Thanks guys--I THINK I've got it. Of course the proof will be in the puddin' on Sunday. I really hope I like this bad boy and can justify ordering a couple more so I can throw my Q2's away and be rid of the bad taste LRP put in my mouth.

Initially, i'm going to be putting VFS 1 in my 12th car, with 302 reciever and 949 servo. Probbaly be running rx pack - i did see the post a while back that the positive reciever wire needs removing and both switches switched. Can't be so lazy now, LRP speedo only needs rx pack switching one!!
When using the KR-302F receiver you can use any of the power save settings. Using this receiver, I would set it at 2.3V. Those using Spektrum must set it at 3.5V or higher.

The power save is the voltage at the battery pack before the esc will divert power to only the steering.

For 1/12th scale using a Rx pack will require that you remove the red wire going to the receiver from the esc. Both switches will need to be turned on.

Hi Matt

And... Robert might tell you that you must replace the +ve to reprogramme the ESC ... but I have found this not to be the case. I have only used the hand controller with the +ve removed from the ESC plug but it works just fine.

Yes it is a pain having to deal with both switches!

Cheers

Can anyone tell me what the numbers mean for the frequency settings or where to find the table?

eg. freq=36, so on and so on.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is a function on the setting adapter to convert the Number to real frequency no.
I forgot the function name, maybe "Frequency View". Please read your setting adapter manual for that.
