RR Armoured Car Steering Response

Post by Pete Nash » Wed Sep 12, 2018 6:55 pm

I fing that my Armoured car has a poor steering response, the steering motor is sloww to move the mechanism so I find it hard to steer a straight line or to turn and then go back to neutral.

has anyone else experienced this, if so what is their remedy?

Having driven the Armortek prototype Pete, that's the way it was and that's the way it is.

The speed of the steering on the Armoured car is intended to be at a realistic speed - so does not operate like one of the common RC cars. It is also not self centering. This does mean that it takes a bit of practice to drive the vehicle.

Thanks Dennis and Kian.

It is as I suspected, true to scale, just hope there was no harm in asking. Perhaps I'm too used to RC model Boats.
It looks as if i'll have to find a longer and wider footpath to practice on, sometimes called a 'road'. :D :) :?

Keep the faith chaps, Monday 17th is nearly here and we'll all find out what Kian mark and Chris have up their sleeves for us next year. :D

Buenas tardes.Así es ,el realismo que requiere este modelo es el que vemos una vez que terminamos la construcción.
Para los que somos constructores y nos gusta jugar por el campo recomiendo sustituir el motor de la dirección por un servo, tendremos una respuesta inmediata y una conducción precisa.
Hecho en falta más potencia , caja reductora potente y acorde al peso, para sortear ligeras cuestas, o no tan ligeras.
Un abrazo a todos

Maldito corrector.
Me refiero a subir desniveles, no preguntas.
Siento no hablar Inglés. Sorry
