Thanks for the replies so far. Just wondering if Robert or Hebeki can confirm this from a company viewpoint.

Unfortunately the factory setting for the Team Orion's version is all preset with 5-6cells cut-off.


The ICS USB adaptor kit (KO61018) will work for both version: Team Orion and KO.

The factory default setting is set for 5-6 cells. You will need to program it if you want to use LiPo.

Any of our ICS communication adapters ( USB or serial) can program the ESC. You will need to download the software from our site here http://www.kopropo.com/america/index...d=21&Itemid=59

Ya, very good....I saw Josh Numan and Randy Caster win with the speedo and Im pretty sure Josh Cyrul is running one in his car because he runs for KO.

unplug your escc from your reciever. plug in your usb cable to your esc. at this point everything should be connected. are you using a laptop? if so you have to figure out which comm port your usb cable is in. just go to control panel then dbl click the system icon, then you will see a series of tabs open the one that says hardware then click on device manager find the one that says ports and comms and dbl click on it look for where it says usb ko propo and thats where it will tell you what comm port its in. open the bmc program and in the bottom right you can change the port put in the port it said your usb was in. it should say comm ok now to pull the info off your speedo you just look to the lower left and find the icon that says read all click that and it will read all 5 profiles on your speedo so when you make any changes you go to the lower left and find the icon that says write all click that and when its done writing then your done and can unplug everything. hope i got this all right lol pm me if you have any more questions
