Open Panzer Help / Re: Motors swapped and ligths don't work

Hi FP, please read this recent thread where a user reported a similar issue, the cause turned out to be reversed motor wires.

Your description is not entirely clear but my best advice is to start again from the beginning. Run the radio setup routine and make sure OP Config is correctly reading your radio, and that when you move your sticks OP Config interprets the directions and channels correctly. If not, adjust in OP Config until it can interpret your radio movements exactly as you intend them. Read the Wiki page again, or watch the help video.

You say you have the reverse function disabled on your ESCs. That is not correct, your ESCs need to be able to operate in both forward and reverse. If possible, you do want to disable the brake function on the ESCs. But do not disable reverse.

Once you get everything setup correctly in OP Config, then if your motors move in the wrong direction it is due to reversed motor wires.

I am absolutely confident that your problem is something very simple that was overlooked, rather than a problem with the board itself.

If English is not your first language, possibly the instructions in the Wiki are not very clear to you. If so, please try to find someone who can speak your language and English both, to help you. If you let us know hat your native language is, there may be some foreigners on this forum who can help.

As for the lights, instructions are indeed provided in the Wiki including comments about current limiting and the use of resistors. I don't know what LEDs you are using so I can't give you specific advice. Maybe your LEDs were burned out? Are they wired backwards? Double check. Observe with Snoop in OP Config to make sure your trigger to turn on/off the lights is working correctly.

If you can ask a very specific question I can give specific answers, but where things stand right now you will need to perform more troubleshooting yourself.
Open Panzer Help / Motors swapped and ligths don't work

Hi, Im getting crazy with my tank.
Finally I solved some things buy I still have problems and I need help because I dont understand what is the problem.
My tank is a Tigen full metal Early and I connected the taigen sound board.Motor are stock, the old ones.
Receiver is a Frysky compatible irange Fli14+ connected via ibus in the top pins.
Smoker DKLM V3 disconnected now.
Frysky FS-i6s , Mode 1 with spring
X2 ESC HPI , Reverse function desactivated. I think dont have brake, but not sure.

Motors problem.
In radio pahe all is OK and detect the movements like I want.
Ligth In board work rigth.
Nothing reverse, all sould work properly.
Nope, A motor work inverted to the other. I know left motor is in right side.
No way get it work. The left one work rigth, and I decide swap wires in the motor. Now the motors go in the same way but to go foward mechanicaly, the board and the configurator must show Im in reverse all is swapped. No other way than swap speeds,constraints etc, but now the problem is turning while drive is OK, but if I turn in 0 speed, is reversed, its crazy.

Lights: No one ligth work, there is current, 5V, but they dont work, they need a resistance or something, in the wiki dont tell anythind about modifications in the lights, and I connected straight foward.

Excuse my poor english

I don't actually know Hobby King's plans, but as it's been a while let me ask them and I will report back here with what they say.

LukeZ,  when do you think the earliest time will be for the boards to come back in stock? January?

Just reporting back, I've looked into the GSU. It is not a standalone device, it is merely an inertial measurement sensor, a good one but one of which any number could be chosen for the job. It still requires firmware on the TCB to process the readings and convert them into movement commands for the turret motors.

In other words, the GSU does not reduce the amount of work that would be required to accomplish that feature than where we are now. And where we are now, is that the amount of work is in excess of the time I have to devote, especially given how few people would actually use it.

Short of me winning the lottery and getting early retirement, some of these features will realistically only get realized if this project attracts additional coders that are willing to work on the firmware. For now I'm afraid I can't move the ball forward on that front.

They only just ran out of stock about a week ago, due to the sale they had running over Black Friday/Thanksgiving.

Hobby King doesn't keep me very informed so I can't tell you when they will re-stock but I'm sure it won't be much longer. But no one else is selling the TCB so until then you'll just have to wait.

Been watching hobby king for re-stock, but to no avail, they are not available. Anywhere else I can pick up 3 more TCB's?

Great, thanks for reporting back. Nine times out of ten, it's something simple like this.

I'm glad you like the customizations and driving characteristics. Jerky and unrealistic driving was what bothered me the most when I first got started in tanks, and was the original reason I decided to make my own control board.
