Default Weird runtime problem

Hey all,

I recently bought one of these to replace my cyclone TC and found a weird problem. I am running stock and could get 9 minutes of runtime off of a pack of GP3300 with my old cyclone. Now it barely gets 5 minutes.
My question is this, is the default factory setting not recommended for running stock? I don't have a setting adapter so I can't verify it. All I have replaced are the esc and a servo. I doubt that it is the servo since it is working flawlessly.
I have already checked for all the obvious stuff such as binding, motor etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ko Propo Staff,

I haven't been able to test my twister yest on my scope. Adam hasn't returned it yet. But I heard from a friend that was at the roar nats that the early versions of the twister had issues being programmed. The person was talking to someone that was pitting with Alex Lopez. Could this be my problem? Who knows.

Have you heard of this? Should I send an e-mail to Hot Bodies and ask them?

Let me know what you think of this info.

Thanks

Tim Stamper

I have 2 twisters and have no problems programming them via PC or the Handheld unit... the twisters are identical to the KO VFS-2000 so there should not be any problems... you may want to contact Robert at KO direct...

Tim-
I have never heard of this problem. Usually it is operator errors that cause settings to not up/download. Make sure that you have set the VFS to the programming mode. Hold the on/off button until the light comes on, then off and then on again.

If you are using the hand held programmer, make sure that you are using the menu function that reads Tx RX. This is to transmit and receive programming.

Many people use the wrong function to do this (Load Save function). This is to store the setting in your hand held programmer and NOT to up/download setting.
