I am glad you are such a good troubleshooter, some of these problems would be very difficult to diagnose or resolve remotely on the internet. Thankfully the problem was simple in the end (if not simple to find or fix). Onwards and upwards!

Since there is such lively communication that it cannot but rejoice, the project must live and develop, and it is especially pleasing that the author did not abandon the project, I will write my question.

Although I started a separate topic in “show and tell”, at the stage of this post preparation and testing-studying the settings, I was faced with the problem that I can’t configure the settings when I:

I turn on the transmission, and the smoke machine toggle switch is turned off in turn.

The tank starts up and the smoke machine works.

To turn off the smoke machine, I have to click the smoke switch on the machine.


I read inattentively somewhere, and did not understand the settings, or is it not a bug, is it a feature?

How to make sure that if the toggle switch of the smoke machine is in the off position, when the engine starts, the smoke does not work.

P.S.

I don’t need a ready-made solution, just give me a hint where I should direct my efforts.

I’m interested in sorting it out myself, with a minimum of hints.

Спасибо. Thanks.

Hi NS, another user reported this very same problem recently in this thread. It is a bug, if the smoke switch on your transmitter is in the OFF position, the smoker should not start when the engine is started.

Can you verify what version of firmware you are using? Version 0.93.68 fixes this bug, but was only just released about a week ago so I would not be surprised if you are using an earlier version.

Yes, I read that there are some difficulties.

But English is not my native mother tongue, and yes, and the maximum that I was taught in the army was the questioning of a prisoner of war.

Do I understand correctly?

Is there some kind of problem in the code that sometimes the processing position of the smoke machine switch does not occur?

Or am I wrong configuring triggers?

I can’t say for sure at the moment what firmware I have, but I tried the following parameters of your project, and I dance with joy:





The printed circuit board works. Partially figured out how it works.

Checked by:

1. The work of the smoke machine. Damn, cool, there is a proportion. But for today, a bug is saved in the firmware, the author has a note about it, it works.
2. Tower operation (ESC with commutator motor)
3. Work and calibration of the modes of operation of the lifting tool. (as in HL on the gear motor, and from the servo, in the mode of holding the position by deviation (pan-effect)
4. Rollback tools by means of servo. I did not spread Airsoft on my board, because I did it. I parted the pins of the mikrik of the airsoftorudia, and the power unit - laughed.
5. Light, dimensions, brake light, machine gun and their configuration via USB
6. Work from the Sbus successor. (I do not have an Ibus receiver, in my version of the board I implemented work from both types).


Not verified:

1. Work of a high-brightness flash of a shot (not available, there is a connector on the board)
2. Configuring the control board through the broomstick. There is a connector, there is a blue-tooth, it’s just that his hands have not yet reached his tests.
3. The operation of the motion motors, assembled on the tank, and the setting of delays, inertia and other things have not been verified.
4. Also, the logic of the jerk of the tank during firing has not been verified. Luke made changes there.
5. The port has not been tested for connecting the sound card of the openpanzer, Benedini and others, due to the reason I do not have it. I’m working on my version of the sound card from the openpanzer (I’ll just remove the flexibility and versatility of the original as unnecessary and reduce the size).
6. The operating modes of the IR battle and its performance have not been verified. .

There was a problem with the code, but it should now be fixed with the latest firmware.

To know what firmware you have, simple connect in OP Config, the firmware of your TCB is displayed in the lower left corner of the screen.

To update firmware, first check for OP Config updates (go to "Help" menu and select "Check for Updates"). If an update is detected, install it.

After OP Config is updated, then go to "Firmware" tab and select "TCB" firmware, and click the "Get Latest Release" button. This will download the latest TCB firmware from the web. Now with your TCB connected to the computer click the "Flash" button and the new firmware will be loaded onto your board.

Hopefully that fixes the problem with your smoker switch, but if not let me know.
