I would recommend starting around 20 boost and checking temps. The fixed-timing motors usually have around 12 timing advance built in.

Keep in mind you'll have to adjust gearing as well.

My LRP Vector 13.5 has adjustable timing. Are you sure yours does not? If not you should not run full boost. Only add enough boost so that boost + motor timing is less than or equal to 30 degrees.

Need help!! I'm trying to calibrate my KO Helios to my RS speedo. After setting the throttle throw, I get the 1,2,3 lights blinking indicating that my radio signal is lower than expecte. I tried making different adjustments with the same result. I even tried an M8 and still have the same problem. Anyone have a clue as to what would cause this? Thanks.

What do you mean by (((Only add enough boost so that boost + motor timing is less than or equal to 30 degrees))) If motor timing is 12 degrees,do I use 88 boost .
thank you for your help

aha...you are running the stock 180 firmware, which doesn't have boost at all. It does, however, have timing advance which applies in hybrid/dual mode. Crank it to 80 and test. You should be able to end up at 90 or more -- just watch temps and gear accordingly

OK, then when you click the check box for "sensored only" mode the timing advance will change to boost. So, like I posted above, I would recommend starting around 20 boost and checking temps. The fixed-timing motors usually have around 12 timing advance built in.

Try reversing your throttle channel. Ko's, Futaba's and a few others need it reversed to make our "window."

Iv'e been looking at trying another speedo. Ive tried the SP GT and TC Spec. Found the TC Spec to be much faster then the SP in 17.5.

Now after reading through this thread i'd like to try the RS Pro. I know i will need the hot wire unit how ever what version of software will i need since im in Australia?

Thanks....

Alex

You'll need the special RHD version.
