I know PN make the adaptor, but I would like to make a more compact style module. I have found a pin chart on the mini-z definitive guide and was wondering if its as simple as just switching up the pins or is there more than that?

Can anyone using PN KO Module Adaptor give a review. Any problems at all or is this a solid performing product?

it looks like KO PROPO is coming out with their own adampters for their 2.4ghz module. check out the pics from this link posted by JOSEC

Good find, that definitely does looks like a new KO adapter for other brands including M11 and looks like it's framed in that plastic housing to make sure the module fit is right & tight.

BTW what a treasure trove of a link that is :)

I have tryed the PN adapter, and feel that the performance with the M11 is a far cry from what you get with a KO transmiter!! I am a long time M11 user, and I really hate to admit it, but for ASF i think you are better of running KO gear.

thanks for the info on the pn adapter... is this the same one? or something quite similar? i think this one is made by "route 246", but might be just repackaged as ''route 246''... wonder if anybody can confirm this

Wow, that's good to know thanks. Can you elaborate a little bit? In what ways do the adaptor on M11/M8 perform differently than the KO Tx with ASF?

Thanks

The adapter branded rout 246 looks exactly like the one from PN.

As for the diferences, if you setup a ASF board with you computer to run with a KO radio, and just switch the module over to the M11, the car is IMPOSSIBLE TO DRIVE. The steering get's really slow!!!! You have to dial in more speed with the ASF cable to get the car to steer properly, and I feel that as you increase the speed settings in the board you sort of losse some 'resolution' in the steering.

I have tried the 2.4 with both Helios and 3pk, with the 3pk I feel that the steering is a tad litle bit slower then with the helios, but with the M11 it makes the car impossible to drive. I think it was the speed setting, with the helios i was running 3 or 4, and with the m11 had to go all the way up to 8 or 9.

You can get the car to work, I just think that it's not as perfect as it should be. You can probably try to lessen this with careful tuning of the ASF board, and some tweaks on the radio, but for someone getting new gear you should really look into this. Ideally try someone else's M11/ASF combo.

For now I have my 2.4 set aside. When I get some time I will try and see if I can get a good baseline setting for the ASF board, and see if there is any way to tweak the radio/adapter board. Anyway, i'm thiking that I might just bite the bullet and get an EX-UR :rolleyes:

Hello

I felt the same to run with my radio sanwa m11 , and then I try the friends radio KO propo EX-10 helios and they are more faster in response.

Now i decided to by a Radio Ko Propo EX-1 UR is most similar to sanwa m11, adapts itself better to small hands.


Best regards.

z3zinho & Pedro silva Thanks for your responses,

After reading that I think I will just keep my Helios which I'm using with AD band right now and buy a 2.4 for it as well for my future 2.4 car car. As for my other RC cars I will probably go with the non-module accepting M11x since actually the KOs are just too small for my hands and fingers but will have to do for MZs.
