Default Spektrum

Yes, the KO spektrum system is the same for both radios.

losi-sw,

If I had to guess then the pro series would work also with the Mars radio line. Since the size will remain the same and the pins arrangement remains the same the performance gain from the pro series is inside of the module itself, and really its mostly about latency speed.

p.s. have you seen the mini receiver that spektrum is working on. Also there is a specktrum thread that would have more info.

Steve

I've used Spektrum with my Mars R since new. Love walking up to a track and just racing without having to ask who is running what frequency

I'm using Mars R and having problem binding the module & rx. While the rx binding ready is OK, the module did not blink at all...
Does this mean the module is faulty?
The R works well if using standard module & rx.
Anyone can help? thanks.
