Hi,

I didnít solve my problem of programming electronics of MR03VE with I.C.S USB adapter set (No.82080) and VE Manager.
But finally I found another solution. Maybe it could interest you to avoid the same troubles...
I bough BT (bluetooth) Programmer designed for Android OS device and downloaded free soft. Now it works very comfortable from Samsung Galaxy S3.

I summarized all steps of installation in small article including pictures:

What I miss now is experience with right VE-electronics and car set up, influence of different parameters for car properties and car behaviour on different tracks.
If somebody can bring description, explication and recommendations of set up MR-03VE, button by button, this experience I warmly welcome.

Thanks :-)

Where did you get adapter?

BT Programmer available:
- on ebay : http://www.ebay.de/itm/390644805508?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649
- or directly on producers email: sat-expres@seznam.cz (it was also my option to get the BT Programmer, received in some few days)

Also what app/program did you use?


My chassis to be programate is MR-03VE, so I take my OS Android phone Samsung Galaxy 3, on the phone linked Google App page:
https://play.google.com/store/search?q=Mini-Z%20ICS&c=apps
and there I selected "VE+bluetooth" version of the soft (completely on the right side):

Before download, Google will ask you to register (if you are not yet) or Sign-in to the Google applications.

Step by step proces of installation and application on Mini-Z car I tried to describe in small article including pictures:

Cool stuff. I'll probably try a generic bluetooth module off ebay, add a regulator and a circuit to combine the tx and rx serial lines into one and give it a shot with the Android software.

Ok... I can now say I've seen it all when it comes to RC obsession.

How many tuning options can exist for an RC car? Next stop... Cranial electrode implantations for the ultimate RC controller respone time!

Takes too long for my brain to send the impulses down to my hands! :rolleyes:

That's probably gonna happen at some point, new research came out where a guy was able to control another guy's arms through transmitted brainwaves from another building over!

Anyways, I wonder if it's due to me being MIA but I think this BT ICS programming is the coolest thing ever. Sure it's $38 but it's cheaper than the official programmer by a chunk and you could integrate tuning and setup-logging into a big wunder-app. :cool:
