Re: Two new UC builds

Tim

The motion pack for the UC is an ESC, similar to what would be used in a large r/c car. The motor is an RS550 with Armortek’s gearbox attached. It all fits very easily under the engine cover.

Re: Universal Carrer Update Sets

Thanks Dave

I thought I would have to remove the front plate. Never mind. Looking at the set it will be worth the effort.

I’m happy to source brass and aluminium myself. An order will winging its way to you shortly.

Many Thanks.

Re: Universal Carrer Update Sets

Dave

Awesome work as usual. A couple of questions if I may.

Does the wireless set 19 come with decals/labels?

Will I have to remove the upper front assembly to fit the driving compartment floor?

Thanks in anticipation.

Re: New Knowledge Base Topic on Batteries. Long overdue.

Stephen

Excellent article. I know absolutely nothing about lipo batteries, so I’m spending a quite night at work swatting up and checking out supplies.
Do you know what type of battery connector the UC motion pack uses❓

Thanks in anticipation.

Mick.

Pardon my ignorance Dave, but what is a Chore Horse❓ It conjures up many visions, but none to do with a Universal Carrier😂

Re: Video of the Universal Carrier running

Is the steering using the track warping only? Seems pretty sharp👍

Re: Something with 406mm main armament

How much is that going to weigh in at? Or should I ask what will be it’s displacement, assuming it’s intended to float. Fantastic project, and I thought I had trouble finding room to assemble my Universal Carrier.

Happy New Year

Re: Chieftain turret turn motor strange behaviour on initial switch on

Hi Mark On the assumption your are using a modern radio setup, like the Spektrum, try going through the binding process again. First ensure all your controls are neutral, any trim, sub-trim or offsets are zeroed. When you bind to the receiver, the settings on your transmitter are you failsafe settin...

Re: Original Tiger Electronics

Hi Wael The electronize fr30hx is marginal on power for a 2003 Tiger. I also the power application not very smooth, making steering difficult. I have run on 4QD’s for about 10 years, and find them smooth and more than sufficient in power. Looking at the price difference between the DN-5 and DN-10, I...

Re: Original Tiger Electronics

Wael My advice would be to replace the Electronize controllers, they are not capable of controlling your tank. The 2003 Tiger is very heavy, no weight saving was carried out. Armortek quickly moved on to 4QD controllers, and then in house motion packs. Do not replace your radio, replace your control...

Re: electric problem with steering unit / servo

Hi Florian I don’t know what the rating of your steering servo is, put I’m assuming it’s high torque. You could be at the limit of your 5a converter, which will cause the voltage to drop, and cause the symptoms you are reporting. If you have a voltmeter, you could monitor the converter output with e...

Re: How many track links does your Tiger Have?

Hi Chris I have a Tiger running on 2010 tracks, so I guess they are the same. I have 94 links on the right and 95 on the left. It’s not unusual to have different number each side. The 92 links you are running sounds too short, so I’m amazed they still appear slack! They always stretch from new, but ...
