There's NO way to really reduce or remove it. Best you can do is set the point at which reverse kicks in on the TX and then get used to hitting it quickly and precisely.

You could spend another $100 and switch to an 03 board!

Hate to say it, but SALES??? If you could "fix" the 02 boards, they wouldn't sell as many 03 boards??? Or maybe its not physically possible??? :confused::confused::confused:

I hear ya! F1 suffers from the same problem! Just got my second one yesterday and was frustrated :mad: with the delay (my first one has an 03 board in it :cool:).

Different complaint about 03 board with similar thoughts about a hack fix going on HERE (http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36145). May be worth keeping an eye on...

Well, yea, sales figures. You buy a MA now, dont like the board, buy the 03 upgrade board kit. Same w/ F1. Sucks, but makes perfect sense from marketing perspective.

Watch, they'll probably put the new boards into MAs and F1s a bit later to yet again boost sales.

They probably had a few thousand of the original ASF boards produced, and need to sell them. I dont really find anything terribly poor about the reverse delay. When you adjust the trim correctly, it usually is no problem at all to reverse. All of my MR02/AWD/F1's have the standard board, and I dont plan on changing them to MR03 anytime soon.

Eugene, I've heard that a lot, but haven't been able to find that magical setting.:confused: Going from an F1 with an 03 board to one with an 02 board was a huge adjustment for me.:o Maybe when you're down here for the CC you can show me how?

I cant tell you how many times I accidentally reversed while braking on my MR03's :rolleyes: I will definitely give you a hand ;)

+1 on this scenario. I run my brake light so I can use it in more situations. I find myself pumping it where I need hard braking, and with the 03, that has put me facing the wrong way at an apex more times than Id like to admit.
