Donīt know exactly yet, Iīm running the 415 or maybe the old and proven EVO III there. I donīt have any special setup Iīm running similar setup usually. Just the handout tires are different but I donīt know what they will use this year.
Maybe will be just the 2. nd race with the 415.

What do you look for when programing the frequency?

Does running a high final frequency improve top speed?

Is there a limit to how low you can set the frequency before you put the esc at risk?

Looking at 27 turn stock programing, but any advice information, insight or reasoning would be helpful.

Default Actual Freq. and Freq. No. Cross Reference

Hi KO Staff,

I have bought the VFS-1 yesterday and is still studying all the manuals including the setting card, the setting adaptor and some of the sample setting sheets from both KO USA and Japan website. During my study, I find out that the relationship between the actual frequency and the frequency no. in the setup sheet is not linear. The difference is listed below. Could you lead me to the documentation of the cross reference of the actual freq. and freq. no.

Freq. (No.) Difference
1.31 (10) - 0.93 (1) 0.38
2.03 (20) - 1.31 (10) 0.72
3.12(30) - 2.03(20) 1.09
4.57 (40) - 3.12 (30) 1.45
7.14 (50) - 4.57 (40) 2.57
9.98 (60) - 7.14 (50) 2.84

May I also have your enlightenment on this setting such as the reason why and the benefits gained.

Just want to learn more. Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Kenny

NGO,
No, this is not the case with the VFS-1 Pro. The new speedo is very nice. You only need the one short capacitor and the one new and improved schottky diode, and that is it.

Hi KO Propo Staff,

May be I am not writing the exact name so that you do not give me any response on my question. A little bit disappointed.

For the documentation on cross reference between the frequency no. and the acutal frequency, I have already figured it out by copying them from the setting adaptor. What a painful job to copy 64 readings (pressing the button on the adaptor and jotting down the figures)

For the enlightenment on the frequency curve, it may be your commercial decision that it could not be shared. In that sense, I think it is understandable.

For those who are using the VFS-1, you can find below each frequency no. against actual frequency. Happy to share.

Freq. No Actual Freq. (in kHz)

Kenny, Robert might be out on a business trip and that's why he has not responded. I am sure he will answer as soon as he sees your post.
