Re: TBS5

This is a video showing all that should be required to configure the TBS5 with a new receiver: https://youtu.be/BVDFxfC1tqg Once the TBS5 is in toggle switch mode, all that is needed is for the two track inputs and the control input to be connected to the receiver, then the programming button is pre...

Re: TBS5

Thanks Robert. That looks OK to me. 2 & 3 are the track inputs from the receiver, and the two black leads are the track outputs which go to the speed controller. 1 is the control input, which should control the starting of the engine and the playing of the individual sounds. I'm not sure what you sa...

Re: Help TBSmini v2 HELP

V2 is the latest hardware.

I think he means the V4 TBS Flash software, which allows for programming servo control et al.

Re: TBS5

Can you send a picture or diagram of how you have the TBS5 connected to the receiver and the electronics ? Can you check that the output on the receiver which goes to the control input on the TBS5 works as expected when you toggle the switch ? How many beeps do you get when you turn on the power ? W...

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

The quickest way to test these things is to plug an ordinary servo into each of the receiver outlets in turn and seeing which stick and switch operates each channel. If you roll the thumb wheel on the transmitter to the right, you will get a monitor screen, which shows what it thinks should be happe...

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

It's your wiring... Peck.jpg If you look at the picture above, with the part ringed in red, it shows that the servo plugs should be inserted into the receiver with the signal wires towards the centre of the receiver and the ground wires (-) towards the outside of the receiver. In that sort of Armort...

Re: Smoker Plumbing

I don't believe there it makes any difference in the material used, but the longer the pipe run, the more time the smoke has to cool and condense on the pipes, so less smoke will appear at the exhausts. It's also a good idea to try and route the pipe work so that any residue in the pipes can drain o...

Re: FAMO radio setup

Only the Sd.Kfz 7 and the FAMO half tracks have dual motors, the Sd.Kfz 251 and the US Half track have a single motor driving a differential, so no steering input. Apart from Elevon mixing, I've not played with the mixing capabilities of the Spektrum. As a first thought, I would have the left hand s...

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

I've no idea if these make a difference but is the frame rate set to 22ms and the Mode set to DSMX ?

The Frame Rate page is under the System Setup menu.

Re: FAMO radio setup

I've only driven the Armortek demonstrator FAMO but what you describe with the tracks is exactly how it behaves. You have to think differently to driving a tank, and drive with the throttle stick only for speed and steering all done with the front wheels. Once you get the hang of it, you can start t...
