Re: Chieftain kit arrival

It's 3-axis flight stabilizer controller for RC airplanes. I came across it when I was researching which gyro to use for my experiments. Have you used it before?

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Still following your professional work Youngjae. Quite impressed.

What is that small black box that has Yaw, Roll and Pitch written on it? Is that going to be your electronic gyro? I have an impression that I have seen it before but just can't remember where.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

That's a great looking Tiger Phil. One does not see a lot with the winter camo. I'm sure the other Phil will be pleased with it.

Can't wait to see what gyro and control system you will be using.

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Yesterday I realised that I haven't done a video of my finished Tiger 1.

Don't have where to run it so it's all in the workshop. Enjoy.

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Youngjae, are you going to use one motor for normal turret turn and the other two motors for turret stabilization?

Re: Tiger build

Re: Barrel Stabilization

Sorry for the delay but I ended up taking the video by myself with an old camera (hence no sound) on a tripod. https://youtu.be/o0Cb07O7WVg The initial barrel twitch is normal telling me that the pitch angle has stabilized. As I said in my previous post I am using a slow motor so the barrel goes up ...

Re: Barrel Stabilization

A quick update : I must be mad !!!!! I used my Tiger 1 turret as a test bed !!!!!! Temporarily fixed the sensor in the turret and crossed fingers. Tilt the turret forward and barrel goes up. Tilt the turret backward and barrel goes down. So, in principle, it works. Only drawback is that it's slow. I...

Re: Visual makeover for 'Gunther'

Gunther is looking good Marco.

I did not know that Armorpax had 1/6 scale stencils. Thanks for the info.

Did you use RC047 for the green colour and RC068 for the brown?
