Is this a hard or a soft case?

Default Advanced HSR

Hey guys, I just got my Helios yesterday and LOVE IT! I'm kinda confused on the HSR though. I race last night and today with my radio set at factory defaults, which apparently is Advanced HSR mode. Now from what I've read, I should have fried my servos, and possibly one of my recievers (or at least had problems with them). I'm using the following: KR-302F w/ KO 2113, KR-302F w/ 94357, and JR RS300 w/ KO 2123, and my radio set in Advanced HSR mode! I thought I'd have problems if I did this?
The only reason I noticed because I was trying to turn on AHSR a couple of minutes ago by using my KO 2123 servo with a 302F reciever, and I took off the module on the Helios to find it already set to high speed mode (towards the top, according to the manual), and the channels set to 2. From what I can tell in the manual I've been running AHSR with incompatable equipment...and no problems that I know of so far.
Whats up with this?

Yeah, just call up Robert or Naka at KoPropo USA (310-532-9355) and ask them for one...

It may work but I wouldn't guaranty it. You may run into problems later.

This is probably an obvious answer, but want to double check, I have a mars R with a *ton* of rx/tx chrystals, will my crystals work with this new rx/tx?

All KO crystals can be used in KO radio systems as long as they are the correct frequency and band for the radio. 27MHz FM, 75MHz FM, 27MHz AM.

KO PROPO Staff,
Does shortening the servo wires void the warranty? I have some appropriate connectors and I just want to check. Thanks.

There is no warranty on servos. We do back manufacutre's defects and that is about it. Changing the servo lead isn't a problem unless you wire it wrong and damage the PC board.

The modules may look the same but they are in fact different. The Helios modules are a higher output of RF signal. The Mars modules are the same, just different colors for the different radios.

I plan on getting a Helios as soon as my M8 sells and I have a question about receivers. I have some receivers from my old KO Mars EX-1 2000 edition. Will they work with the Helios and do they ever need to be sent in for tuning? Thanks.
