Show and Tell / Re: Torro Tiger II acoustic smoker

Not exactly "tomorrow" but better late than never! I recently got a lot of people asking about upgrading their Torro tanks to TCB board.. So i was quite busy lately..

Here one example of a Tiger 1 full metal from Torro/Taigen:



I had to modify the TCB mounting. The stick battery is quite a tight fit, but works nicely!

Smoker works like a charm:

And, as promised, my gift to the community! The STL files for both the Kingtiger and Tiger 1!

- Function to limit max speed. It can be useful for slow movements. It can be one function with limit 50% of speed, (or three for example: 25%, 50%, 75%).
Also, I think your suggestion is a good idea, but in the meantime you may also want to experiment with Inertia/Momentum profiles. Setting high levels of Inertia (with medium to high levels of Momentum) makes it easy to drive very slow in a smooth manner. You can have two profiles so one for slow driving and one for normal, and switch between them while driving.

Hi Sergey, thanks for the good suggestions. I think these should not be too difficult to add.

As for the turn lights, do you plan for them to blink in the same manner they do on cars? Presently there is no blink function for the A/B outputs, only on/off. You could use the Aux output for one turn signal and the MG2 output for the other turn signal, since both of those already have blink functions. Otherwise I would need to add some blink functions for A/B also.

In addition to the four triggers you list, it seems that two others will probably also be necessary - "stop" and "not turning." Those will be required to undo whatever command you issue with the forward/reverse or left/right triggers.

Open Panzer Help / Ideas for new triggers and functions

Hello there,

I'd like to share couple of ideas to TCB:
- Function to limit max speed. It can be useful for slow movements. It can be one function with limit 50% of speed, (or three for example: 25%, 50%, 75%).
- Triggers for turn lights (two triggers for left and right turns). Turn lights, i think, can be connected to extrnal output A & B.
- Triggers for forward and reverse movements

Thank you.

Hey Brad, glad to hear you got your board fixed, good job on the soldering. Maybe some TCBs will show up on the secondary market, if I hear of any I'll let you know.

I wish HK had told me in advance they were going to discontinue the product, I would have stocked up on extras to hand out to active members!

larryzhou,
I was able to pick up the replacement parts for about 5 bucks.
I was actually able to replace the 6 of 8 that I needed for my application with some patience and a soldering iron.
No pulled pads or other damage that I can observe and I now have fully functioning lights and airsoft.
I am saddened to see that these are no longer available from HK as I was hoping to convert my second project to OP TCB.
I am however very pleased that Luke gave me the pointers that I needed to get the board fully functioning.
Thanks,

Good point about the FPV, some do require special voltages.

If you have an FPV camera/transmitter that works on 5 volts, I know one user who powered his via the Aux output and so was able to turn on/off the camera from his transmitter that way.

you can use it for a FPV system. in first line i've tought to such things.
I've them also in WPL-trucks with a various number of LED's. the resistor don't have to be changed.

sabertooth tested & fitted to the chassis. Also, the ground terminal is screwed. next is the power distribution fuse box, and other wiring.
