Re: 4QD

Sorry Phil - I've seen them and it's on the todo list. I've swapped the chip out but still no joy. Still bogged down with house clearance at the moment.

Re: 4QD

Armortek leads in the receiver the wrong way round ? Power or motor cables loose under the VTX black covers ? Ignition lead broken ? Inhibit Jumper fitted ? Try swapping the VTX40s over - it will only work when #1 is attached, so any problem there and neither will work. I've never done it but you sh...

Simple LED Light Switch

I wanted something to turn lights on and off on the UC and everything I found seemed to have far too many functions, so I have built one myself. 20210305_133055a.jpg It has two modes, selected at power on by the position of a three way switch. If the switch is off (Pos 1) at power on then it behaves...

Re: Receiver Location

I've been driving these things for a while with Futaba, Spektrum and now FrSky and never had a signal strength problem with the receiver buried inside the tank, even with large lumps like the BARV and the Centurion. Don't forget, you'll probably only ever be running it a few tens meters away, and ne...

Re: Universal Carrier Nr 34

I have a little something in the pipeline but Mum's passing and subsequent house sale has put the brakes on my modelling.

Re: Goliath Thread -- Who wants one?

IMHO the Goliath in 1/6 scale would be a tiny model with some difficulties to make it mobile and remote controllabe. The newsletter mentioned a 1:1 Goliath: "One of the requests we did get which did not sound unreasonable was for a 1:1 sized Goliath (Sd.Kfz. 302/303a/303b). This would not be much b...

Don’t the Elefant and Ferdinand have different exhaust layouts ?

Re: Elefant smoke unit

The only way to stop blow back would be to seal or put a cover over any openings in the rear of the tank.

Re: Elefant smoke unit

Do you mean the amount of smoke produced by the smoker, leaking from the piping, or blowing back into the tank ?

Re: Audio Module multiple Channel input?

The clever bit inside the audio module only has one control input, hence the reason for the wiring. However, there's no reason why you can't put an Arduino or Pi between the receiver and the Audio Module to make it do things with different switches, but it would only be able to do one thing at a tim...
