Analog servos will work in the Super HSR or Normal modes. They will not work with the Advanced HSR.

You can not use a Fail safe adapter with Advanced HSR. The signal is to fast and the fail safe will think that you are getting a radio hit. You can use it in the other response modes.

I just found out that my Helios cannot adjust Left turn travel in steering balance anymore. What's wrong? I can adjust right side.

Aku, if the pots are not calibrated, when you turn the wheel to the left, the * doesnt come up, right? Well, once you readjust the pots, all will be back to normal.

How to do that:
1: Turn on
2: Scroll down to "ADJUST VR"
3: Press Enter
4: Scroll to "YES"
5: Press Enter
6: Turn the wheel left
7: Turn the wheel right
8: Press Enter
9: Pull Full Throttle
10: Full Brake
11: Press Enter
12: Press Enter again

All done, back to main menu. Now you have adjusted the pots in the radio, and are all recalibrated.

I got to use the new radio yesterday and it was different than my old M8. It will take some time to learn all of the different menu's and what not but it was decent. The grip of the radio was different. Due to my large hands it needs the bigger grips or I will use tennis wrap like I did on the M8. Everyone says that the drop down wheel is the way to go but I would have to hold a radio that actually had it on to see if it's worth me shelling out the cash. If I don't like the feel then I wasted some cash. It's also pretty cool that a KO rep is always on this thread answering questions.

Well, they just get out of calibration. The ones Ko uses are so accurate, that if they get knocked out of calibration, just a little, you won't be able to set the balance. Al least, that is what I think... . Probably if you knock your radio against something....or drop it, like I have...
