Just got my Helios Thursday. Love it! Raced today with it. HSR mode is actually a difference I could feel.

The balance and feel of the transmitter are great. The menu system is very easy to use and manipulate, which is a very good thing since the manual is painful to understand. The flow charts that go all over the page in different directions give me a headache. I've pretty much got everything figured out by trial and very little error.

octavio: Did you go through the set up menu to assign functions to the the buttons? This must be done first before any of the timer stuff functions. I believe I have my lap timer assigned to bt2 or 3. I don't have my transmitter near me at the the moment.

When you're ready to use the lap timer, you go to lap timer in the menu, where you should see:

Lap Timer
0:00:00

When you see that, you then press and hold the + and - buttons at the same time.

It should then be flashing.... READY

When you next pull the trigger, the timer starts. You then press the the button you assigned for each lap.


Hope that helps

Hello all.

Is there some here that tells you what all the extra setting on the radio do and how it would work if you did this and did that.

Ex.
Like the Expo, Trim rate
Response
Digital trim
Dual rate extra.
Th-speed

I need this info so I can see how it works on my 1.8.

This weekend I drove a buggy same every thing but the expo was -60 and it was so easy to drive.

Then I set my expo to -60 on my radio and wow same thing. Very easy to drive.

I had it on 0 all this time for the last year now.

But man it was so much easier to drive. Track was super slick but when I put it on -60 it had very little wheel spin and I was able to put the power much more smoother.
Well if you some can point me to the right place so I can see what else Iím missing to help me out.

Thanx Dibs

Actually, I'm not using a digital.

I'm using a Futaba 9402 in my B4, which is a fairly fast high-end analog, and it works just fine. ESC is a gt7.

It's in full HSR mode, even with ch select set to 2.

I switched it in and out and could clearly make out the difference. Definately felt more connected and responsive. Particularly noticeable when making countersteer type steering corrections.

i was going to get two sets

PDS-2343 FET ICS PDS-2344 FET ICS

right now i have the Air 359's in the truck and 359 in the 1.8.

but i was told that digital servo was a no no for 1.8.


but also KO PROPO Staff said that the new PDS servos are bomb proof.

KO PROPO Staff could you inlighting me on this.

dibs

1) Set travel to 100
Travel = dual rate

2) Set balance to very low number before reciever is on

3) Turn on reciever

4) Increase the values in balance to just before the linkage is bound, but not past!

5) Travel is then used to reduce steering throw while you're already on the track. Travel can be adjusted by the upper of the two thumb rocker switches as well as through the menu.

In the US, there are 6 channel in 27Mhz(1-6) band and 30 channels in 75Mhz (61-90). Outside the US, there are 12 channels in the 27Mhz band. KO sell crystals for all 12 channels in the U.S. for some reason.

Also, 75Mhz is close the frequency of flouresent light bulbs so you might experience glitching in some situations.
