I read about the KO PROPO EX-1 K.I.Y. ( Kustomize It Yourself ) in a magazine a couple of months back and kept forgetting to go online to check it out. Figured I would share this with you guys. I'm sure a few of you have seen it to.
It is very clean. I actually like the color scheme on it. Man it has a ton of goodies. I wouldnt mind checking this puppy out. This is a K.I.Y. meaning you can customize it to your liking. Has some really nice goodies. Its not cheap @ $579. But if it doesnt have a cheap feel or is very rough might be worth it.....
EX-1 KIY 2.4GHz FHSS set (Tx/Rx) includes KR-411FH receiver
KIY CONCEPT (Pat.P)
KO PROPO introduces Kustomize It Yourself (K.I.Y.) an interchangeable transmitter. The concept of the new K.I.Y. brings simplicity to customizing and upgrading within a modular system. The new transmitter is composed of 3 modular units: Steering, Throttle and Master units. The three separate modular units can be easily put together, no screws required. Just push the safety lock of the joint, pull the lever and pull or push to insert or remove the modular unit. It’ s that simple! You can use the K.I.Y. to unlock your next system and bring more enjoyment to your hobby.
The FHSS system which is used has a foldable and removable antenna for storage. The improved system increases the reliability and removes error for communication failures. The corresponding receiver used is the KR-411FH, which is the same receiver used by our other FHSS systems.
