Good job Dean. Not many people have designed and completed an entire 3D printed model, so you have joined a small club indeed. No one can say you chose an easy model to start with either!

It looks really great Dean! And wonderful to hear that the files will be available on Thingiverse..
Which is rather a good idea! i think i will be posting my stuff there also in the near future..

Can't wait on starting to build(printing) one myselves!

Looking good! ESC's under the rear bench is see? What type are these? looking much smaller then the HobbyKing XCar 45A i crammed in..

And not using my 3D files for the FAMO? Shame on you!  ;)

Hello everyone!
The T-35 is finished, and its done in less than a year!
It has been detailed (with some help) to the best of my abilities and is now mechanically reliable enough for me to be satisfied with.
Please see below some shots of the finished product. More shots and videos will be posted when I gather all the files for Thingiverse.
Let me know what you think!

Luke, thank you so much. Only a complete reinstall of Op Config helped

Open Panzer Help / Re: Shutdown on throttle w/StugIII

So my question after all this is: Does the board sound shut down if the current is exceeded on the A & B (turrent/elevation) motor outputs?? And would it pulse the motor if exceeded as above??

Something seems haunted about this Stug. Can the board shut down if you exceed current limits on the onboard motor drivers? Yes, but indirectly. The onboard motor drivers are fed directly from your battery, they do not share the same voltage as the TCB processor which is running at 5 volts. However, if you draw too much current from your main battery its voltage will drop, and since the main battery also feeds the TCB processor, if the voltage dropped enough that could indirectly cause a brownout. However, it is not clear to me that you have actually experienced a reboot - your sound card played the engine shut-down sound but that is not necessarily the same as the board rebooting. You should be able to tell if an actual reboot happened by watching the red/green LEDs on the TCB closely, or experimenting with this stuff while Snooping. I agree that a reboot could indicate an over-current condition but if you are not rebooting then there is probably something else going on.

I can't account for the pulsing motor behavior but as the problem seems to be fixed after replacing the motor I can only assume the original motor was faulty and causing the pulsing itself. The TCB should not generate any kind of pulsing signal unless something is really wrong (possibly a bridged solder joint over multiple processor pins for example).

Hi again Luke,

Okay, got the new gearboxes installed, and they seem to work better though noisy until I lubed them.  So this morning I pulled down the Stug to see how things are and the thing started okay, after which I raised and lowered the barrel and it shut itself down.  At least it went to shutdown on the sound.  So I raised and lowered the barrel after it shut down and it would be intermittent on running the motor.  I suspected maybe some interference on the airsoft case hitting or rubbing on something, so I removed the top of the tank, and it was still intermittent.  I then pulled the motor out of elevation gearbox and it still ran intermittent.  I removed the bell housing, cleaned all the oil off the commutator and brushes and reassembled.  Still ran intermittent, even worse now as it would pulse on/off.  So I put a motor on off the Hooben Elefant elevation gearbox, and this motor worked fine.  So I reassembled everything and it now seems okay. 

So my question after all this is: Does the board sound shut down if the current is exceeded on the A & B (turrent/elevation) motor outputs?? And would it pulse the motor if exceeded as above?? 

Thanks,  Jerry
