Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

There isn't a system reset as such, but all settings are stored under the model, so deleting the model will clear everything.

If you make a new model, you will need to bind the receiver again.

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

That sounds right but you need to reverse the RAL channel, then it should behave as you expect.

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

That all sounds exactly as it should be. Can you put a servo on the receiver to check that the receiver outputs follow what you are seeing on the transmitter monitor ? I don't know if it's possible with the new motion pack but it sounds as though you have the motors split between the two outputs on ...

Re: My Sherman - a 14 year project

I'm going to have to get me one of those printers :-)

What do you use for CAD software ?

I use TurboCAD for 2D stuff and Fusion 360 for 3D but always seem to run out of talent just as things are coming together :roll:

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

Adrian, nothing seems to be moving on the screen when I move the stick around. Are you sure you're in the Monitor screen ? It's one roll right on the thumbwheel on the DX6, should be the same on the DX8. Monitor.jpg The channel names may well be different to the image above, which came from the DX8...

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

What does the monitor on the transmitter show you as you move the stick around ?

What do you have set under Aircraft Type in the System Setup menu ?

Re: My Sherman - a 14 year project

Good to see your Sherman making a reappearance :-) These resin printers certainly knock the socks off FDM printers. Am I right in thinking you have to empty the tank when you're not using it ? Is that a problem, as I understand it's like runny honey, so sounds like it could be a pain, especially if ...

Thanks. I must admit I'd forgotten that the 25pdr ring went up there was well.

Re: 2001 Tiger suspension help required.

I'm not aware of there ever being an official pack from Armortek. The official advice at the time was that the wobble was minimal if the wheels were built correctly, and it was a useful feature as it prevented stones from getting stuck between the wheels. Some of the builders at the time disagreed a...

Re: Fitting & Filing....

That ought to be a sticky in the Knowledge-base topic :-) I know when I started on my first model, I was surprised it didn't fit together as easily as I expected it to. Having met and spoken to Mark and Kian, it has been fascinating to find out why things are designed and made they way they are, and...

Looking good Dave :D

I'm intrigued by the long brass levers, I presume they are to lift something but what ?

Re: 2001 Tiger suspension help required.

There should be enough metal in the "fixed end" blocks to be able to convert it to use the same adjustable system as used now.

That way you can set the angle with the fixing bolts, rather than the flats on the torsion bars. Plus it can be adjusted when the bars have settled.
