Hello, my name is Daniel Alvarado and I will be taking over Robert Morris' duties here at Ko Propo, USA. I want extend a Thank You to both Robert Morris and Mr. Nakagawa for giving me the opportunity to work for such a fine company. As many of you may know, Robert has done some extrodinary work over the past five years and I feel I have some big shoes to fill. I will do my best to ensure that the service you have come to know and expect will continue without a hitch. I look forward to working with our Ko Propo customers and drivers and ask for your patience while I become acquainted to my responsabilities. Thank you.

Daniel

Congrats Daniel on the position. I've known Daniel for a number of years and his has always been helpful everytime we've seen each other at the track. I'm know his enthusiasm for this hobby will enhance his position with KO.

How can we contact you directly at KO?

Regards,
Carl

Wow...Congrats Daniel. I'm sure you'll continue the high level of support.

And you better not give your roomy preferential treatment just because he finally won a big race.

Thank you Sohlman. And come on, Bmain should at least get some servo grommets. LOL

I've had my Helios for a few years and always take the battery out to charge. I've had another crack at using the charging jack, but the pack voltage jumps and the charger eventually false peaks. I then take the pack out and hook directly to the charger and it chargers away with a constant voltage increase and doesn't false peak. I'm tempted to put another jack in between the battery and the switch on the radio, but if anyone can tell me how to get the radio to charge via the proper charging jack would be great.

Use a different charger. There is a one-way diode inside the radio to prevent shorting out the battery incase something "conductive" gets in the jack. Because of this diode, some chargers will false peak or not even charge the battery.

I know that the KO chargers (discontinued) and Novak chargers seem to work fine. LRP and others do not like the diode.

Dam, I only have Duratrax Ice's. I'll work something out and may just put another plug in it, so the diode doesn't affect it.

There is nothing wrong with the jack, you'll have to remove the diode and jumper the PCB where the diode used to be to get it to charge correctly.

Cool, I see the diode on the side of the board. Is it possible to just run a wire over the diode instead of removing it? Like anything of this value, I'm weary of damaging it.
