Check this out guys.

Just ordered some upgrade motors for the Panther, servos & continual rotation servo *wink wink*

More parts if you know what to look for, and at $8 shipping, go for it.

Wow my favorite servos (HS-311 and HS-81) for $10 and $13 respectively. Very sweet. 360 continuous servo as well if you want to upgrade to servo rotation.

Yes that's the idea. Although I don't know what gears / belts or what not to make it work.

I did it on all my moderns (M113,Bradley, Leo and ZTZ). You just need to remove the last gear from a Heng Long rotation unit and mount it onto the servo. You can either mount the servo the same position as the old rotational unit on the upper hull, or you can mount it on the lower hull so when you pull the upper off the turret is free to move, just like the real thing:

Good day troops, just joined the site and looking at getting started in the RC tanks, Canadian of course, it seems theres no clubs or groups in Nova Scotia, so wheres the closes group?  also do you mostly build from kits or is there a place to find units ready to go?  Thanks

Welcome Terry........ There are a number of sources depended on price range and whether you want to build from kit. Kits would be the standard 1/16 Tamiya's, and ready built you can get from Heng Long, Taigen and Torro brand.

If you are only looking for RC tanks and not too concern about club battles, then all of these options would work for you. If you are looking for Club battle, you will need to get Tamiya Battle System, which comes standard with Tamiya tanks, but you will have to mod the others (Change electronics) to get them to be Tamiya compatible.

Motors and stuff I usually goto the local RC hobby shop. Servos are eBay for sure. Specific tank electronics will depend on what you preferred.
