Re: Cheap Chinese brushless speed controllers

I don't have any hands-on experience with brushless motors and their speed controllers but have been reading about them. It seems that some controllers are not so good for low speed control. Also the controller might need programming.

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Looking really good Youngjae. How much air pressure do you think you will need?

Re: Barrel Stabilization

Received the MPU9250 motion tracker from Spain. Downloaded an Arduino sketch from the internet just to test it. DSCF3972.JPG The pitch and roll readings seem to make sense. The yaw reading is another story. Need to see exactly what's happening with the yaw by going in the code. Plan for now is to us...

Re: Barrel Stabilization

Yes Stephen I have seen your post and actually that is what made me think about it. One could say I'm a sucker for these type of challenges and whether it works or not I'm not bothered because it would have kept me occupied. All I need to get is the motion tracking sensor. Gerhard's friend model is ...

Re: Barrel Stabilization

Gerhard
there are ready-to-mount modules for turret & gun stabilizing using a simple DC-Gearmotor.
Do you have an internet link? I tried to do a search but was not successful.

Re: Barrel Stabilization

You're absolutely right about the diodes. Good thing I asked. So I guess it has to be some form of relay. I remember the experiment you did and the video. It was the same time I was experimenting with my Arduino recoil. As I said, this will just be to test ideas. I don't plan to make a fully working...

Barrel Stabilization

Now that I finished my Tiger 1 I find that I don't have a new project to start for now. Something that I have been thinking about these last few days is barrel stabilization (not for the Tiger 1). The more I think about it the more I am getting interested. At the moment it is all on the drawing boar...

Re: A Chequered Chieftain at #10

Actual M1.4 bolts cost a fortune in comparison and I've already spent enough
That's a good reason.

Re: A Chequered Chieftain at #10

Really love your step by step description of how you do things. Keep it up. Out of curiosity, how come you did not use 1.4mm hex head bolts?

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks Brian, Mark and Simon.

I know zilch about weathering so I thought it best to leave it as it is and maybe in the future try something. Knowing me, especially if I have started another project, nothing will happen.

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

In my case, using the three-axis gyro sold on the market, I am trying to control the two-axis control and gyro gain value with a transmitter, which has also completed ordering parts and is waiting. I hope that everything will be possible by adding one from the supply of Armortek. Nice. Will surely ...
