Source files for a new revision of the Scout ESC have been posted to the Downloads page. The only change is replacing the now-obsolete VNH2SP30 motor driver chips with their new versions the VNH5019. For more information see this thread.

Good news, Taigen has just released their first sound card for individual sale: TAG 120750 - PzIII/PzIV Sound Card

More should be following soon. These are small, inexpensive sound cards that are fully compatible with the TCB, after you make an adapter cable. The instructions can be found HERE.

The cable is not difficult to make if you are able to solder. In addition to the cable that is included with the Taigen sound card, you will need a standard servo cable. The TCB already includes three servo cables intended to be used with a Benedini sound card, so you can just use one of those. You have to splice the Taigen cable to the servo cable as shown in the instructions (picture attached below as well). The +5v signal from the TCB (middle pin on the servo connector) will actually need to be attached to two pins on the Taigen card. If you are familiar with soldering and splicing wires with a bit of heatshrink, the job will take you all of five minutes.

NOTE: The wire colors shown in the diagram will not match the wire colors of the cables you receive. Just be sure you connect them in the correct order and ignore the colors. The colors in the diagram are traditional colors for representing the purpose of each wire (ground, power, signal) but the colors that are used in China make no sense!
