TAO II Please read it before use

This product is an effecter for exclusive use of TACHYON AIRIA.
Before use, you have to update firmware of TACHYON AIRIA to a TAO II -adaptive version.
Please update in referring to update software.

* TACHYON AIRIA where firmware for exclusive use of TAOII was installed cannot perform setting changes in 1st Gen TAO.
Please change a setting mode of TACHYON AIRIA to a program card mode when using TAOII. (TACHYON AIRIA instruction manual P.10)

Regardless of wired communication or wireless communication, because the use with the ESC mode is not possible, please be careful.

Not only at the time of a setting change in TAOII, please always use it as a program card mode during a run.

TAOII is a totally new development type effector that unifies the whole vehicle.

Generally, a program card for E.S.C. is external equipment to more easily operate various set points programmed beforehand by the E.S.C. In contrast, many users give a high evaluation to TAO as a setting device to be able to write a new program.

TAOII enabled more detailed and free setting depending on a category and a course layout. It leads to the setting of the Boost/Turbo not to mention each frequency and Drive/Brakes. These are based on data from user of 1st gen.TAO

Driver can easily confirm these set points at hand, and the transmission, the setting change in AIRIA is possible by wireless, too.

In addition, It became able to display the change of various data on the running vehicle. (E.S.C./ motor temperature and battery voltage etc.)

Furthermore, you can control the various devices that planned release via a brain unit in future.

TAOII is a totally new development type effector that unifies the whole vehicle.

8.Data logger function

Various temperature, Battery voltages, Motor RPM, Throttle work etc.

9.Graph data information

In addition to current data, a graph displays data before the last time with 1 screen at three kinds, the same time.
(Technology only for Acuvance)
Because It can easily compare the change of the running condition by this function, you can confirm various hints for an operation level or improvement of the time at hand.

10. Micro SD Card

11.Expansion device terminal

You can do setting each function and the logging data of the multi vehicles which carried AIRIA only in one TAOII if you use the brain unit.

As for the connection of AIRIA and Brain Unit, the connection is possible in separate with an attached L-shaped connector cable other than a docking system. You can put them on various places.

Furthermore, you can control the various expansion devices that will be released through a brain unit in future via TAOII.

※For wireless communication between XARVIS and TAO II, an Air Link Adapter (Airlink Adapter / OP-15065) is required separately.

*A temperature sensor unit sold separately is necessary for the motor temperature detection.
