Hello!
Recently I install IR battle system on my CF Leopard 2 but IR range is too short, only 6 feet, even changing better IR LED.
Swap Clark board. surprise !! The IR range is over 25 feet. It's depend on the board.
Problem now. Cannon recoil goes different direction.
How to change it on Clark board? Please give me an advise
Thanks

Hach just go into programming mode and use Channel Down/PROGR - button on the remote and it will switch the servo direction.

I have pretty well given up on trying to figure out why some clark IR just doesn't or stop working when it use to before All my batters will be on IBUs.

Hi Mike ! plug in program cable then press Channel down or program. It will change direction after that ?

In regards to the Clark and recoil direction...

Does the Clark board start the servo in a neutral position or in an extreme position?
Aka From zero angle to +-60 degrees (120 total)
Or from zero angle to 120 degrees one way?

I believe it is from 0 to 120 extreme position. Note as above, you can reverse the direction in the programming.

I've never actually checked it so hard to gauge, but I am looking into that for the new recoil design so that having it run backwards does not destroy the gears.

I always leave mine disconnected on a new build till I fire it up and see which way it locks first...
