Re: Suspension arm angle

Thanks both - is frustrating to be instructed to set at 20 degrees when it seems this will be insufficient..

Suspension arm angle

Hi I have just got my Panzer III on it’s wheel for the first time with just two drive motors installed and no upper hull at all. I notice that the front two arms are almost horizontal with just this weight, while the rest of the arms sitting closer to 10 degrees. Question for all Panzer III owners w...

Re: No sound from speaker - new audio option pack

Hi Adrian Unfortunately the calibration process also requires the use of the three position switch. I only hear the beeps during this process as well. I have seen other threads about sound modules, but since the module is receiving a servo signal correctly for the switch and the speakers do actually...

No sound from speaker - new audio option pack

Hello all. I have the 2018 Panzer III with motion and audio packs. Drive motion is now working as expected, motors set up as a single stick operation. I have wired the audio module as per instructions, using the y-leads to feed motors and audio module from channels 1 & 2. The 3 position switch wire ...

Re: Transmitter advice needed please

Thanks for the reassurance Peter, I would rather not have to spend another £300+, if possible!

Re: New motion pack motor behaviour

Two wires are for smoke control. Also the issue is always on the right side motor outputs, on side without those thin wires involved.

Re: New motion pack motor behaviour

Hi Oli I was told that you have to be very meticulous with the R/C equipment connections, I haven't got the new systems yet, but Stuart Falkner told me that it is easy to reverse plugs by accident or miss alignment of the plugs that could miss fit the plug on the connection pins. Either of these fa...

Re: New motion pack motor behaviour

Fair point re binding, however I think that is a red herring.

New video here, different tx/rx but exactly the same issue.

Re: New motion pack motor behaviour

Not sure tbh, I assumed it was working fine since is interacting with receiver and servos correctly. I may not even have bind plug anymore since is quite and old bit of kit.

Same issue is seen with two other setups, a T7C Futaba with FASST rx and a 2 ch car transmitter with associated receiver.

Re: New motion pack motor behaviour

Thanks Mick I read through your thread with interest and saw you had similar issue with drive but I feel like my issue is even before any one or two stick setup... OK, in a bid to isolate this issue from mixing, tx/rx etc I have made a video demonstrating. I am just using the throttle channel and sw...

Re: New motion pack motor behaviour

Thanks for the replies, there is no mixing on, all three to/Rex combinations drive a servo correctly, yet when cable to motion control is swapped into the same channel as the servo was previously previously in, I get the same 0-1 behaviour where servo was -1 to 1 seconds before.
