Greg- You'll have to make the decission on your own. Once you jumper that diode, that jack is always "live" and you'll have to be very careful or you could have a big problem on your hands. It also voids warranty on the radio.

Thanks, I can't see an issue with the jack being live all the time as I use the same jacks on my cars for charging and haven't had a problem. Something physically has to get down in the plug which conducts. Chance is very very low of it happening.

I've had a play and I think the amperage I was charging at was too high for the diode. I normally charge at 1amp and dropped to 0.5amp and it seems to charge fine.

Is there anyway to loosen up the steering without getting play in the center? Im one of those drivers who doesnt turn the wheel a lot so I find myself basically not turning the wheel and screwing myself up so I have been loosening the wheel so I apply less pressure to make it turn. This causes some play in the middle though

Here are detailed instructions on how to do it with an M8, it is pretty much the same on the Helios http://www.rcccs.com/index.php?showtopic=887 http://www.rc411.com/pages/howto.php?howto=16&page=3

Yes, of course you can change it

I'm using the wheel from my Mars 2000 Special Edition

According to KO it will be a while...KO is very conservative and typically releases its products when they are 100% tested completely ready.

The KO system will be a quick as its HSR system...

I'm still using crystals...can't wait for the 2.4ghz system as well
