that i know...but im using Futaba analog servo S3003. but anyway...thanks for reminding me...i've tried using as u advised...it works like charm...now i got back my steering and my throttle is damn faster...even for analog...it works better with futaba
i actually put negative curve on the throttle
thanks KO PROPO Staff. im in A main now...go go go Helios!!!

I just got my helios and I can't seem to start the lap timer. Not that it's important but I just can't figure out how to get it to work. I have it set to BT1 and it won't even come on the screen when I push the button. If I navigate to it through the menu I get the 00.00.00 but I cant get it to start (yes, I squeezed the trigger). Any ideas?

BTW, this is my 3rd KO radio in 7 years and I LOVE KO products, but, the instructions have NOT gotten any better since the original EX10 came out . How hard is it to hire someone that speaks fluent english as well as japanese to translate these manuals

If i am not mistaken, you need to go to the lap timer menu, then, I think you need to press both the round button to get the display to read 'ready'. Once its 'ready' then the throttle trigger starts it. I may be wrong as I haven't got the transmitter with me.

Good luck

Default shopatron

KO,
I'm just wondering how long an order takes to ship out through shopatron? I just ordered a Helios and some accersories and I just can't wait to get them!
Also, will the order ship out from CA? I hope so because I'm in norcal, so it shouldn't take very long to get here.
Thanks.

Yes they are located in So. California so you should get your order soon. I live down here and got my order within two days. Fast service!

Default Helios questions

The upcoming availability of Spektrum modules is making me think about getting a new radio. I've read this entire thread trying to understand the pros and cons of the Helios, and still have some questions:

1) Why does KO USA not provide the manual as a PDF? Other manufacturers do: See for instance http://www.futaba-rc.com/manuals/index.html .

2) Is it true that if some of my models can use Advanced HSR and others use Super HSR or normal rate, I must physically remove the module and flip some switches in order to change between my models? Given that many Tx problems reported on this thread were attributed problems with the module connector, it seems like a really bad idea to be constantly removing and replacing the module.

3) What value does the computer interface provide other than more convenience in loading tones into the transmitter? (And the ability to program servos -- something that nobody on this thread has said they've done.)

The value I'd most like to see is the ability to use the transmitter as a PC game controller -- is this provided?

I'm compelled to observe that PC serial ports are a legacy technology that many future PCs will not support. It would make a lot more sense for the transmitter to support a USB connection.

4) What level of technical cooperation is taking place between KO and Spektrum/Horizon and KO in the development of the Spektrum module for Helios? Does KO share technical information with Spektrum/Horizon on the module interface, or is Spektrum/Horizon required to reverse-engineer this interface?

Cheers,

--mark

hey mark.. ill try to answer some of your questions...

1. robert is basically the only guy at ko propo that does the website and support. he will be getting to it he's just a busy guy. (like right now he's in japan for a trade show. lucky guy. )

2. robert can clarify this for you but i think you can leave it on super HSR..and for your older receivers.. it'll just work in normal advanced HSR. i think? im not sure.

3. you can also program your VFS esc (if you have one) via the same interface. that way you can use it for the radio, servo and esc.

you can also buy a quick adapter to convert the serial port into USB.

4. i dont know.. but their technology is awesome lets hope it works well with the helios because i have never had glitching problems with my helios.

Are you talking about Thunder Power in vegas? I'll give them a call, I didn't see any KO specific packs on their website.

Can somebody give me the rough physical size of the helios so I can start looking for a case before mine gets here? Thanks.
