I have the Helios. When it came out they had a problem with it getting swamped by the then new 4PK. The only admission of a problem by KO was "yes, send it in for repair". It really ruined the races I went to. In my opinion it was a really piss poor way of treating a known problem.
So I bought a 4PK.

I got my Ko K.Y.I. last week. For the last 20+ yrs. I've always run KOPropo. They have had top noth stuff all this time. I sure can't comment on the Futaba.....But the latest version of Ko's top of the line transmitter is something to behold. It's fast, feels great in my hands and has a few added features not found on other radios. I just put the drop down on it tonight. I will be more feedback over the weekend. I will be practicing with it Friday night.Stay tuned!

I have also brought the new KO radio, but it seems quite heavy, and the handle is not as comfort as 4PK though

The Ko Propo KIY weighs around 630 Grams with the batteries. After adding the Large Grip option, the 3D Extension Wheel, and an Aluminum Wheel replacement it now weighs at around 720 Grams. Hope this helps.

If you can...best to try out the grip first if it is indeed for you. I have big hands so I thought I needed the grip. But after putting it on, it felt kinda off. After a few weeks I removed it and put the original grips back. Now it feels more natural in my hands. The wheel extension is amazing. However, make sure you put on the extension foot first before attaching the wheel extension. This way the controller doesn't topple off easily. I learned the hard way and broke my antenna in the process when it fell off the table

thanks...i am really happy with the standard grip......a fellow racer told me to get the big grip but he did have a wrap around one on this m11x...i never dis so i think the standard feels fine for me....will try his 3d extension wheel before i go and buy one......best thing about this radio.....you can plug and play..

Can you please explain how you managed to change the steering wheel? I'm trying to change it on my KIY but I'm not able to get the original wheel of the mount. Would really appreciate your help! Thanks!

Rgds,
Andy
