Default Vladimir T-90 modifications

Hello, I was in Finnish tank-army with T-54 and T-55 tanks, and now I'll try to get T-90 moving and shooting like real.
It is not easy, but let's try.
The mecanical bilding is near finnish, and now I am making the shooting and aiming more real.
First laser aiming with FPV driving, and shooting, with Arduino stabilizing for barrel and traverse, but it takes a little time.
If somebody has played with Arduino, I'm hearing any advice.

Later on I am adding some pictures of my project.

This evening I started to move the main switch from the bottom to backside of T-90 to make easier use the main switch.

Sounds like a fun project. It’s a lot to pack into the small spaces of the T90. Look forward to following your progress.

I made more space with a pair of tricks. I'll put few pictures in the following weekend, so You can see how I did it.
I had to measure the space in mm-scale, but I succeeded, that is my opinion. Let's to see.

Iím in the middle of the same battle trying to pack everything into my T-90(seems like everything is down to the mm as well...ugh)...Iíll post pics of my install in the next week or two...be interesting to see how many different solutions to the same T-90 space issues lol. One thing I saw a bit to late was a buddy converted the battery box AS the speaker box..wished Iíd thought of that, but had already cut mine out lol..

I am making this weekend a www-side of my project, it'll be easier to keep all up to date, and anybody needs only to give the address of the project to find that.
New pictures are needed to see the layout of the electronics.
I think to get ready with this tomorrow.
I have more than 40 pictures of T-90, but I must take a few more to get seeing in the layout of the electronics inside the frame

My project is coming here: "mattikauppi.fi/Vladimir-T90" (I am not allowed to make a working link, so copy-paste the text between " "-marks to your browser).
Obs! The www-address is changed for better visual!

For anybody interested I found a supplier with really nice 1/16 T-72/T-90 crewman...I’ve already received one, might go ahead and get the gunner as well.... A little pricey, but well worth the money...fantastic quality..

The maingun stabilization by Arduino with MPU-6050 is going on.
I am adding pictures in my project Vladimir T-90 allways, when something new is done.

I am taking small steps with Arduino to getting turret and barrel stabilizion.
I am working with Uno and I'll change it to Nano.

The work is now a little slow, but before summer I think I'll be ready.

Heureka, I found it!
I have searched an Arduino-code, which would be suitable for my T-90 project, and now I think I found it:
http://www.circuito.io
This is a graphical solution, with which You can draw arduino components to the worktable, and this solution makes automatically the wiring and the code.

Untested solution:
- Arduino UNO or other controller
- The controller can be changed by only one mouse drawing
+ MPU-6050 gyro
+ Servo 180 deg, mini or normal
+ Servo 360 deg, mini or normal
+ Servo signals from Tx or Tank Electronic Motherboard
- It seems easy to move some workings from Tank Electronic Motherboard to Arduine Controller for instance Aiming Laser ON-OFF, or the Main Gun muzzle blast

I have not tested this solution, but it seems very easy to use.

Here the circuit diagram and component lay out.
If You download the solution, You'll get also the Arduino code:
