Default FAIL SAFE

Can someone please point me to a small fail safe unit that will work with this radio? I installed a dynamite micro unit #DYN2553 and in either of the 3 modes the car just freaks out when i turn off the transmitter to fake a signal loss. my steering servo goes crazy and it just turns left and right... the throttle does the same sometimes. I am afraid this will do more harm than good. on my 3pk the failsafe didnt mess with the steering at all.

Thanks,

I love this radio though !

Default KO failSAFE

The KO failsafe unit should work. I think the part # is 60221.

Does any after market fail saves work besides the KO propo one?

I was told to just forget the fail safe period.

You can either open the file as a text file and manually input the data. Or download the Helios program and then download and open the file using the program and manually input the data. Either way you will have to input the data.

Default Look Faster???

I was looking at Scotty Ernst's Helios and noticed his steering wheel is cool, looks like a mag wheels! Looks expensive also.

Was shy to ask.... Until he came up to me and said...
"cool radio, there's a secret here to make you faster!" and asked if he can do it. I said sure!!!!

This is what he did!!! Looks better/faster, sorrypicture is a bit blurred!

Ummm, that's the stock steering wheel without the cover. Pop the cover on your radio and see.

yep stock wheel with cover off or you can put on the mars-r wheel like hara does and the nice bling-bling gold screws.

Hi,

a couple of days ago one of the guys I race with came over to me with his Helios. He was trying to alter the "steering" balance" but he could only make changes to the right side. When you are in the steering balance meny you rotate the steering wheel all the way to the right to make the * appear indicating that you can now make adjustments. But when he rotated the steering wheel all the wat to the left ,the * didn't appear. So he could not adjust the left side.

So I checked my Helios and it was the same!

Is there any other setting that causes this? I have adjusted the steering balance earlier but now I can only adjust one side.

What's going on?

Thats what I do too to unlock the Helios Turbo mode.

Usually when I'm faced with tough competition I will pop the cover... which is usually.. all the time..

My car moves faster... I could have sworn!
