The xt60 connector that came on your battery is a very good one and I use them on all my tanks. All LiPO batteries from HobbyKing that are 3000 milliamp hours or more come stock with the xt60 connector on them so it just makes sense to switch over to xt60 connectors in my tanks. They're also much better connectors than Tamiya. For the 6s lipo in my 1/6 scale hetzer I went with the xt90 connectors. They also make an xt30 that is smaller.

I have converted to the XT60 connector on my batteries also. For the tanks I haven't converted to the XT60 (yet) I built myself a gender changer cable so it doesn't stop me from using them based on batteries.

Working out where to place hidden battle system IR emitters can be installed in cupola and just looking for a nice spot to place the 4 hit lights to fix IR in place in cupola use gorilla grip 👍

Seeing i have a mushroom I will just show you what it looks like if you decide to use it .


The locking mechanisms to secure the upper turret are simplistic and work a treat

There is a lot to do in modification of upper turret which will take some time .

With the metal grille spruce there is plenty of material to make brackets .
The Tow ropes are just not right will fabricate workable.

The commanderís head begins to turn about 32 seconds into the video. Nothing spectacular but itís kind of cool to have some crew animation. Next Iíll modify the loaderís head to turn.

I don't know if Jeff still sells them, I might have a skull, but no hands. I'm fairly sure he scratched those one off anyway and never went into production on hands.

Another product i highly recommend is glueing in clear plastic, headlights , vision ports copula , Driver's hatch vision blocks is canopy glue it dry's clear you can not mess it up perfect

Gone is the mistake of using Ca glue we all know what happens when it goes wrong a mess.

Automated figurine :-
1 x ultra Nano servo
​​1x servo shaft coupler
1x 2mm Rod
1x servo speed control
1x y cable to hook into channel 4
