It stays in the outbox until it has been read, whereupon it moves to sent.

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

> I was under the impression that with it being mode 2 both motors are operated by the right Stick. It may be that Armortek have enabled the tank driving mode on these controllers already, which would negate the need to change the transmitter set up. Can you try a servo in each of the receiver outpu...

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

The DX8 should work out of the box, with each stick operating one track. You only need to change things if you want to move to single stick control, but I would prove all the electrics first before you attempt that. I must admit I don't have a red box motion pack to play with, but there are a lot of...

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

I use Formfutura TitanX ABS exclusively now, as there's next to no warp and I only need to increase the plot size by 0.5% to account for shrinkage.

Re: FrSky Teranis plus with Benedini encoder

I believe Stephen White tried it and had problems. Not sure if he found a way around them.

I use a Taranis X-Lite Pro transmitter now but use the push buttons for sound control.

Re: RC Newbie

Thanks for the diagram :-)

Just for absolute clarity, where the diagram shows ELE and AIL, you need to use the THRO and PITCH connections on the receiver.

Re: RC Newbie

There are four outputs from the Motion Control Module. Switched 1 Switched 2 Speed Control 3 Speed Control 4 Speed Control 3 & 4 are for use with the tracks. These outputs are controlled by the RC Inputs 1 - 4, where the 1 to 4 corresponds to the four outputs. So to be able to control the main motor...

Re: Rattle can paint

They also make a NATO Green, which is what David used on the Bridgelayer and AVRE. Looks OK from a distance: DSCF2203a.jpg But possibly doesn't look green enough close up: DSCF2206a.jpg And that's without knowing the paint used on the full sized vehicle, or how long it is since it was last painted. ...

Re: RC Newbie

The manual doesn't mention anything about super whizzy technology, so I'm guessing it should be compatible with the Armortek modules. Which modules do you have ? I'm guessing it's either the large silver brick with a blue 60A fuse in the lid or the new red ones. Do you have a standard servo handy ? ...

Re: No sound from speaker - new audio option pack

I've always gone through the calibration process for every new installation, otherwise the system doesn't know the receiver signal values of the three switch positions.
