PostSubject: Century 21 Bradley M2 RC'ed   Tue May 12, 2015 12:53 pm

Hi guys,

Just posting some pics and couple of videos of my C21 Bradley M2 that I RC'ed. The C21 Bradley is quite something as even though it is static, the upper is all metal, and all the hatches/compartments are open and hinges are all metal rods as you can see in the pics. After my M113 project I decided that this one will have proper working suspension, tracks and gears, so I cut-up a HL Pz III (Length wise and the back-end) to fit the Bradley upper. Transplanted the sprockets and bogies over, and keep the C21 backend with the idlers since I need the back ramp and the opening. The rest are the usual fare, Clark board (need to change it to a Leo board to get the sound), servo elevation and servo rotation (Neither of them off the Clark board as I find the Clark is no very good with servo control other than the recoil), MG is wired to the 25mm Bushmaster, Cannon flash and IR is wired to the twin pod TOW. Lights as usual. Still trying to decide if I should fit a smoker into it.

Here is a short video of it in action.

More of a shelf queen I am afraid. I never really run these things hard anyway, but funny enough, my RC toy M113 was one of my best runner at Fort York which was like sand dunes with grass patches. Can't imagine this one running that great on grass but you never know !

Besides they are all set to 1 hit (as a soft skin vehicle) so won't be running for that long in a battle. One spray shot from anyway and it is DOA.

Oh I'm a Bradley fan, this is cool..!! Now Mike, do the turret and rocket launcher too Wink

If only a 'proper' r/c 1.16 existed... it'd be popular I think. It's a very cool vehicle.

Jordan, I don't have room in the turret to do the TOW launcher. The elevation servo is on the same side unfortunately. Because I use servo rotation it took up another chuck of room in the crew compartment as well.

This one is actually pretty close to 1/16 even though it is suppose to be 1/18. I would say it is probably more like 1/17 or there about since it is definitely bigger than the Unimax 1/18.
