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...
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...
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...
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.
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.
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...

Mick, your best option is to get an eight channel receiver off ebay, not that expensive but don't buy from the uk too expensive. Or you can get get a channel splitter which converts one channel in to six but it is not easy to operate. You cannot use an additional receiver because with Spektrum both ...

I second every thing that Stephen has said. I bought my first Armortek kit (Panzer 111) back in 2008 and have met Gill on many occasions since then, always with a big hug. I have many happy memories of Gill, she will be sorely missed. The thoughts of myself, Chris my wife and all of the Members of t...
