So Clark posted this video about an hour ago and he mentions a ready-to-run version that's compatible with Tamiya. It's not in writing but looks like Mato has gone ahead and bundled Clark boards with their tanks. Yip!



Check out the other Sherman videos from this youtube user, uploaded in the last week.

This video is posted on you tube, but are you sure it is by Clark.

I know Mato has been working on new electronics as they have a 2.4 Ghz hobby grade radio branded "Mato" .  So it follows they would be developing a new tank control system as well.

But what if was developed to work with the Clark board. If they are selling these tanks with Clark electronics wouldn't they need to include a radio too? And why not one with their own name on it?

The Mato radio is a rebranded Flysky, Hobby King, so there is no development required to work with the Clark, so yes the Mato radio can be used with a Clark board, and maybe that is what this video is.

However I heard Mato was going down their own road with respect to a tank controller so they for sure will be releasing their tanks with something different then what they have been.  As they have the regular radio in their line up its stands to reason they are moving away from the proprietary stuff like HL and Taigen use and more into the standard hobby grade radio.  Does this mean they have a clark onboard???  Maybe, or they have gone and built their own Tamiya compatible system.  Either way it is the right direction to go.

Who knows who the video was uploaded by, it's just a normal user name really. It was posted on Clarks facebook page.

Another hint is that there are eBay 'presale' listing for this tank that actually spell out the RTR versions are using Clark boards... Again, who knows, it's conjecture but still interesting. 

eBay link

This is from the eBay site Strato had posted:

The RTR or Ready To Run Sherman is supplied with the new Mato 2.4GHz electronics package. Including the 6 channel handset and Clark Models MFU. The usual functions of these tanks can be expected, sound, turret traverse and gun elevation and depression and almost proportional control of the tank itself.


So maybe my theory might be right after all. Very Happy

I think it is more likely that the ebay seller has packaged this up with the Mato tank.

I don't think Mato did a deal with Clark, but who knows.  We will have to wait an see.

Precision Panzer is a Clark seller so................

wow you guys need to slow down a bit
This tank is sold as a bundle but by a reseller. 
You guys have any idea who panzer command is?? I do and he is certainly not Mato.
Mato is still selling their tanks sans electronics and yes the Mato tanks are coming.

Their is an electronics package coming  but it ain't what you guys are thinking, just an upgrade of what is available already.

Ah cool, yes that makes a ton more sense actually. Panzer Command rings a bell but I've never had dealings with them myself. I took a look at their eBay store and I recognize it, hmm.

Yes I know who Panzer Command is.  A UK seller that used to be active on the RCTR forum.

I figured he was just taking a Clark board installing it in the Mato tank and selling them.  Seems like a option a lot of people would want.

As far as what Mato has coming, we will just have to wait and see Very Happy As I mentioned before there has to be a reason they are selling a rebranded Flysky. They wouldn't do that unless there was need, and I am guessing they are coming up with a new system.  Will it have sound, IR batting capability, who knows?  I hope it does.

Not that it matters, but I am pretty sure Panzer Command is behind the two being sold together.

Much like Freaky could take a Mato Sherman and throw a clark board in it, and offer it for sale.

If you can find them on the Mato site with Clark electonics in them, my opinion on this would change.

Do you know what the six buttons on the bottom does ? Looks very interesting.

It would be good if it is for all the functions like Engine/Light/MG/Canon etc.

the buttons at the bottom reverse the channels, Both sticks are not self centered so that means mod time for each one, at 38 bucks though that is a cheap price. HK is still cheaper but not by much.

Just consider it a very reliable source.

THe tank will be avalable 3 different ways

Tank sans electronics

Tank with HL electronics

Tank with Mato TX and Clark board.  The bottom line is the Clark board is relatively inexpensive and it makes little sense for a manufacturer to come up with anything else.  The Clark board is good for the consumer, but there is little profit margin on it so it kind of nips any other development in the bud.

I looked at the Clark board early on and quite frankly I never saw enough profit in it to make it worth the effort.  You also have to stock so many variations that the logistics of selling this thing never appealed to me.  Freaky seems to be doing OK with it so all the power to him.  I see the price creeping up a bit, but that should be expected. A guy has to  make a buck for the effort put in otherwise this gets old real quick.

Guys should be appreciative of guys like Freaky.  It is a labour of love more then profit, and that is the cold hard truth..

I have looked at building something, but at the end of the day there is no reward for the effort.

Relaibilty and stock will be interesting to watch.
