Yeah, but it saves me buying a $35 serial-USB adapter and HOPING it works.

Domo, thanks very much. Now to see if I can buy one state-side.

Hey--I'd asked a while back (well, couple months ago...) if anyone had a suggested starting point program for 19-turn 1/12 racing.

Anybody?

Thanks bud--been there. Unfortunately, they show 19-turn TC but nothing for 1/12.

So...still looking.

No offense, but the instructions that come with the VFS-1 go through it step by step.

It's physically the same esc. They just tweaked the chip and mapping and stuff for Japan specs (4 cells, 23T, etc)
