What specs will I need too run it properly without any issues?
Ie intel core or intel i5 or amd seperon etc
1.6g or 2.2g CPU speeds etc
2gig ram 4gig ram 1/2gig ram etc

cheers - jus don't wanna get one that won't work right with it

No 64-bit is the operating system. Most if not all CPU's now days are 64 bit compatible.

If you want to install it on a 64-bit system, it should work fine. If not, you can install as a Admin ( right click the .exe and select run as Admin ) and make sure it goes to the Program file folder X86 ( for 32-bit ).

It should work without problems.

Default Just a couple of questions

First I must say that even though this is not the speed control to have for stock racing, for everything else it just rocks. The is is the best feeling speed control I have used yet. Switching from brushed to brushless would have been much easier if I had just been using this controller the whole time. I think the easiest way to discribe it is that it has a middle. where the other controllers feel more like on or off switches. Even the more adjustable ones.

Anyway. I know I have read on here somewhere that the engineers are working on the timing ramp for stock racing. I was just wondering if they will make the controller user upgradable like the tekin and the mamba. The last update required the controller to be sent in to be upgraded.

Is there a good place to look for explanation of the setting up the software? Not the installing part or using it. But a better explanation of what each setting does and how and why it affects the performance of the motor. I think I have figured it out for the most part. But there was a lot of trial and error to get the setting to where I think the controller is performing at it peak. The downloadable kpd files are helpful, but most are almost the same as the default settings. Not that the defaults are good. Just that an explanation would help anyone who has been running this controller to get the most out of it.

thanks

If you are using windows it will find the correct drivers to use. You just need to pick the disk. Then it will come up with the correct drivers.

Ok sorry first plug in the adapter. Then when windows prompts you, tell it you have a disk. It should then find the correct drivers for the adapter.

I can be more specific depending on your situation. But that is pretty much how you install any usb specific drivers.

Another note is that the BMS software is looking for a com port. when I install the usb adapter it came up as com4. If you try to hook up the controller and the software complains that it can't use the selected com port you will need to open up the device manager and see what com port the device is using.

Hope this helps.

Lower frequency (higher position on the chart) gives more torque less runtime. Higher frequency (lower on the chart) gives more speed more runtime.

It takes the KO Staff or Melvin to explain the science behind this Speedo. once you get it, its not hard. I have played around with it and always go back to Melvins profile... I have never had a need to change it.

Try putting everything flat on the speedo... raise the first two or three sliders and then see what difference that makes. Lower the first 2 or 3 and see what difference that makes. This is the only way you will truely gain understandign

Thanks for the anticipation.
Although I would like to know about the upgrade path if they do release new software. ie are we going to be able to flash the firmware ourselves? Or will we have to send the controllers in again. I don't care if I have to pay for the upgrade, I just don't want to have to send the unit in everytime there is something new.

thanks

Very good question .............. early last year I had proposed the same concept to Kopropo USA, although after understanding the possible implications of software tampering it was a concern for KoPropo Japan.

Only time will tell as to the expected changes we can expect from KoPropo!!!!
