So I made a huge mistake with installing the SLU. I didn't take notes or pictures of some of the wiring to the turret motors. Now I'm stuck and afraid to do anything Embarassed

If anyone can tell me where to solder the reds and blacks to these motors I'll be forever in your debt!

I believe with the turret motor it doesn't matter so much. If you attach the wires the wrong way your turret will just rotate the opposite direction. To fix it just switch the plugs on the ESC board. I'm sure Hulu or Tim can confirm this.

Is the other motor an airsoft or recoil?

Yes, you can wire the turret traverse and barrel elevation motor either way. If you get the polarity backwards, just reverse the way you plug it into the ESC.

As for the airsoft, the SLU connects to it opposite of the polarity that Heng Long did it.

If you need help getting it finished, I can spare a few minutes tomorrow.

I will bring my solder station to help, if I can.

If any one needs wires for there tanks (red black) I have a lot of cut offs people can have (3 feet long ++) I will try to remember to bring some.

I got the 400 motors and Steel Gearboxes finally. Wired everything up and finally.... FINALLY!!! finished installing the SLU... but as Tim can attest for this, the Hobby King controller is messed up six ways sideways with the throttle.

I tested it off ground and realized one of the motors is turning the opposite way when driving foreward... Do I resolver the wires the otherway?

Not yet. When I get home I'm gonna switch it. But while I was playing with the controller trying to figure it out it was zipping around side to side like a psycho

Me and Greg had the same thing happen to us when we hooked up ours to the Panzer III and T-34. We used the same set-up as the HL and we both had to switch the wires around on one of the motors.

Just unplug it from the ESC and plug it back in the other way around, it will reverse it.

This crossed my mind as I casually placed my loose speaker atop the ESC... It has since been moved.
