It depends on the programming on the Benedini TBS sound board. I've noticed on at least one sound card that the MG sound used is a long burst of MG fire, rather than a single shot repeated. This means the MG LED only flashes once at the beginning of the burst, not once with each shot.

It can be changed by reprogramming the TBS board, which I have done for some customers, but opening the Audio Module invalidates the warranty.

Hello,

I test today again the MG light in out put nr 4,5,6 the sounds work ( all different MG ) but no light flash?
if i put the led in output nr 1 or 2 the light stays on, so that can be used for the notek lights.

Normaly if the sound works of the MG the light have also work?

I dont know whats wrong that the light dont flash in the audio output nr 4 (red module of the stug )
Is it because my panther has the older modules ( alu look )

It sounds to me like the new audio module has not been configured properly.

I have just setup a TBS mini to work with my P3 and had some problems getting the MG to flash correctly.
There are a couple of setting that need to be configured or it just wont work.

Unfortunately, as Adrian says, opening the box invalidates your warranty so i would contact Armortek directly.

Cheers

if you go to Thomas Benedini's website,
you can download the program for free,
you must first send an email to Thomas who will send you User and password,
the program is quite intuitive,
it allows you to program the flash of the Mg, that of the Gun and the recoil through a servo,
and also the various lights,
but be careful that it has the outputs at the voltage of the receiver (bec from the esc 5 o 6 Volt)

Marco

You also need to purchase the USB programming lead and there is also the matter of voiding your Armortek warranty.
