id HIGHLY recommend picking up the drop down extension. it allows for your hands to be aligned (same level) and the angle position allows for your wrists to be at a more natural angle also.

combine that with the larger grip...and radio becomes EVEN more comfortable!

i suggest picking one up!

NTC3Freak, Hebiki is correct,the angled wheel extension is so comfortable to use. Specially in your long Nitro Mains!! I could say that I drive better with it, So I HIGHLY recomend it also!

Well...as with any radio...27 and 75 (and 26, 40, several others) just denote which frequency band the radio is trasmitting on. There are 12 27Mhz frequencies you can buy, and I believe 30 for 75. There is no difference, as to which one if better. I used 75Mhz for 6 years, now for the past 2 years, I have been using 27Mhz, never had a problem with either (glitching) and have always been using KoPropo products.

Just purchased the Helios radio system ths past week and used it for the first tiime this Sunday. I've used the Mars series radio system for years. The Helios feels great. Two questions.

Has anyone used Lipoly's in the transmitter. I currently use a 3s 2200mah pack in my Mars and plan to do the same in the Helios.

Does the angle type drop-down work with the Mars series transmitter.

27 band is the cleaner of the two bands which in theory should be less likely to receiver radio hits. The down side of 27 band is that it doesn't have as many different freq. as 75 band. KO staffshould be along shortly to cover or better explain anything that I may have missed.
