Recoil Module is not working

Post by Bernd Löffelbein » Mon Jul 29, 2019 4:55 pm

Hello All,

my Recoil Module is not working.

When is switch on the tank, the Servo is moving for a step and when I switch off the tank, the Servo is moving for a step again, that's all.

When i give a command to channel #6, I hear a relay switching and it gives power to the plug with the yellow and white wire, what is directed in the turret but has no description in the manual. I think this is for the blank-fire-unit ( I have not). I checked this with a lamp that is going on and off.

The LED-loom is all time off, nothing happens with it.

Also I hear no sound of gunfire or MG-gunfire. Drive sound of the motors is very well.

There are only 3 wires from the Recoil Module to connect, like Recoil-Module-Manual.
The left with the black plug, runs to the receiver.
The middle with a white plug, runs to the Amplifier-Module to E ( ex amplifier control cable)
The right with a white plug, (it has got only the green wire connected, blue and red are cut off), runs to the Amplifier-Module to F ( m/c gun flasher output)

Turret rotation and gun elevation with limit-switches is working.

Next Point:
What is the "Third switched channel connection" ?
I bought the complete Option-pack, but what is this, have i to buy something more ?


Thank you for your help in advance.
The difference between man and boy's, is the price of the toy's.
