

I heard that Spektrum was introduced to the KO Vantage, but needs to be sent in to be adapted. Whether this is true I dont know, but would like to find out. The US Ko site has no information.

Can someone help me out?

Thanks

Well, I can't be sure, but doesn't the Vantage have a removable TX module like the Mars & Helios radios? If it does, then I see no reason why you can't just buy the Spektrum module & receiver & that'll be all you need(just plug it in, bund it to the receiver & you're good to go)....

The KO Vantage has to be sent (as far as I know) to Helger Racing in the UK who are the UK distributor, who does a conversion to make the Vantage run on a MARS module, this then allows the MARS Spektrum unit be fitted.

This renders the old module useless though, and the conversion can't be removed.

Yes Helgar Racing are doing the conversion. As DCM says it is a perminant conversion to the Mars/Helios Spektrum.

I have seen a couple that have been done, looks like a nicely done job. The origional module cutout and antena cut out are both blocked up.

You can see it here http://www.helgerracing.com/bchangeg...bjanpage2.html
