Re: Mick's Grant

Derek you have lots of modeling on the go. The space available inside the M3 looks fine until you come to fit the options. The red box units are smaller and I like the look. I almost went for the Special Options, then changed my mind. It looks like I will need to install using some sort of shelf. Th...

Re: Mick's Grant

Good morning all, moving on while the Audio Module is fixed. I am pleased to have the 'Bench Test' pretty much resolved, Thanks again to the Forum ,so I have installed the drive motors. I was aware of the problems with access for the motors, because of the 'hull web' being in the way. So, early on I...

Re: Mick's Grant

Hello Stu, I am impressed, that is some tight fit for all your options, a very nice build, looking forward to the paint job. Well done mate. I have the Recoil Pack not the Special. The M/G LEDs should flash, mine do not even light up. Adrian ( he who has all knowledge) said it's to do with the progr...

Re: Mick's Grant

Hello Kian, I now have the main motors/turret turn/servos/recoil/flash working ok. The only issues are, the main guns can hardly be heard above the engine noise. I have set the volume on my Transmitter with the sound card, as high as it will go. The M/G LEDs are not in sync with the M/G sounds. Ever...

Re: Mick's Grant

Hello Kian/Armortek, thank you for your reply. I have a PM from Adrian. I am working with his advice. I have managed to resolve the main motor issue. The Motion Control B is suppling power to the Rx, which already has power, I removed the positive pin from the Rx lead, there is no longer a conflict....

Re: Mick's Grant

Thank you Vince, I agree with your comments and thank you Phil for your support. The motion control modules A and B do appear to control specific sides of the system. The modules and attached instructions are very clear, They 'handhold' and guide you through every stage of the bench setup. The best ...

Re: Mick's Grant

Good morning chaps, continue to add detail. I need to resolve the Options problems before moving on. The motors have to be installed next. Back to the 'Bench Setup'....I have posted a photograph showing the Motor Control B, there are two outputs which do not appear to match. One power lead is missin...

Re: Mick's Grant

Finally called it a day with my Bench Setup. The all new electronic units, a instruction guide easy to understand and follow. I browsed the Knowledge Base and tracked a number of articles which appear to reflect my issues. So near and yet so far. Maybe the weekend will make some sense of it all. Jus...

Re: Mick's Grant

Hello John and thank you for your reply. It is most perplexing. I can have either the main motors running as they both should, with sounds etc,. or conversely, enable all the other options, recoil, slew, elevation, turret rotate working, with sounds, but not both. The bow M/G sounds are there, but n...

Re: Mick's Grant

Re: Mick's Grant

Re: Mick's Grant

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, update with my radio control 'bench setup' for the M3 Grant. I have the new 'Recoil Pack, not the new Special Grant Pack. Kian kindly checked the Tx, Rx and Motion Control A. This is my progress; I am using my Spektrum DX6 and a 6 channel Spektrum AR620 Sport rec...
