Default My Tiger 1 tank build

Thought I would post just to give some ideas to other builders, my Tank is a Heng Long Tiger 1 with metal tracks and gears

Threw out the rc boards and installed a flysky fs-i6 receiver,

left joystick moves turret left/right and gun up/down (using servo controllers taken from 45g continuous rotation servos to drive original motors)
right joystick - elevon channel mix for directions using two ESC 320A works well (stopping to reverse but guess that would be normal in real tank too)
Switch A fires the gun (using 9g servo controller board with 5v relay module)
Switch B plays audio track with dfplayer module (using 9g servo controller board)

Working really well but now need to tidy up the mess of wires Name:  smiley35.gif
