Arrow Question for KO PROPO

Is Ko Propo EX-1 Mars R the lightest amount other top model transmitter? I never use KO transmitter before. The LCD screen looks very small. Is it easy to understand the display? Where can I get the best price for it?

The Mars is very easy to understand. As far ar weight I'm not sure...... But I do know if you have big hands or don't like your transmitter to be tight around your hand you may not like the Mars....... BUT I love mine!!!!

Looks like the new EX-10 Helios will be KO's latest flagship model, replacing Mars R.

According to KO USA, probably june or july. Why the need for another radio, it seems you already owns a 3PK from the looks of your signature.

I think my 3pk is defected. It gives me bad first impression. I want to try out the new EX-10 Helios. The kr-302f receiver is so small.

The new 302 receiver does look sweet. Doesn't your 3PK comes w/ 1 yr. warranty?

Ya, but I don't like the product that is defected in right out of the box, even though it might can be fixed and have warranty. I will get rid of this one.

My 3PK is 100g heavier than my 2000R....both with the drop down wheel installed. From the Mars R expect it to be even lighter!

It's out now in Japan I just bought mine last night..32000 YEN...and I got it with the now 302 reciver and new 2343 Servo too...It's so trick that you can program the servo on your lap top! ...money wel spent in my book....Plus the Helios feels much better than the EX-1 Mars..and I loved the mars too

JDM,

Yes!!! Someone who owns a Helios. How much is it in dollar? Can you list the specs
of the 2343 servo. Is the PC software already bundled with the radio? Is the drop
down wheel already included? What are the pros and cons... I hope the Helios
arrives here in the Philippines as soon as possible. Did you get the same
response when u first saw Helios pictures and actually holding one?

hello...

does anybody experienced a weird 2143 servo behaviour???
A friend of mine bought one from someone who is selling half of the local price... I bought one from a LHS which is taken out from the EX-1 Mars box.. at a local price of course..after comparing the two.. I found out that mine was smoother and if you turn the whell ( powered off), it will move smoothly without much resistance... hhowever, the other one is giving much resistance and not smooth..also giving out gear movement sound... his servo has been used for a couple of months and even from new it's still behave the same....

I assume it was a rejected or immitation 2143.... is there such things happening now????

P/S NEVER BUY NEW AND GOOD THINGS AT A MUCH CHEAPER PRICE!!! UNLESS YOU KNOW THE THINGS WELL. OR ELSE... YOU'RE SPENDING MUCH MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


cheers to everybody...
