It has been brought to my attention that when using the 2.4GHz module you must have the following settings in your Tx.

1. Steering Travel Max 70
2. Steering Balance Max 70%
3. Throttle High Point Max 60
4. Throttle Brake Max 60
5. Quick ST & TH in the EX-1 UR cannot be used.

Setting your Tx above the max settings may cause the vehicle to operate incorrectly.

For example, recently we have ad a few customers say their car will not go into reverse. If the throttle settings are not set to the above settings, yes it will not go into reverse because the max endpoint settings for the ESC will get goofed-up. Some modules may get away with it, but most will not operate correctly.

Please check your settings. I have found that with the above settings, the cars do respond better.

as i switched over to 2.4, i set up a template for all those exact settings on my ex10.

although, now, i noticed that my F1 that is still AM isnt working correctly. lol.

Thank you KO for posting this info. It appears to have resolved my "signal loss" and "glitching" problems I've been having (For now, let's hope it's permanent.:D )
If any other developments arise concerning the use of the RF901-SM 2.4ghz module for Mini-Z when used with the EX-10 Helios or the EX-1UR I would very much appreciate any and all updates.
Thanks again for your help!

Hi, THANK YOU KO for the above... Currently my settings are all to the max!!! I thought if all is max, then my car will be also maxed out.

Yet to try out your recommendations... By the way, your recommendations are they relevant to all KO TX all around your productions? What i mean is different batches of electronics will differ slightly, so your recommendations are they fit for all KO TX???

The settings listed are for all KO Tx's that you want to use with the 2.4GHz Mini-Z.

Thanks so much... The information really help a lot!!! Maybe KO should print the info and should be accompanied with the kit!!!

All my 2.4 mini Zs works far more better now. Can go reverse like normal AM board mini Z. :)

hi i've notice that everywhere has no stock on the rf 901sm module and ko has recently produce the new rf 902sm module. can this rf 902sm module work with the older tx eg. ex1 or ex1ur?

The 901SM module has been out of stock for a while. They should be in stock once again by next week.

The 902SM will only work with the new EX-10 eurus.

so that means those other tx eg. m11 or 3pk wont be able to use the rf 902sm as well? cause the previous modules work on those tx with the usage of the pn converter

The 902SM will only work with the EX-10 eurus because it uses our DDS (direct digital system). We only test our modules with our Tx.

KO PROPO Staff,
would you tell us about the potential of the NEW HELIOS EX-10 EURUS as it applies to the 2.4 Ghz MINI-Z in contrast to the
previous system ?

Thank You for your Time and Help.

5. Quick ST & TH in the EX-1 UR cannot be used.

Hi there,

Is the Quick ST and TH settings for the EX-1 UR displayed as the "S:QuickR" and "T:QuickR"?

Thanks,

Kevin.

The Eurus when used with the new 902SM module is a digital system. Meaning that the response is a little faster and the linear feeling of the system will make you feel more connected to the car. If you purchase the set with the setting module, it will allow you to plug in the Mini-Z setting card and program your Mini-Z or dNano through the transmitter.

You can still use your 901SM, AM or AD modules with this transmitter. The eurus will recognize that the module that you inserted is not a digital module and will automatically slow the response from DD to PP so that you can use those modules.

The trigger/brake lever gives better comfort by allowing you to conform the brake lever to your finger for added comfort. The steering has an all new rocker system for smoother action and better feeling.

The menu system is also new. Now when you want to go to the function menu, you have four main catagories: Model, Steering, Throttle and Options. This will allow you to navigate to the function that you want to use quicker.

First shipment should be arriving by Wednesday. If you have any other questions, let me know.

I am currently using the EX-10 Helios and I was just wondering if the same settings above apply to the dNANO as well?

Does these settings apply to the Kyosho/Ko EX-5UR ASF ?

I wouldn't know, sorry. I would assume that you wouldn't have to since the product is made specifically for the mini-Z.

I think that the default for the EX-5 was 70 steering... I didnt check it out for long, so I assume that it is the same as the other KO radios... I just turned it on and checked the menu and functions.

The EX-5UR Instruction Manual shows the initial settings for each menu item and some of them differ from those suggested by staff. For example, Steering Travel initial setting is 100, though Steering Balance is 70. I think I'd go by the book & tweak from there.

FWIW, just a satisfied user tossing it out there...

I know this may be a bit off topic, but I was wondering if these setting apply to other scales besides Mini-Z's? I am using these setting with my Mini-Z's and I have not had one problem :D. I am going to be using my Helios to race 1/10 scale Short Course as well. I just purchased the KO RF901-S Module and the KR210S receiver and I wanted to know if I should use the same setting as above and just tweak them? Thank you for all of your assistance KO Propo.

Steering settings will differ due to the servo end points. The ESC settings will also differ depending on what the manufacture calls for in the initial setting of the Tx to the ESC.

Hi,
Could you help me posting the basic settings for the EX-1 KIY for miniz?

I'm most interested in the Hi-point, to check if I got it right.

Also, whats the difference between the following options and which should be the best for miniz purpose:
1) ADV:Advanced High Speed
2) HSPD:Super High Speed
3) NORM:Normal Speed

The default on throttle and steering, is HSPD.

Hi KO Staff,

I have the same question as Chac Bolay, what is the throttle high point for KIY EX1 ASF for Mini Z, does the default setting taken into account that it is for Mini Z and using the default setting (which is 100) will use the full range of ESC on the Mini Z board ?:confused:

Anyone with the basic Ko Propo EX-1 KIY V.3 Tx settings?

Hello-

I recently acquired an EX-1UR, with both a 901SM module and a RF-501a 27AM module. I noticed that the settings listed on the first post:

1. Steering Travel Max 70
2. Steering Balance Max 70%
3. Throttle High Point Max 60
4. Throttle Brake Max 60
5. Quick ST & TH in the EX-1 UR cannot be used.

Also seem to apply to the RF-501a 27AM module, in that settings above what's listed result in glitchy behavior.

What I'm wondering is, am I in fact limited to 70% of my steering range, and 60% of throttle? I'm used to controllers with end point adjustment (EPA), and I'm not sure how that works here with regard to the settings on the controller and the entire range of steering travel and motor speed.

You're not actually limited in throttle and brake in so much as 60% is actually
all you need to achieve 100% throttle....its similar to my Futaba conversion where setting the epa at 60 vs it being left at 100 you don't gain or lose any throttle top end while improving trigger response with the tighter end point.

as for steering its very similar percentage to still achieve 100% and then use your dual rate dial to adjust for track conditions

As a word of caution, be sure not to set the steering end point too high, as over driving the servo can burn the motor out. I.E on your radio, never set the steering end point above 70%. You can check if it's set too high by turning the wheel on the transmitter all the way in either direction. If you hear the servo motor buzzing continuously at the limit, it's probably set too high.

Thanks for the info. On my old MX-A, I would set the endpoint by turning hard to one direction, and reduce the endpoint from 100 until I could see/hear the servo motor stop pushing and see the wheel turn back toward center one click. Then I knew that my steering was traveling from neutral to the full extent of its range. I'm not quite sure how to do that same thing with this new (to me) controller.

disclaimer: I just got this controller, so I'm doing all this setup visually and aurally, and trying to just set up all my various cars so the models are entered, throttle and steering are not reversed, and the steering and throttle endpoints and range are set correctly. I have yet to get anything on the track, so perhaps my concerns are unnecessary, and I'll be dialing my steering back to 40% once I get on the RCP. I mostly just want to make sure I can dial my steering and speed to the full amount of range for various driving conditions/track layouts.
