OK thanks Pete. We just dismantled it from the museum today and it's now back at the Friberg house.

Re: Mick's Grant

Hi Mick,

This is a bridge I built quite a few years ago and we still use it at shows today although it looks a bit more battered now. It has been used on several occasions as a repair bench as many members on this forum will know.

Re: SW Model Show, Tank Museum, UK. 15/16 Feb

This is a 1/35th scale diorama of Operation Goodwood which took place in Caen in France in 1944. It was built by John Friberg in his attic over a period of many years. This is the first time it has been assembled completely and unfortunately John is not alive to see the fully assembled diorama as he...

Re: Batteries for the Chief

Probably off the subject but can anybody tell me if LIPO or LIFO batteries are re-cyclable because as I see it if they are not then with all the changes to electric vehicles etc what's going to happen to all the old batteries. As opposed to lead acid batteries which are re-cycable, just a thought. D...

Photos from Bovington.

I am not a Chieftain owner unfortunately and it's probably a bit late in the day but I took a few photos from Bovington last Saturday. Not sure if they will be of any use. If anybody wants any more details taken we are usually there twice a month. Dennis IMG_20200118_141627.jpg [attachment=6]IMG_202...

Re: New Transmitters

I would have used one transmitter to run both tanks because with the Spektrum you actually bind the receiver to the model so you can't accidentally run 2 tanks at once. I run about 6 different models from one transmitter and I sometimes leave the models in standby until I select one of them.

Re: New Transmitters

The best way to test the failsafe is to jack the tank up so tracks are off the floor, select full forward on both tracks and hold in that position then switch the transmitter off and if you have set the failsafe correctly the both tracks should stop.

Re: New Transmitters

Youngjae, I would put failsafe on all channels if I was you. Nearly all radio gear has had failsafe on all channels for quite a few years now. It only used to be on channel 3 the throttle channel, which for tank users was a waste of time. The radio gear has to have 2 way communication in order to bi...
