It was Mick who banned you from rctw, his user name is Son of a Gunner, he told me he banned you because you said you were in Germany but your IP address is in Australia so he thought you were just trying to get your post count up so you could start selling stuff. I made it quite clear that the only way I'll come back to rctw is if Mick and Herman step down as moderators. There are some really good guys on that Forum, but the administration leaves a lot to be desired.

Yes there are some very good people wonder how much they pay for server time some countries are strict on lnformation and restrictions .
I am German but who cares where your from its about the hobby.
yes Herman was a very good guy .
Son of a gunner needs to step down .
before rctankwarfare turns toxic .
its about the tanks so will continue crius rcu is good forum .
I hope it does get resolved beneficial for the members .
the amount of time you contributed is valuable for those interested and willing to learn its all about passing it on to the next generation of rctank enthusiasts.
forgive me if my english is not so good .
in all good governance they should adhere to the rules not to intimidate or harassment.
they have no in-depth knowledge of IP protocol , 11pm will post some progress tomorrow.

I have several, but if I could only keep one it would be this one. Charges pretty much any battery, lipo, li-ion, nihm, ni-cad, etc, Also serves as a power supply, I can take it to the field and use it with a 12 volt car battery, and whatever else I forgot.



https://www.taigentanks.com/collecti...r-power-supply

I mainly use nimhs for tanks and lipos for trucks, so I have a couple of cheap single chargers for lipos and an Onyx 240 dual charger for nimhs. But if you're just going to have one charger, you should get a "smart charger" like the one above. And Erik has started shipping outside the US again so you should message him, but don't be surprised if one of the minions answers you. Hey, one guy can only do so much, right?

And now the obligatory rant about safety. If you go with lipos, OBEY THE FREAKIN' SAFETY RULES!!!! Never ever ever leave a charging lipo unattended!! And now back to your original programming.

As for batteries, I've always had good luck with Onyx nimhs. My local hobby shop has them and they can put whatever connector I want on them, and the 3000 mah is just over 20 bucks. I could get them cheaper online, but I'm always preachin' about supporting local hobby shops so once in a while I have to put my money where my mouth is. And Onyx is a brand that's been around a while. I have 7 year old onyx batteries that still hold a charge just fine. Hmmm, maybe I should test that. Any excuse to make video, right?

Doing some surface priming I like to paint the entire tank this is a great little tool for mixing paint .
another useful tool to open the Tamiya paint pot lids as you would be aware some times they are difficult to remove .

Just to mention another thing you can do is replace the slip clutch in the rotation motor many have done this just to show you the gear out of this product is used .

this gear with slip clutch


this can be done if you like at later stage as it is easy and fast to replace.
