Re: Spektrum DX8G2

Thank you Adrian! That fixed it. Now the rx’s are bound to the tx’s, but nothing happens in response to stick movement. I’ve plugged right track to elevator, and left track to throttle but there’s no response at all. Your help is much appreciated!

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

Hi Adrian,

Yes, frame rate and mode are set to 22ms, DSMX. I bought two, and both do the same thing, on two separate Armortek modules. I’m plugged into: Battery, Throttle and Elevator. With two identical units, it must be something I’m doing/not doing, but I don’t see it.

Any ideas?

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

Adrian, Stephen. Thanks for the replies. I’ve tried all angles, I wonder if I’ve somehow plugged it wrong? Stephen, when you had this issue, was there anything you did, you thought may have helped the two to bind?

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

Good question Adrian - both! Didn’t come with a bind plug, so I made one. The paper manual is very generic and doesnt strictly cover the exact model of equipment.

Spektrum DX8G2

Dear All, I’ve a new transmitter (tx) and receiver (rx) all plugged in as per instructions (I think!) but I can’t get the tx and rx to bind. I’ve increased the distance between the two to say 2m, I’ve set the receiver flat on the table etc, but I always get ‘bind failed’. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Re: Armorteks next model

Wouldn’t a 1:1 Land Rover project be a similar price to a 1:6?

Re: internal details turret Tiger1

Hi Ivano,

I’d be interested in two gyro compasses.

Regards,

I like it. One of the best executed schemes I’ve seen.

Re: Turret Rotation Speed?

Thanks Mark, at least someone read the question! Yes, I’m aware 131’s turret rotates around about 1 minute for a full 360, though I’m not sure 131 is a good example due the damage it received? The Tiger I was famous for a slow rotation rate however, and I am looking into slowing mine down. Watching ...

Re: Turret Rotation Speed?

Thanks Mark. I’m after the speed at which Armortek’s Tiger I turret rotates.

Turret Rotation Speed?

Can someone do me a favour, time the turret rotation (360 degs) on the Tiger I with the more recent lazy suzanne ball bearing system? Much appreciated, thanks!!
