Re: UK tank club?

The web site is broken and being paid for by someone who does not appear to be contactable. Obviously, the hosting co won't give access without their consent. I did volunteer to try and repair and revitalise it, but without access it's dead in the water. Shame, as there's a lot of good information ...

Re: Tiger II Kit For Sale

I’m interested but 6k US works out to more than Armortek was selling the 2019 for in Canadian. I’d rather buy straight from them. I’m just waiting for armortek to release a nice heavy with metal tracks and I’m sold. Let me know if you become flexible on price. All the best, Matt When considering va...

Re: Lucky to get an Sdkfz-222 - Looking for Advice

Hi Adrian Checked the Q4D and it is wired with the ouput 1 and input 1. Tried bypassing the VTX speed controller and the motor operates. Has there been any cases where the VTX has failed and needed to be replaced? If so, would be be possible to purchase a replacement? Leonard Leonard - one thing I ...

Re: DX8 advice for new to RC

It's a shame Andy - in normal times I am in Chorley a lot and could have given you a hand, but I doubt the rozzers would allow helping to set up a toy tank as an allowable excuse! It's much easier to sort this type of problem when you have all the gear in front of you. Hope you get it sorted, it can...

Re: Paint stripper

I found the easiest and most effective paint stripper for tank parts is cellulose paint thinners. About £12 for 5 litres. Buy a metal bucket to put larger parts in. Can be used several times before losing it's effectiveness. Works virtually instantaneously, but don't use in the house, due to the sme...

Re: Transmitter Systems

My 18sz worked perfectly with all the different Armortek modules. The previous owner did have all the latest software upgrades done though, which may have made a difference.

Re: Tiger build

Fantastic build there Mark - beautiful bit of engineering. One question - is there any particular reason you are using a separate battery for the radio equipment, rather than a simple battery elimination device?

Re: Panther 112

Brian I am not a huge fan of winter schemes, but these are interesting.
