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 ?

Couldn't find anything on the forum...

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

Thread necromancy

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.
