Re: Return rollers

I did maintenance on my Chieftain drive system for several days. I operated for about 20 hours after assembly and learned many meaningful situations. The U-shaped erosion of the return roller was about 1mm deep and the remaining flesh was 2mm deep. This translates into correct values published by Ar...

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

I am working on a new task for my chieftain. :mrgreen: I am first trying to improve the recoil system and the elevator operation of the main gun. The reason why I try this is because I experienced a 25kg servo of internal gear broken in charge of the recoil during various tests on my completed chief...

Re: New Transmitters

I am trying to make a new analysis. To solve the problem that the flysky transceiver caused my Chieftain, I experimented with several cases of power supplied to the receiver according to Adrian's advice, but failed to resolve it. My tank loses its problem is Pivot on the ground. The pivot on a low-l...

Re: New Transmitters

Dear Adrian, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I understand exactly what you are saying. I will prepare a servo extension line tomorrow, cut the red of the extension line and test it by preventing module B from supplying power to the receiver at the same time when Module A supplies the current....

Re: New Transmitters

I noticed that the RC system with the Flysky FS-i6X and iA10B receiver bound had problems synchronizing with the optional packs on Armortek. When I connected motion pack A and motion pack B to the receiver at the same time, I could see that motion pack A has failed. Of course I'm talking about drivi...

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

Thanks Youngjae for the video. The new audio module is nice and loud. That's nice. What system is used for the recoil? A rotating cam and a servo or just one servo? I'm going to wash the track around the weekend and then put it in the house. Otherwise it's big trouble. :D :D Vince The recoil acts a...

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

I finished the test run after the final assembly just a moment ago. I'm going to continue testing until the end of this week, and if there's nothing wrong, I'm going to wash the track around the weekend and then put it in the house. :lol:

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

I have installed all the option packs and completed all the action tests by today.
The recoil was very difficult, but it's working very well now.
I am going to clean the workplace, clean the tank.

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

It looks like you now have the batteries under the mounting bracket for the turret turn motor. The motor is very long, so you may not be able to fit it without moving the batteries again :cry: Adrian. I stopped by the post office early this morning and picked up the turret motor myself. Today is a ...

Re: New Transmitters

The best way to test the failsafe is to jack the tank up so tracks are off the floor, select full forward on both tracks and hold in that position then switch the transmitter off and if you have set the failsafe correctly the both tracks should stop. Dennis. I tested like you said and confirmed tha...

Re: New Transmitters

You need to know whether the channel goes from: a: 0% to 100%, like an aircraft engine b: -100% to +100% or possibly -50% to +50%, like a rudder You should be able to see from the monitor screen whether a: or b: applies to a particular transmitter. For a:, assuming you have the sticks centred as th...

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

"As far as I can make out from my reference photos, all the louvers are angled toward the turret?"

Through your question, I have confirmed this fact correctly this time.
Thank you.

Re: New Transmitters

Youngjae, I would put failsafe on all channels if I was you. Nearly all radio gear has had failsafe on all channels for quite a few years now. It only used to be on channel 3 the throttle channel, which for tank users was a waste of time. The radio gear has to have 2 way communication in order to b...

Re: New Transmitters

The radio I use is flysky FS-i6X and iA10B, using 10 channels The characteristics of this radio that I have felt over the past few days have confirmed that the transmitter and receiver have two-way communication with respect to the signals at all times. As evidence of this, if I connect the motion c...

Re: New motion pack motor behaviour

If the plugs were misaligned or reversed, the motor channel wouldn't react to the transmitter at all, as the signals wouldn't be on the correct pins. Adrian. Yongjae has proved that the relatively cheap frsky system works pretty well with his new Chieftain red boxes, even if my under pants said dif...
