Harshguy,
With the width set to 0 the light should instantly go off. Go to the Adjust VR setting and recalibrate your radio, this might help. Hope it works out.

NTC3Freak,
I ran both the 3PK and the M8 at one point in time or another. I can tell you that after purchasing my Helios I never even looked back. In my opinion it's the radio to have. Ease of operation and unmatched tunability, how can you beat it.

Had an M8 for 4 years and now switched to Helios.
One thing for sure : Helios is lighter than others.
Big advantage for me on Gas Powered Race.

Nope ...light still blinking, tried resetting VR and it's still blinking, I think it's a timer for some kind of thermo-nuclear detonation.

Make sure you're racing somewhere I'm not when that happens....LOL I hope that you get it worked out without having to send it in. I'm sure that KOPROPO staff will be on here in the morning with a helpful answer.
