RE: Question about radio system

You won't run into technical problems, but they simply licenced the two frequency bands for different purposes. Possibly to reduce interference between users. The spread spectrum radios (Spektrum,...

RE: Mato 2000mah battery capacity

The lipo packs are 3.7 volts per cell, so the 2 cell packs are 7.4 v output. This works great in substitution for nicad or nimh 6 cell packs. I'm using an Orion pack that is the same physical...

RE: Mato 2000mah battery capacity

I don't want to run lipo until I have a way of monitering the cells and shutting it down. Too easy to ruin without some system. I did it on a couple of airplane lipo's before I got a speed...

RE: Mato 2000mah battery capacity

Ultimately I'm going to switch to a Spektrum radio, and hopefully can figure out a way to incorporate a lipo cutoff to the receiver's drive channel. I'm rather disappointed with the short run time...

RE: Mato 2000mah battery capacity

I used to charge 3800 and 4200 for model car racing. The charger was extremely consistent and pretty much spot on for rating capacity with those race packs. I get maybe 20 minutes of run time on...

Removing parts from HL Pershing for painting

Are the accessory parts attached to the exterior of the tank body and turret, like the spare track, tool boxes, etc glued to the tank body? Can you just use an exacto blade and trim and pry them off...

RE: Moving machine gun...

If you were crafty you could do something like this with a henglong. You could wire up a small motor with a gearbox and an eccentric, triggered by the same power source as the machine gun led. Then...

RE: Spay painting the M-26 Questions ?????

Are all of the paints equally resistant to handling? I'm wondering if some are better than others for a tank that gets used and handled.

RE: HELP ....Gluing Painted Parts

Maybe just the tip of an exacto to scrape it, or an emery board for doing nails.

RE: 2s Lipo with the HL pershing

RE: 2s Lipo with the HL pershing

Hasn't cause a problem with mine yet. I'm making short runs with my Orion 2S 3800 lipos. They are probably providing 7.4v under load instead of 7.2 or less with nicad. Maybe wishful thinking on my...
