PostSubject: spin spin spin   Wed Jan 20, 2016 3:05 pm

i talked to dean at the show about my KT he said it was normal, not that I don't believe him, its just none of my other tanks do it so before I get mad and run it over or sell it I wanted to ask you all your thoughts. I got my board in the mail today to be able to battle you guys but dont want to waste the time putting it in if its going to keep acting up, rather save it for a good tank.   it drives fine then if I turn it some times randomly spins even if Iam off the controller I have had it spin up to 5 times non stop..  the trims are fine everything looks good. I don't think its a low voltage thing.  this tanks been frustrating

No, you don't believe me.  Razz Razz Razz

What you are describing now is not what I understood. Basically what I said was the RX-18's have superspin so if you push you stick over they will spin in place. What you are describing where it spins on its own off the controller sounds like a signal thing to me but for sure it is something that shouldn't be happening...

Kyle,

Try swapping the electronics with your Taigen Tiger or your other Heng Long and see if the KT still do the same thing (it shouldn't). and if the the other tank start doing it you know it is the electronics. I think your KT is only one on 27Mhz crystals, right ? The other 2 is on 2.4Ghz ?

All of your electronics (Heng Long 27Mhz/2.4Ghz, Taigen 2.4Ghz) will work with the Mako board to be IR ready.

I will be in K/W this Sunday, if you want leave the KT and the Mako with me and I will put it together for you.

Sounds very much like crappy signal issues, either voltage drops or a crystal is loose and rattling around. Hard to say otherwise without wire cutters and a soldering iron.

It's Taigen electronics?

Okay I am confirmed to be in K/W for 6pm on Sunday. Kyle, if you want to bring the KT I can install either the new MAKO board or one of mine for you. I can probably do it there but make plans for me to take the tank and the board with me. If you want to bring you other tank I can also try to get them IR battle ready as well, depended on whether there is already mounts and stuff.

It will cost you, of course, parts only, so nothing a free lunch and dinner won't cover.

Kyle, most of the BB tanks has the IR mount and stuff set-up and you can have both BB and IR set-up on them. Just make sure you don't have BBs in the gun when you are doing IR battle. All the electronics have IR and BB functions, just not the emitters and receivers which are external anyway. If you want two IR tank to battle each other I can try to set that up for you.

Just have a look at the T34 and the Tiger and see which one have the mounts already in them. That would make them easier to put IR on as well.

You kinda need 2 IR tank to be able to battle............

There is also the possibility that the wire from the antenna wire maybe loose or disconnected. 
Does the tank get weirder the farther the way the controller gets?

^^^ Sounds like a very probable situation.
