If I get the handheld programmer it about $65.00+
decisions....decisions...
if you have a laptop.. just get the software for it. easier to set b/c its more visual and you can save more profiles.

what would be the shipping for the esc/programmer package from HK? i havent seen that combo here cheaper than $260. so it would be hell of a lot cheaper.

Hobby Mania in HK has it for $190.00

I'm estimating that shipping would cost around $10-15usd to the US.

Ko Staff,

Can I use my KR-302F with non-digital servos if I turn the switch to normal responds mode?

Altough I am not Robert or Naka, yes you can. I run the new 302 with analogs in my 1/8th scale and works just fine.

Also, if you check in your manual, you will see something on which "Channel: Select" you should be on. I believe it is page 66. It basically has a chart showing you different variations of receivers and servos and speedos, and then shows you the way you program the radio for each.

TFR,
Mike is correct in his statement. You can run analog servos with the KR-302F receiver if you change the tx to the correct setting.

Default Super Shotki Diode

Hi,

I just bought a secondhand VFS2000 speedo but it never came with a Shotki diode. Can I use normal 5amp diodes from my LHS - if I install 2 onto the motor ? I am running 27turn stock on my Yokomo SD with GP3300 cells.

Raymond.

yeah, with stock you arent pulling near the amps that you do with mod, so you should be ok with 2 normal diodes. you might want to try 3 though. the thing that hirts the speedo is going from full throttle to full brake.

Just received my Hara Twister today...
I see it only came with a 35v 1000uF capacitor...
is it safe to use the Novak 10v 4500uF or even 10,000uF on the ESC.? I assume yes... or is the stock cap work just fine.
