It was that there was no method of starting the engine.  One board I have had engine start programmed to the turret stick up and left (I think), this one did not. Put engine start and stop on a 2 position switch and all is well.

An oven will work just fine and theoretically even better since you will get more even heat. Just be sure you really can control the temperature.

For the stuff we're doing it doesn't really matter and for someone reading this who doesn't want to spend the money on an oven, rest assured a hot plate will work fine. But if you want to get an oven go for it.

Hello,

This weekend I was in a local store and they were selling small 1kW temperature controlled ovens. They were compact and had a glass door I wondered if they would be suitable for pcb build or should I stick with a hotplate.

Thanks

Some people have had issues with connecting and they have found a work-around:
- Plug the TCB into your computer with the USB cable
- Open OP Config and select the correct COM port
- Go to the Firmware tab and click "Snoop" button
- If Snoop connection is successful you will see some messages in the console (either waiting for radio, or if radio is detected some diagnostic information)
- Wait for messages to console to complete
- Now click the Connect button, the TCB should complete the full connection and you can read/write settings

This is mentioned on the Troubleshooting page of the Wiki. If any other tricks are discovered they will be added to that page.

Try this and see if it works for you.

« Last post by KeesK on January 21, 2018, 01:54:11 PM »
Can anyone help me with the following,
1- I have istalled the USB drivers according specification
2- I have installed OP config
3- As soon as I try to connect the system starts trying to connect with the TCB but comes always back with the message "disconnected from device"
4- I reinstalled the USB driver more than one time, also in the way proposed by LuckZ on 13 july 2017.
Com port settings are Baudrate 115200, databits 8, parity none, stopbits 1.
System is windows 7
Anybody an Idee how to solve, I have read all the pages on Wiki, I have no more idees?
If the TCB is connected red en green led blink fast, logical radio not connected

If you have any idea what the original problem was, it might help to describe it so other people can avoid the same fate.

Hi jhamm,

I didn't even consider modding the suspension to enable a better turn, brilliant!!  Thanks for the suggestion, I'll store that away for future use since the Panther is now turning.  The last time I tried to 'tune' a torsion bar though, I broke the darn thing.....8^).   I can visualize where concentrating the load of the tank in the center will alter the moment of friction (new 'tanker' term?), reducing the force needed to rotate the chassis. 

thanks, jerry
