i was doing that until i pushed one of my pins loose. this cause me all sorts of grief one weekend. So I fear pulling the module with any frequency. those pins on the back are soo fragile. they were never ment to be see with any frequency.

Hi Shookie, Check out the Speedmind Helios soft case/bag. One of the guys I race with has this case and the radio fits perfectly with the spektrum module still loaded in the back, the case has foam cut out under where the module sits to protect the spektrum antenna.

My Speedmind case is working great with my Helios and Spektrum. Padding is cut to accommodate Spektrum antenna.

Only problem is that I really miss my signed red Matt Francis tranmitter case.

hi guys

got a question about the reponse modes

at the back when you take out the module you'll see a switch
- high speed
- normal

i was wondering if anyone remembers what their radios came factory set at? if they have already taken out the module and flicked the switches

i dont wanna take my module out as i've heard that by doing so you could loosen the pins in the module or something.

appreciate any help

thanks guys

Taking out the module for one time can't hurt!
It's a bit fragile, but not that fragile, trust me...

The radio comes with the switch in the High (H) position and 2 CH mode (Advanced HSR) from factory. Pulling the module out does not hurt the pins. SLAMMING the module into the radio does. You can brake the solder joints and/or the PCB trace. Just take care when re-installing the module.

using the ko propo crystals is your best bet. they are calibrated exactly at the factory giving you the cleanest signal. you can try the spektrum module if you want something synthesized. the spektrum has gotten the best feedback yet from helios users.
