KO Propo Japan has announced their newest EX-RR radio with KR-418FH receiver coming soon. The new system will include a variety of new features including an updated V2.1 software.
According to KO Propo the new software includes:
This function is useful at break-in which many EP car drivers do for diff-oil maintenance and after ball diff assembly.
You are able to fix the throttle to Low by setting a time limit before driving. This is a function to minimize the feeling change of the cornering characteristics due to the temperature change of the differential before a run.
Not only the operating time can be changed but also the throttle input can be adjusted to your preferred speed. In addition, the break-in function starts with an assigned ET/BT key and the buzzer of the EX-RR sounds during operation so you can see immediately that the break-in function is activated. Also, in case of an emergency we have also equipped the function to stop in case of an emergency by operating the key again.
Hand break function
In a real drift car, there is a method of pulling the hand brake while keeping the accelerator ON to make a better chance of a drift.
We added a hand brake function that will allow us to use this technique that is very similar. Like an actual vehicle, even if you operate the throttle trigger the set amount of brake will be applied only while operating the assigned ET/BT key as long as the throttle trigger is operated. In addition to drift cars, this can be used for regular RC cars to create an understeer feeling.
