I just received a new wheel for my Helios and I can't see how it will fit?

The description on the site I got it from says Ko Prop Ex-10 Helios...

It has 5 small screws whereas my Helios has one large one... Am I missing something?

Yeah. If you didn't order it you're missing the adapter piece from the wheel to the transmitter. As it says on the site:
"***Remark: Transmitter Adapter must be purchased separately."

Boy am I lucky there is a track open on Mondays! I went running last night in NJ and the shop had the Hiro Seiko wheels in stock. Curiously, he had Steering Wheels, individual Mounts for the different radios, and to add to the confusion he also had kits. The kits included all of the Mounts in the box. These were the models packaged before the start to package the Steering Wheels and Mounts seperately.

I liked the 5 spoke in flat gold with a machined silver lip (kit w/ the mounts), and I couldn't resist a brake rotor with a gun metal gray anodized caliper. I took both...

After putting 2-sided tire tape on my stock Helios steering wheel when it loosened up and making do with an aging wheel, the HS wheel feels really good in comparison. I steer with my thumb and pointer on the wheel and my middle finger on the body of the radio. The new wheel gives great reaction even with a soft hold and light touch.
