Default Smoker units

Does the Taligen come with its own brand smoker or is it henlong?

also I havenít been on on years so does the super smoker exist still and if so who sells it. Also is it compatible with the new 6.0 henlong and the Taligen?

While they are similar in shape the materials used on the inside are slightly different. The TG one is still hooked up via one cable so it depends on what system you connecting to it.

Default Smoker

Iím trying to find a better smoker for the HL tiger metal wheel/track upgrade edition I just bought.
I see a bunch on eBay but Iím not sure if any are good. I know someone was working on a super smoker at one point.

whats the best smoker upgrade for the HL tiger?

Best I've seen are GI Smokers.

I think they're on FB too.

I've been known to make my own with a 10 ohm, 1 watt, wire wound resistor. If that might interest you. I can post a video after work that shows its performance. I have it in my jagdpanther and it makes a ridiculous amount of smoke.

I highly recommend the GI Smoker Baroness 2. Just make sure itís compatible with your electronics. The fan is very quiet.

Default Yes love too see

Iíd love to see the video with the 10 ohm.
I have an old smoker unit from a previous generation if it will fit with my 6.0 Tiger I just got.

Default Nice work

Is yours a Taigen? Also do you have the links on how to build this (parts wiring etc?)

That's a taigen smoker, but they're almost exactly the same as the HL smokers. I simply replaced their element with the 10 ohm 1 watt wirewound resistor with Kevlar cord wrapped around it, and attach the 25 mm fan to the top, after drilling a hole in the top of the cylinder and another hole going into the smokebox, both 1/8 in Holes. When I get a chance I'll see if I can find the videos from Normand that I originally used, but maybe someone else knows where to find that and will provide us with a link?

His acoustic smoker is also a little work of art. If anyone knows where to find that, please provide us with a link.

Default Did you move stuff around?

Mine has the smoker on the back corner and the speaker behind the battery? Mine is the Panzer IV though.

Most of my tanks have aftermarket boards so stuff has been moved around so that it fits. You'll have to experiment.

I say this so often that I am sure many on the Forum are bored hearing it,
But one of the first things I do when I get a new Tank is to take the body off of the hull and strip everything out of the hull except the gearboxes,
I then glue a sheet of "Velcro" that covers the whole floor of the hull and a similar lining to both walls of the hull,
Now apply "Velcro" to the base of the smoker, MFU, speaker and battery,
I replace everything into the hull BUT now It goes where it is more convenient to me and I am able to "hang" the battery onto the side of the hull wall,
The amount of space that is saved is something to see. and everything is secure but can be moved/removed when it is needed.

And if you pour liquid resin in the bottom of the chassis it creates a nice flat surface. I have also found that Bluetac or similar stuff is great for mounting stuff. I have found that small things like my mini receivers don't take velcro well.

I need to relocate the power/volume before I do that since itís on the bottom of my Taigen.

Default Has as by one tried 2 batteries

Has anyone (after moving everything around in a Taigen) tried to use 2 battery packs to double the Mah. Iím thinking if there is enough room after trying the Velcro/resin floor approach that 2 3800Mah packs would last quite a while. Still 7.2V.
ant thoughts?

Bluetac is like silly putty, but used to mount pictures or posters to the wall. It sticks, but doesn't dry out. I also use it for masking camo lines for airbrushing.

Default Resistor

I think I have the 10 Ohm resistor not sure if wire wound but the Kevlar wick no.
