Yes, i've did all that and still having problem...OMG have to send it back to Japan then . is this a rare case or happen to other ppl before?

This is why you should purchase from your local shops (distributor) in case there is a problem.

It is rare, but can happen as nothing is perfect.

BTW, just ship it back to Japan for a fix. Supposedly you just need to pay the shipping fees.

good to hear that. By the way, the problem seems not to be uncommon. In the track here, 3 out of 8 EX-1s have the same issue. It turns out that it's the grip handle that causes it and the Master Unit is fine, as at least in our 3 cases. And we notice that the packing of the grip unit is bad with inadequate protection, which might be the reason for broken grip unit during shipping.

Anyway, we have explained this to the local reseller in Hong Kong and ask them to reflect the situation to KO.

I have a question about the throttle high point, for the standard 1/10 radio using mini z module, the throttle high point is set at 60%( according to KO web site) then what is the throttle high point for KIY EX1 ASF for Mini Z, does the default setting take into account that it is for Mini Z (since it is specially made for mini z only) and using the default setting (which is 100) will use the full range of ESC on the Mini Z board ?

The manual says: Use batteries which have adequate remaining capacity. Weak
batteries mean lower transmitting power and may result in
malfunctions.


Does it support unregulated 7,4 lipo?
Does it have the same output power as the Euros?

Not easy to write the correct name...

But what you say are that the EX10 Eurus has lower transmitting power than the new EX1.
Can Ko Propo confirm this?

You can use a 2S Lipo for the EX-1 KIY, just make sure you set it to the correct battery mode being used so that you get the correct low voltage warning.

The output is the same as the Eurus due to FCC and international frequency broadcasting regulations.

In the monitor view, u can actually see what each channel are doing and in my case...the TH bar flickers left and right without me holding the TH trigger.

I've tried factory reset, adjust TH, adjust trim...i works only for a while and the problem will happen again. I tried swap with my friend's Hand unit and it works flawlessly.

Hope someone can shed some light on this, thanks!
