Re: Chieftain turret turn motor strange behaviour on initial switch on

I'm using that combination in a King Tiger here at the moment but with the large Motion Control Module and not the Red Box system and no problems so far. I was working on a customer tank yesterday which uses a DX6G3 and AR6600T receiver, again with the large MCM. Every so often, at power up, the sat...

Re: Rifling simulation and scopes

Various people have made resin optics for cupolas etc, but I believe it was only Mike Stannard (FOA) who made optically reflective prisms in this scale.

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Still working on the upgraded smoker control.

I had it working with a normal smoker fan :) then a turret turn motor :D then thought I'd try a Tiger drive motor. Fzzzt :cry:

Have ordered some new boards with dual high power MOSFETs, so will go again when they arrive.

Re: Chieftain turret turn motor strange behaviour on initial switch on

> Are you saying that if I do this then it will stop doing it permanently? No, unfortunately. There has been a known issue with some Spektrum receivers and these speed controllers, due to them outputting pulses before they've actually connected to the transmitter. I don't know for sure if this recei...

Re: Chieftain turret turn motor strange behaviour on initial switch on

Which transmitter/receiver are you using ? A quick test, and you'll need some space, or do it with the turret removed and just watch the motor ;-) Turn the transmitter on and wait for it to fully boot. Turn the tank on. If it starts doing this, move the transmitter stick fully to the left and then t...

Re: Jagdtiger production validation build

Good to see the JT coming along.

I would recommend using letters for quantities and numbers for sizes, so "two M6 x 25 CAP" rather than "2 x M6 x 25 CAP".
I also wouldn't bother with punctuation, unless it changes the meaning of the text, in which case it ought to be rewritten ;-)

Re: Chieftain Rifling Plug

While I was printing the test rifling plug, I thought I'd do a test on the final drive quill shaft adjuster: 20200626_231954.jpg This was eyeballed from some of the pictures posted here so not sure it's the correct size. I went with 19mm diameter as that looked about right on the cover. If anyone kn...

Re: Chieftain Rifling Plug

Yes, it's an Anycubic Photon S, with Elegoo "ABS-like" resin.

I'm only using the Elegoo resin as the grey Anycubic resin seems to be impossible to get at the moment.

I have to say I'm pretty happy with the output. Apologies for the photos, it's so long since I've used my camera that the battery seems to have died :-( 20200626_213920.jpg Plug once released from the supports and backing plate 20200626_214005.jpg Plug fitted to the barrel I'm going to set the cost ...
