Re: Universal Carrier No32

My motion pack arrived a day early "DING DONG!" Checked it out, Looks nice, very compact easy to setup. Looking at the builds so far, I've been most surprised by how much space there seems to be. The supplied Electronic Speed controller (ESC) is very similar to some spares I keep on stock for other ...

Re: Universal Carrier Nr 34

From what I have heard, as long as it says 7.4 volts on the new battery and it's connected correctly all will be ok :lol: Most Speed controllers these days have a BEC (Battery elimination circuit) built in to the circuit, which removes the need for a separate battery to supply the radio control rece...

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Hi Charles adding teeny tiny letters, frustrating to even just see them, certainly adds the detail. But it's a wabbit hole that never ends. It's not good if you have Dyslexia and your spellin not much cop like me :lol: ps Fat fingers don't help either. It is possible to get hold of sub 2mm letters p...

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Hi Charles
I think 2mm lettering should work nicely on the commanders hatch 8) , but you may need to be a bit creative for the smaller MRS box.
(once you've constructed it of course :lol:)

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Try this Charles, But I still don't know what the rail is for, it appears on all Mks too. Other random blocks welded on the turret could be for war gaming simulation equipment. Or a cunning plan, more trip hazards for would be enemy trying gain access to the turret equipment and hatches. :lol: DJI_0...

Re: Universal Carrier Nr 34

Super news, looking forward to seeing a first look. It's surprising that Armortek have sent options packs out before showing them off, say on the monthly news letter. (or did I miss something?) Lower voltage from the norm option packs certainly opens the doors to lighter smaller vehicles in the futu...

Re: Mick's StuG 111

Certainly does look good Mick, I bench tested the Chieftain sound electronics last summer. Seems such a long time ago.
Bringing the tanks to life is one of the wonderful hi lights and the smoker, (sorry gretta :( ) the icing on the cake.

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Hi Charles
The bolt heads seem a little recessed probably to reduce damage on hex edges if sprayed with small arms or shrapnel, allowing easier removel if that occurs. Good for us as the recess will allow for a little more detail.

Re: Chieftain No. 34

Many thanks Richard, I feel a lot more confident knowing that the width of the Clansman ATU box is smiggine over the length of the Armorpax extinguisher bottle mount. The front plate recessed about 1mm with 10x bolt heads with a guesstimate across the flats of about 2mm.

Re: M3 Help Needed!!

Hi Matthew Except for the control It all looks good to me. Try reading this. It is not Armortek Electronic Speed Controller but I believe similar. http://www.4qdtec.com/pwm-01.html It could be that you may have a poor power supply connection. Under "Main capacitors" which caught my eye. Control of t...
