Open Source Sound Dev / Re: SD socket hand solder?
« Last post by LukeZ on March 31, 2020, 05:07:23 PM »
It most likely is not possible, or anyway practical. The reason isn't because the pads are so small, it's because they are hidden underneath the socket where you can't really reach them. You will find the same issue with the amplifier IC.

The solution here as with the Scout is really to reflow the board.

Open Source Sound Dev / SD socket hand solder?
« Last post by Lotuswins on March 31, 2020, 04:44:05 PM »
Hi Luke,

I'm turning my attention to the sound card now, since I have my FatFingerTCB at OSH for prototype trial, and am wondering if it is possible for us fat fingered folks to solder the micro SD socket on the board by hand?  If not too easy, then is there an alternative?? 

Thanks,  Jerry

Hi,
the only way to have the barrel sound with the gyro is a solution looped into the SBUS between the receiver and the TCB.
There is the S6R and S8R from FrSky - receiver with built in 3-axis stabilization.
But this reciever cost arround 40,- or 50,-€ and you cannot set anything...
The StabiWII cost half of them and have a lot more features and is better to configure/parameterize.

I am curious if when the gyro moves the barrel, the TCB will play the barrel elevation sound too.
In this case I think not, the gyro would be controlling the barrel and the TCB would have no idea what it is doing.

Ok, I will try this new project then :)

If you are using servo outputs on the TCB and your gyro takes servo inputs, then no you won't have any problems with releasing magic smoke.

Various people have tried gyro stabilization using different methods, no one yet to my knowledge has found a simple and straightforward method that works, though I have seen some very complicated methods that work. If you have success be sure to let the forum know, it would be useful for any tank that uses servo elevation, not just those running the TCB.

Hi Luke, I don't know if it has already been discussed here in the forum or in the wiki, but I am currently replacing the stock elevation and recoil with servos in my Tamiya tanks.

The other day I had the idea of fitting a gyro as barrel stabilizer. So far I have zero experience with gyros but I think Ill be able to do it. The question is, will it be compatible with the TCB? do I have to take care of something?

After creating the magic smoke with the soundcard and that external amp, I am more cautious than ever.

Thanks!

Hi Johnny,

I just downloaded Fusion 360, as part of doing a TCB arduino shield in Eagle, so I can now modify the STEP or Parasolid files you offered, would you still be willing to post them?

I'm working on upgrading my T55A to a TCB from a Clark TK22, and a smaller speaker would work much better.  I also have to fit some HK45A ESCs into the space.  So modifying something would be much better than starting from scratch?  I'm ordering a Benedini Mini, to give it some sound presence too. 

Thanks again,  Jerry
