Hi there.

I have used a KO Helios with Spektrum Pro System for many years now with Futaba 9551 servos. Everything fine, no issues, no glitching. End of last year I have lost 2 throttle servos within short time. I have then changed to Savox 1251MG and then my problems begun. It is the same issues I was facing then Djiwie is describing. It was just kinda second no control. I have also tried to put in the capacitor, switched antenna position and so on. In the end I have changed to a Sanwa M11X and everything is fine. Also the Sanwa system is so much faster then Spekturm, I could not believe it. The first runs I made with the Sanwa setup I have missed almost every corner when steering in too early.
Since 4 weeks I have also changed my servos to Sanwa SRG-BLS (throttle and steering) and I can tell you that this is really serious. No comparison with Spektrum / Savox.

Default Outcome.

Thanks eberybody for the input. It seems that Savox know this, but choose to not warn people wich is in my opinion " a pity"

So its ditching the savox or ditching the spektrum. Everyone now knows it.
Anyone a advise where to get the M11x cheap?

Keep an eye on the for sale section, they pop up on there all the time. Especially since the M12 is just starting to hit so as people upgrade, you will start seeing lots of them.

To follow up.......

I saw the elect. tech. kid that switched from JR/spectrum to the m11x system. I asked how it was going. He was all smiles and also commented on the increased control speed and accuracy that was mentioned on here previously.

Thanks Jerry for your comments. It seems they are not for sale because the shops are waiting for the new M12. So its replacing the servo for now and keeping my fingers crossed for race day. i need the points to keep/consolidate 3e position in the national competition.

The problem persisted during the national but i managed 3e place in the final, so not that bad.
I bought the MT4 transmitter from Sanwa and haven`t got a glitch since.
So up to the last national race and hope for the best.

Very nive radio with lots of gimmicks.
