New KO Radio - KO Propo EX-1 K.I.Y.

http://www.redrc.net/2012/01/ko-prop...y-transmitter/


My questions are does it have USB/Computer capabilities and most important for here. Can it be set to run on ASF or FHSS per model since it has no module.

I just saw the release, very interesting to say the least. There certainly will continue to be programming capabilities. I wonder about Mini-Z support...

That radio looks sick. If it works with Mini-Z, this may be my next radio...

It will have PC connection, but what the software does has not been released yet. This is only for the current FHSS system and not for Mini-Z.

I don't know what the plans are for Mini-Z yet. Might be a separate main unit that you change out.

Thumbs up for the PC connection.

I hope the ASF can be dealt with with a firmware update, I know my Nomadio was able to take different 2.4 standards *until Horizon tried to sue them.

Shouldn't be any reason to have to use different hardware especially since KO would be for both for ASF and FHSS. Should be just reprogramming the radio chipset to broadcast/receive differently.

Do you know if the Moto MiniZ FHSS will work though?

Bleeeegh 4AAA. Unless KO has some clever tricks in the electronics department (I hope so!) this radio runs the risk of getting drowned out by the 11.1V and sometimes even 14.4V radios at the track!

The voltage is irrelevant, any/all 2.4ghz radios run the transmitters at 3 or 3.3 volts no matter the input voltage.

Anyway, I'll stick with Futaba...

While I've been told this as well, the last KT-18 I've owned had a significantly stronger signal with a 7.2V Li-ion replacing the stock 4.8V setup. My Eurus gets drowned out much less now after I replaced the 9.6V pack with an 11.1V LiPo. I can't explain that, so I'm going on my empirical data.

I'm I the only one that finds this thing hideously ugly? Maybe seeing one with black grips will change my mind. On second thought, no it won't.

Looks like some Star Wars she-ite....Its uglyness make it even more attractive....if that's possible. Im also concerned about the compatability with other scales, since there is no removable modules. I run spektrum stuff in my larger scales, and was wondering if that will all become junk if I was to convert.
