Re: Mick's Grant

Morn'in all, finished the rewire...as before the batteries exit through the rear engine doors. Each battery can be isolated and charged individually.... Mick

Re: New motion pack motor behaviour

Hello Oil, you need to 'bind' your Tx to the Rx. Mick

Re: New motion pack motor behaviour

Hello Oli, the first issue I notice is that the transmitter does not appear to be 'bound' to the receiver. My receiver light is solid, not flashing like yours.
Have you used the bind button..? ..Mick

Re: New motion pack motor behaviour

Hello Oli, I have the new modules. The first part of the 'bench test' is easy to setup and should work out of the box. Check that your transmitter/receiver is configured correctly. If you look at my M3 Grant build there is a post explaining how your Tx/Rx should be configured. On the Tx, I have my m...

Re: Mick's Grant

Good morning, ran the options this morning....every option working as expected. The Grant is a very pleasant build, a small sized model, easy to manoeuvre on the work bench, ideal for the smallest bedroom. Wheels to fit, tracks and paint....what more could a man ask.... :) Mick

Re: Mick's Grant

Hello Adrian, ok, checked the Monitor screen....and yes both RAL and LAL move together, so the transmitter right hand stick is moving both controls. Not sure how to disable this mixing issue, I have looked at the Mixing screen which shows INH on all positions. I have a spare channel available on the...

Re: Mick's Grant

Good morning everyone, I spent this morning locating the upper hull and turret. There is always a glitch is there not.... I have to say all is well apart from this small issue. I have the drive motors on my transmitter sticks, left and right, forward/reverse. When I move the right hand transmitter s...

Re: Mick's Grant

Good afternoon, thank you for your replies Kian, Dennis and Adrian. I have ordered a Spektrum eight channel receiver. It is a genuine Spektrum from my usual model supplier. Early in the M3 build I decided to change the 'recoil' from the sponson to the turret. I was not keen on the 'Special' so I pur...

Re: Mick's Grant

Hello Dennis, thanks for your reply. I had already tried binding the second receiver. It did not work as expected...but I thought it was just me, so I asked the question. I will go for the other option and purchase an 8 channel receiver...don't spoil the ship for a halfpenny worth of tar. I like the...

Re: Mick's Grant

Good morning Kian, thank you for your reply and advice. All understood, as I have a spare Spektrum receiver I will bind that to my DX8 transmitter and use a switching channel for the lights. Ok on the turret setup, again I can follow the thinking behind the turret holes and locating bolts. I have to...

Re: Mick's Grant

Good morning everyone, subject for today.....locating the turret. I noticed while fitting the turret, that the four location holes in the turret base are drilled and 'tapped' to M5. The four locating bolts used in the bearing ring are M4x30 with a M4 half nut. Is there a need for the turret locating...

Re: Mick's Grant

Good morning everyone, and thank you Vince. Advice required. I have installed the option units, loads of room in the Grant hull. I have a Spektrum DX8 bound with a six channel AR610 Spektrum receiver. The options are working fine so I do not want to disturb the layout. I purchased a receiver control...
