Hi all, 

I ran into this last night testing my Tamiya Sherman, and being relatively new to them, it was a shocking revelation to me. While testing the Tamiya Sherman I got from Russ (via Jack), I noticed that the IR emitter doesn't fire and thought there is something wrong with the board, but as it turn out, I found out that if you don't have an apple plug in, the IR emitter does NOT fire IR signals.

So I guess this means you can't just go around shooting everyone if you can't accept hits yourself ! Very noble I must say, but a little shocking to me. Makes all the sense in the world but I am amaze they put in this little circuit.

Is this known to everyone ? How come we never encounters this on the battle fields ?

MikeC.

I guess I'm the exception. I didn't know all the rest of you guys can just cruise round plinking without an apple. Ha haaa

Yes you sure can. Apple function is completely separate from IR firing for Clark and IBU.
