Tired of pulling out other tanks to test IR battle systems when I work on them, so put everything in a box and will use it as active target practice. I guess this is the same as building a gun encampment for the battle field.

Hey Tom is it like a 3D printed bracket for the receiver and emitter ? I am okay with my set-up since I just pop in TBU when I need to and have tons of spare IR emitter laying around.

That would make way more sense. How much does an Adriano coat these days ? What sense do you use ?

Wow that's crazy. What about sensor ? What do you use ? Just a IR LED receiver ? Let me know how much would love to get one from you.

Nice test bed Mike! Is that an IBU for a board?

Okay so thanks to Dean I got this small DK unit which can act as a tester as well as stationary artillery or Air Strike on the battle field. So everything in a little project box, on/off bottom plus the fire button, and it has a sensor for taking hit plus a tiny speaker. This will be the new mobile IR tester, and I can use it in the field to fight other tanks or randomly call in Air/Artillery Strike !
