Hi, I'm thinking of getting the VFS-1...however I have the following questions:

(1) With a BEC voltage of 4.0V, is that enough to drive a Futaba 9451 servo?

(2) Which is better for programming the ESC, the Multi-setting adapter or the ICS PC interface cable?

(3) What is the main difference between the Pro and Pro Competition model? Which one is better for a club racer like myself?

Many thanks in advance

1. yes, it should be. and it is adjustable.

2. PC lets you "see" the throttle curve. handheld is more portable (much faster once you get used to it, and no need to bring a laptop to the track)

3. Pro Comp has a higher temp cutoff (for running hot mods like 6-7T). for a club racer like yourself, you will be very happy with the Pro model.

Hi,

Got my VFS-1 today and after a few tips, on the KO website for setups.
On the Current limiter it say '12' does this mean stage 12= 260A or 120A?
The Cut of voltage/ power save voltage (is this same thing) says '0' or should be set 2.3v and is this OK for the KO reciever KR301F and servo PDS-2143.

Going to try out the settings on KO website or does any one have a tweeked setup for 27T


Thanks for your help

You can get a generic version that sells for $25.00. Search a forsale section as someone posted it before.

12 = 120A.
cutoff voltage should be around 2.5-3.0.

for a "tweaked" 27T profile. go to page 36 and check it out. posted by Alex C and me.

Default NEWBIE question on KO VFS-1

Okay, at the risk of looking like a NOOB, what is the difference between this and a Novak Cyclone with a Pit Wizard?

Please explain in brief. Also I would like to know is the BEC adjustable to 6V to get maximum performance from the servo and others (i.e. personal transponder).

Thanks.

Cyclone is the ESC and Pit Wizard is the programmer for the Cyclone ESC.
