I like it. One of the best executed schemes I’ve seen.

I have to get used to it, weathering will really make it shine. But what I really like is how well you replicated it, skills!

Oh my god Florian, I had the shock of my life when I seen this, it looked like Chinese graffiti !!!, HOWEVER - I think if you blend it in a bit it could be a really good look, sorry don't mean to offend but its better to be honest :D

Good'y Florian,

Far behind your building progress, I read this thread almost everyday for good ideas. Today I just need to ask for your opinion.
On your 28 Jan 2019 photo, the linear actuator (CP0314) for steering shown a longer white rod (see the red arrows) :
FAMO-167.jpg

When I try do the same thing, found the white area shown on my linear actuator is very short. So short that it can't link with the steering arm.

Did I do it wrongly, or missing something? I have tried to pull the white rod outward, but just failed.

Do I need to do so by bench testing, ie, by connecting the battery, and connect R/C Tx, Rx, and the Motion Module? If no, what else should I do?

With regards,
Lerh Chang

The actuator in your picture is completely retracted - this would be its position when the wheels are turning right. If you connect it to power it should centre (extend to its mid point).

Do not force the white rod by hand - this will damage the actuator.

Danke für dein Lob Heiko. Das von dir, ehrt mich.

Kian is on the right way. Don`t try to pull or turn on the liear servo.
You have to connect the servo wiht the steering from the axle. Maybe the Wheel is not strait in front. - If this, you have to adjust it on your controler.

Definitiv :D Wenn du nach Overlooon kommst kannst du sie ja mitbringen.
Alternativ habe ich ja noch meine PAK43/41 8) :wink:
Mit deiner 88 is das Gespann dann ja locker 4m oder?
Mit meiner PAK komm ich auf Gespannlänge von gut 3m
