I've just switched from KO Ex-10 Helio to the new UR 2.4ghz, and love it. It defenitely feels lighter and more confortable for me. I love the new KO micro 2.4ghz receiver as well. The KO UR has cool new features that the Helio doesnt have, and the UR has a new upgraded faster processor.

Just wanted to mention here that Robert at KO USA was able to get the Helios C2/ EX-1 UR replacement wheel foam here to the USA. I ordered replacement foam on Wednesday and it arrived today (Friday). Thanks so much to Robert and the KO staff for great service!

Default Wheel Extension

Anyone know where I might find a copy of the instructions for the wheel extension for the Helios? KO online doesnt have it.
Any help would be great

Anybody having trouble with the antenna "flopping" around on the transmitter module ? Basically the antenna wire is the only thing holding things together.
This is on the 2.4 by the way.

Ok so I want to swap the battery tray out for a lipo pack. I get the lipo battery and had to reverse the + and - to charge it for some reason(its now configured as if I were using it to power a reciever).

So before plugging it into the radio and possibly wiring it backwards a causing a short in my brand new radio I wanted to know if someone from KO could tell me of the 3 pole's in the radio which one is +,- and since there is a third I can only assume its a dummy pole? The manual says to plug it in and even shows an illustration but it doesn't show a red or black for + or - so I'm not sure what is what.

Again I am only assuming but I would think the + for the battery tray and the + for the plug would be on the same side but I want to be sure before I power up.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

theisgroup is correct. It is NOT wired like a receiver pack.

jag88- If you live in North America, you can send it in to KO PROPO America and new pins will be installed and sent back to you at no charge.
