Default 2.4ghz to RX-18

While looking around on rctank.de I came across this http://www.rctank.de/product_info.ph...lvj0r6oh9j80e5 Now after its all said and done, you would be better off just getting the DBC, but for those that aren't interested in battling and want to use a better radio this might be the ticket. This is new to me, but others may have seen it.

Cheers,
Wade

That is the IPI4HL board, from Ivano 'Scooter', the maker of the IBU.
It does work either alone (if you just want to replace the transmitter and gain momentum simulation) or in conjunction with a IBU compatible board for battling against other Tamiya-compatible systems.

You can get something similiar from RC TANK AUSTRALIA, and its cheaper. At present it will work with a 6channel reciever but they are trying to solve a problem with 8channel recievers, which gives you scope to add options for doing other things on you tanks. I purchased one of their TURNIGY 9X transmitters which came with a backlight update pre-fitted and the software update cable for using EEPEE software to save copies of your templates and modify them. the radio was only aus$90, the heng long to rc converter board is only $aus 30. The radio comes with a basic tank template installed and has a recoil function set on channel5 for a servo, which you can alter the speed of going both ways, the only bad thing is there are no instructions at all with the radio but if you go on their website you can find out more about using and programming the radio to do lots of different things.
They do a lot of different boards to let you tailor you tank to your needs at a reasonable price and KEVIN will gladly help you if you are not sure about things as he helped me with my setup.

Hey All,

I sell the DBCRC2 without the IR components (picture below shows all the IR components and the 2nd sound card which comes with the full kit.) but I do include in the price $ 105.00 one sound card with a custom cannon sound and you have all the connectors

on the board should you want to upgrade later to the IR battle components, they will just be plug n play. Here are the specs for what you get

Adjustable weight classes damage (1, 3, 5, 9)
reduction in speed when damaged (approx50%@1,1,1,1) (approx25%@1,2,3,5)

reload times (2, 3, 5, 9) in seconds

15 seconds from death to mobility (engine shuts down on destruction, restarts and ready to move after 15s)

temporary invulnerability after death (20 ,15, 12, 10) in seconds
Momentum/inertia option

affected by weight class

slow acceleration

coasts to a stop

soft braking (partial opposite stick)

hard braking (full opposite stick)
Super Spin disable option
Enabled by default

disables super spin completely

allows much smoother control of skid-turning at low speeds and when accelerating into a turn from rest
Radio failsafe: sets tank to neutral after losing radio signal for ~1/4second
Remote config after power on (until ignition pressed)

You can program with your Hobby Radio

can (en/dis)able Momentum

can (en/dis)able Super Spins

useful for having "realistic" motion for recreational driving, but full capability when battling

useful for disabling momentum when driving in confined spaces (protects fragile add-ons)

can (en/dis)able recoil blocking

IR input & hit LEDs interface compatible with Tamiya "apple"/TBU or DBU

IR output compatible with standard IR LED (including Tamiya's)



Thanks,

Phil

Here it is, fresh from PDF distiller.

The picture inside might not be recent, though (I think the latest version do have the signal wires soldered on board), but the instructions are.

Tried changing the transmitter modulation to PCM?
I have sent you the builder's (Ivano) email, though.
