IR emitter actually works properly or at least it did before I fully assembled the turret. Woo hoo!

Now the boo hoo! I got a 2 pin plug coming out of the turret that I didn't label or the label came off. I don't know where it goes unless it goes into CN11 the smoke switch and I don't remember anything being there (3 months ago, I shoulda taken a picture).  And one of the plugs that is for flash control, I think came off the plug from the turret and I can't tell which is the red wire pin connects too.  If I am wrong will it damage the board or the flash?

You didn't say how small the plug was , if it's real small it's either your emitter or barrel flash , your previous post showed your emitter wire red and black, that's goes directly beside your 5 pin connector, your apple base and blue ring wiring , your barrel flash wire goes in plug positioned almost in center of board , it's the only small plug there , can't miss it , hope this helps, assuming your running a clark

Yes it's a clark board. 

The tank drives, turns, flashes, makes sounds, IR emitts, MG fires, driving light works, turret rotates right, binds when past centerline to the left, grumble, no elevation or depression, grumble, but I am sure that plug is in wrong slot.

I didn't plug in the two plugs. I can hopefully post a pic or two tomorrow after work.

Your turret and elevation function is in your 8way plug , shouldn't be an issue , check your connection, also check your alignment holes on your turret ring, , it could be warped due to misalignment, make sure there siting in all 3 screw holes correctly , this will cause a bind , sometimes the little things causes the biggest problems , lol

I figured it out, the extra loose plug was for the apple, once I figured that out, the rest was easy. The smoker is not working, the elevation control is ok.

The apple ? Never seen the apple plugged into some other plug than the 5 way with the blue ring, you must have some weird wire setup

I think Dean said Mike wired it up.  It's got a 2 pin connector  and a 3 pin connector on the Apple.  2 pin is a plug on the side of the apple. 3 pins on bottom of apple.
