Spectrum DX6 and new King Tiger

Hey, need help, we’re at the US tank meet, have a new production King Tiger with new version of electronics, after running a few minutes it slows down, wait a few and its back up to speed, batteries are new and charged, any thoughts on what could be going on, thanks.

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

Got it running? if you dont use the stock Armortek electronic you should look at the Syren 25A 24volt controller, I have used x2 of these in different models and I have a friend that also uses them, to me they are simple to use and in the US only cost about 75 bucks plus another 25 for a BEC unit.

Re: Primers and painting

I paint every part inside and out just because I hate corrosion no other reason just what I prefer, on the 2nd part, your choice of paint, I find it more time consuming but man is it durable and worth the extra effort!

Re: Dave B's Quad

I have never built a Quad but Im building another model and had the same issue with the doors/hatches, when you shim it keep in mind that paint on the body and hinge will add to this issue, my hinges were good, then I painted and they no longer worked till it rubbed the paint away, on the remaining ...

Re: assembling lower hull on 2019 king tiger

I have placed my order for a Stug 3, this is the first tank for me from Armortek, so I cant offer first hand advice but once I did build a wood jig and used a jack to straighten out the barrel of an RWS 24 air rifle which shoots straight on now, if the Stug comes with warped pieces I believe I will ...

Re: Transmitter advice needed please

I have only just started this tank hobby so my experience is limited but I have been playing with R/C cars, planes, boats and subs, since the 1980s, I run failsafes on all my gasoline cars because loss of signal means a 30lb car running 30 to 40 MPH out of control, I have never had any electric anyt...

Re: Florians FAMO build

I have used LiFe batteries for years in R/C helicopters and cars, a lot lighter than traditional batteries and can be fast charged at 3 times their rate, don't see why a lot more people don't use them, Oh by the way, nice build!

Re: Armorteks next model

Will we get any hints of how the survey is going, maybe the top 3 or 4 contenders in no specific order?

Re: Armorteks next model

Is it too early to ask for the next-next model ? how about a M24 Chafee ? Light tank, used in ww2 and later, not too big to fit in the back of a car, sounds perfect.

Does size matter?

What a monster has been released now, its super cool and huge, will need a trailer to haul that beast around, so the last three tanks released are big ones and there all way cool but does anyone want a smaller tank? Possible the next one will be something like the M3 Stuart or one along that size.
