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?

So...still looking.

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

nope, only that theres also a Hara Twister 2.2, which no doubt would be based on the new ESC

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