Sorry for the slow responce watching the RROC results live.
No I think even at a huge track like Tamyia 100' is far enough.
You would be surprised to see how far 100' is while driving.
Also there will ba another version later for out door and off road tracks.
Right now 100' works fine for me.

Now back to watching RROC

Your best bet would be through KO's shoptron website.

Default Exclusive company....

an interesting tidbit for all the Helios owners out there...

The last 3 world champions use the Helios (Hara, Rheinard, Surikarn)

Masami runs Ko.

last weekend's Reedy Race of Champions out in Southern California. 9 drivers in the A-main in the Invite class were using Ko Propo radios. of the 9 drivers, 6 were using the Helios. the other three were using the vantage (dual stick) radio.

How many of the Reedy guys were also running spektrums?

Well this may be a little know fact....
If you are a sponsored driver from a radio gear manufactor than you will have to run cyrstals....Kinda the point....The best radio and receiver combo...bla bla bla..
I didn't see anyone using it at REEDY but if you go to club races or if you catch some of the teams practicing you will see them using it....Kinda funny if you ask me...But politics are what drive all the monkeys to buy what the winner uses thinking it will make them win and really the only thing that will really make them win is pracitce....I think that the reason you see these guys winning all the time is practice....They go to a track three and four days before an event and get the best possible setup and practice where and how the track handles, then they can just sit back and worry about how they can pass and win...
I am starting to realize this and when I have a series race coming up I go the week before the race and practice and setup my car for that track...If it is possible for that....LOL
Sorry just long winded or something...

I was just watching some pics made on the reedy race '05, and I saw Ralph Burch jr. using a left handed helios, is it available or was it just a prototype?
I own a helios and as far as I know there's no way to convert it to a left hander.

Ralph has always used left-handed radios. Ko Propo in Japan custom builds leftys for him. They did that with the older body style and did it with the new. So...just for Ralphy...

Are you sure that the picture is not reversed? Yes it is a left handed radio that was custom made for Ralph. One of two in existance. We keep the other here as his back-up. Sorry, they are not for sale. They were very expensive to make.

I'm sorry if this was asked before, but I feel I have a question on the PC Interface. Is it worth buying? At 70 Dollars I think it's quiet expensive and from the Kopropo website I can't see the details I really want to make a decision myself. Also downloading the interface program from the site did not give me enough information to get me really enthausiastic about it.

I also noticed some discussions about carrying cases for the Helios. Perhaps the Yeah Racing aluminium case is a good alternative? You can buy one at 30 USD at rcmart.com. Just a tip.

Gr,
Mike
