Wow, really enjoyed the clip. the Evil Kenevil run up at the end was heart stopping.
I'd have needed to change my boxers after that.
I'm going to have to change one of my earlier posts "You need bigger lower table"
It made my day.

Well done Youngjae :mrgreen:

I think you need some rubber matting on those ramps Youngjae.

I installed option packs and organized lines today.
And I learned to use the audio module.
I taught the sound card from the three-step switch of the flysky FS-i6x transmitter.
So I could control the sound. :mrgreen:
Next time, I will test the smoke system while waiting for the arrival of a new motor that can spin the turret.

Merry Christmas~~^^

I came to see a movie with my wife after work today.
Before I left home, I took a moment to test my Chieftain smoke and sound option pack that I had worked on yesterday.
And I got two battery charging lines installed in the battery.
So far, everything is going well.

Happy Christmas to all of you

My Chieftain came down completely from the workbench today.
While waiting for the turret motor to arrive, I first re-installed the rear deck and toolbox.
I used flywood to make battery tray, I used Velcro tapes to fix the bottom of the tray and put the battery on the tray.
And I found that the battery didn't shake even in the test runs on several slopes.
I did not use the smoke option and ran the secondary test for about an hour, and after confirming that there was nothing unusual, I parked the Chieftain on the floor of the workshop and hung the charge. :mrgreen:

Looking forward to seeing the completed Chieftain "Berlin".
I take it you have elevtion gear fitted. Did you opt for the recoil option too? 8)

Of course, I also chose the Recoil option.
The recoil will work as a servo.
I'm going to finish assembling and test it's. :mrgreen:

Great video on the return rollers Youngjae! If you have the opportunity, would you mind measuring the diameter of where it has worn the most? This would then give an indication of how much material is left. Many thanks in advance.

I have no plans to measure right now.
For measurements, the side skirt must be loosened and the track must be lowered.
These tasks are very cumbersome.
But I'll measure it if I go through this series of procedures because I need maintenance one day.
I'm sorry. And thank you.

Regards

Following Chris’ advice,
I modified the battery tray, re-positioned the battery, and completed the third test run.
I'm having a calm end of the year waiting for the turret motor. :)

It looks like you now have the batteries under the mounting bracket for the turret turn motor.

The motor is very long, so you may not be able to fit it without moving the batteries again :cry:

Happy New Year.~~^^

My Chieftain is waiting for the modified turret motor to arrive yet to complete.
I did a driving test on my tank in the garden in front of my house. The topography of the garden is very flexible for the tank, but my Chieftain broke through without difficulty.

That's not a garden , it's a tank proving ground😁

Attach a plough onto the back and you can plough the soil while you're at it😝
