Why? The Twister 2 is a rebadged VFS-1.

I thought the 2.0 was the VFS 2000 and the 2.1 was the VFS-1.

Twister is a rebadged VFS-2000

2.0 is a rebadged VFS-1
2.1 is a rebadged VFS-1 Pro (higher temp cut.. .etc etc)

How would I go about doing this? I want to run the 12th scale stock profile on the web site.

Thanks... after I posted I realized that I could've just done that.

Anyone not using the original schottky diode? I saw so many top drivers using their Twister 2.1 with Novak 36AMP diode instead! Any clue on this?

For those that are interested, this is the stock profile for the Hara Twister 2.

We just sent in a non-working Twister 2 and KO confirmed that it is a VFS-1. It does have a modified profile loaded but is still just a VFS-1. The Twister 2.1 is the VFS-1 Pro Competition Version that has the higher thermal limit. Our Twister 2 was non-repairable with a replacement offering of the VFS-1 J model. All internals are the same but just has the power leads pre-installed.

I just installed a Twister 2.0 on an 1/12. I have some set up problems. I'm supposed to hold the button down and turn the switch on and wait until the light comes on, but the light goes on when I turn on the switch. What am I doing wrong? This is on an 4 cells 1/12 using Futaba HRS receiver and digital servo without an receiver pack. Any pointers?

KO VFS-1 requires using their diode which is 80amps but Novak ones is only rated at 36amps. Do you think it's safe to use Novak diode on KO ESC?

With the B.E.C. voltage being only 3.4 max, what does that do to servos rated at 6.0 volts? Will it make my .06 second JR z9000s perform like a 3003? I would really like to get one for my Evo IV. If that's the case, I guess I could just throw my KO 2123 FET servo in there...

Are you trying to change the program or set the esc to your Tx?
