Ooh, that's only a receiver right? I only have the kt 18 for ASF so I think I'll use my MT4 with the RX461 instead of getting that ASF board. If possible I may even use the turnigy trackstar ESC so I don't have to desolder the original board.

Nice, I like that bright orange.
I'm still waiting for my batteries to arrive, hopefully they will arrive in the coming week. It's unbearable when you have the car in your hands and you can't run it.. lol

Finally got the batteries. I seem to have got a dud, on the Rx at least, I only have 2 ft of range at most... Oh well I have my trackstar 18a and flysky Rx on hand so I'll do the swap and see how it goes.

Good morning,

My name is Meor Shazilli from Putrajaya, Malaysia. We have a group of AMZ enthusiasts in Kuala Lumpur. Below is a photo of our track located at Summit USJ, Kuala Lumpur. It is the biggest 1/27 scale track in Malaysia.

Hmm after some test fitting I have decided it's best to only desolder the Rx board and solder on a Futaba/JR plug to use the Flysky Rx . Using the 18A ESC would mean lots of shortening of wires and removal of the casing and heatsink, even then it will be a tight fit under the body.

From this youtube vid I think the terminals are -/+/signal if viewing from the front of the ESC. Just want to verify that before I begin.

MiniZ Channel - 226 - Cómo instalar receptor KO Propo ASF en un AMZ (11 min 16 sec)


In the mean time I've modified the Flysky Rx so I can plug in both Ch1 and 2 sideways to minimize height.


Edit: So... after reading a bit more about the terminals elsewhere. Figured out both the ESC terminals and which color the JR style signal lead is.. I went ahead with the swap.

here's the result:

Modified Atomic AMZ with Flysky Rx. (0 min 25 sec)


Still waiting for my micro molex to JR adapter and another micro servo to come in so I can test whether the stock servo was jerky because of the Rx or it is junk to begin with.
