PostSubject: Henglong Leopard2 Wiring   Thu Aug 24, 2017 2:06 am

I just extended all the wiring going from the rx18 to the turret on the Leo so I can pull the top chassis off and lay it on its top without ripping off the connectors.  Any issues with extending the motor or smoker wires as well?  I'd like to move the rx18 to the front as it seems to always get in the way when putting the top chassis on, any issues with extending these?

Also, I'd like to move the power switch up under the hatch where you load the bb's as there is a blank hole there for a switch already.  Is the turret easy to split and is there a way to confirm before hand if there are the mounting posts on the underside of the hole where a switch must've been on earlier revisions?

Putting in wire extensions is fine. You will need to make sure that as the turret swivels, no wires will bunch up and get caught in the turret ring/teeth and possibly get crushed. If you are planning on extensions, I'd recommend making a single bundle, or minimized the numbers of stray/loose wires.

I can bring a bunch of loom for people at the Sept 9-10 event in Waterloo.

I zip tied the ones for the turret, but was thinking of wire loom.  Would look nicer for the hull wires as well, what size would be good?  I'm assuming 3/8" would be too big.

I used 1/4" loom (which is what I have.) Although I also have access to some 3/8 and larger (Not much however).
