 +title     = INTRO 
 +====== OPEN PANZER Wiki ====== 
 +Here you will find everything you need to know about Open Panzer products:  
 +  * **TCB** (Tank Control Board) -- a highly capable circuit board designed specifically for RC model tanks, but also suitable for halftracks, cars, and other RC models and robotics. It is available ​ for [[https://​hobbyking.com/​en_us/​catalog/​product/​view/​id/​63061/​s/​rc-tank-openpanzer-control-board|purchase through HobbyKing]]. ​  
 +  * **OP Config** -- the unusual name we have given to the free software that runs in Windows (sorry, no Mac/Unix at this time) and is used to configure the many options on the TCB and simplify firmware updates. To run OP Config you will need a Windows computer and a screen with a vertical resolution of at least 800 pixels.  
 +Two other products, the [[wiki:​scout:​start|Scout ESC]] and the [[https://​github.com/​OpenPanzerProject/​OP-Sound|Open Panzer Sound Card]], are still in development and/or not yet available for purchase, but we still have complete documentation for them.  
 +=====Navigating the Wiki==== 
 +This Wiki is divided into sections:  
 +  * **[[wiki:​tcb:​operation:​start|TCB Operation]]** - a high-level overview of some basic concepts, like how to drive, IR battle, what are Functions and Triggers, etc... 
 +  * **[[wiki:​tcb:​tcbinstall:​start|TCB Installation]]** - In this section we devote a full page to every possible device the TCB can control or that you might want to install in your tank: from airsoft, mechanical or servo recoil, smokers, sound units, IR, flash units, lights and more lights, Bluetooth, you name it! The TCB can control a lot of stuff.  
 +  * **[[wiki:​opconfig:​gs:​start|OP Config Introduction]]** - An introduction to the OP Config program and how to use it to connect to the TCB.  
 +  * **[[wiki:​opconfig:​tabs:​start|OP Config Tab Reference]]** - Each page or "​tab"​ in OP Config has its own section in the wiki that describes every setting.
