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...

Re: In memory of Gill Watkins

Dear Lord, what sad news, one of the sweetest most helpful of people I have ever known. I only ever spoke to Gill on the telephone, nothing was ever to much trouble, no challenge went unanswered, no request refused. I always hoped one day to meet Gill, maybe one day...I will. God rest Gill Watkins.

Re: Mick's Grant

Good evening men, following my Option Pack problems I returned my Audio Module to Armortek..... The Module arrived back today, so with some trepidation I reconnected the 'Option Packs' for testing. If you all cast your minds back, my 75mm and 37mm guns were somewhat laid back....no thump. My M/G LED...

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Hello Phil, I am wiring the M3 Grant head lights. I have sent for a Turnigy Rc on off switch. I will be interested to see how you wire your lights. I'm enjoying your attention to detail, makes my head spin. I do follow the builds, some excellent modelling going on....Mick

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....
