Panther A barrel elevation

Post by yves mouton » Fri Aug 09, 2019 10:21 am

Hello,

The elevation of the barrel down works ok,
but the barrel elevation up does not work without a little help.

So my question is: do i have to make a counter weight the help the motor
put the barrel up?

Best regards Yves

I've seen this in the past when the current limiting resistor in the elevation motor supply is too sensitive.

Counter-weighting the barrel should reduce the load on the motor and allow it to operate correctly.
