just a correction its not modulation, but shift
Modulation is the mode the radio tx's with IE: FM or AM (or SSB or SB, for you Ham radio buffs)

ever considered dollar/yen exchange rate for price going up? US $ has been going lower against the Yen for a while now. Just a thought.
The yen has been at all time highs recently. There is a lot of speculation thought that the Japenesse government will intervene before the dollar gets to weak though. A weak dollar means just what we have seen, higher prices for us. I have been following it a little for work, you would be suprised what affects your mortgage rates. An now back to our regularly scheduled programing.

So when is the Spectrum going to be available for the KO, i think i may wait for it.

It's on my GONNA have list. Already preordered mine with an extra RX. Now I just have to get me a Helios. For some reason I can't convince my friend to sell me his back up transmitter. So anyone that is looking to get rid of just a TX lemme know.

Also the I used the JR XS3 receiver, and that works great with my Helios. I remeber someone saying that someone at KO PROPO said futaba crystals will work. Well that person is not correct for the helios. Anyhow, now everyone knows
to throw a monkey wrench into above.. on 27 band, JR crystals don't work, but Futaba does, so does Airtronics. Just not JR! Didn't try any Hitec crystals on 27 band though.

So who ever said Futaba crystals will work in Helios is partially correct, just not on 75 band. Anyone in Europe try with 40 band??

Cool. Very patriotic. I find the Large grey grips the most comfortable.

Well 2 racedays on my new helios and man, love that radio. I got my new case today and got the foam fitted. The only sad note, I now know that it really is me who can't drive and my old M8 wasn't broken. Oh well.

TimXLB- Turn around time is about 1-2 days on most repairs. If it is a special order item, then you are looking at about 3 weeks. Did you take the radio apart? If you tried to do your own repairs, the labor rate triples! j/K

RBLove- What up bro! How's everything? Hope that you enjoy the holidays.

ROFLMAO!!

Hey ko staff, I have a question, I have a helios, and from day one it had something that would move around inside, is there something i can do to fix that? It seams that others have the same rattle. one of my buds has the same radio, and it has the same rattle.
