Open Panzer Help / Heng Long 7.0+ compatability
« on: December 01, 2022, 11:02:33 AM »
Its been a long while since I've posted or engaged in this hobby.  Boy was I pleased to see how far its come in a couple of years.  New models, new mother boards.  Exciting stuff.  I've reconsidered selling my stuff off now that I see whats been happening.  I'm posed with a new question now. 

Is the TCB compatible with Heng Long 7.0+ boards?  In this thread ( regarding the 6.0, there was discussion about the 6.0 using Tamiya code.  I assume this is also the case with the 7.0's but I don't know for sure.

Also, does anyone know if the Heng Long wiring kit with IR emitter and battle apple will work with the TCB?

Open Panzer Help / FPV camera, which output?

Which output should I use to power a micro FPV camera?  I assume the AUX but it appears that intended for lighting.

Open Panzer Help / 9x, mode 1, throttle and steering swapped
« on: December 02, 2018, 09:55:51 PM »
Hey all,
I cant figure out the issue with this for the life of me.  I have a Turnigy 9x (mode 1) with an iA8 AFHDS 2A receiver.  Its set to mode 1 in the firmware.  I setup the radio in OP config according to instructions and the right stick (mode 1) is assigned correctly to throttle, up/down (chan 3) and steering, left/right (chan 1).  OP config see's them correctly however when I operate the tank the controls are swapped.  Up/down controls steering and left/right the throttle.  This is further confirmed because when I change the forward and reverse speed under the "limit driving speed" menu the tank turns slower in neutral steer.  Also, changing the max neutral turn speed affects the forward/reverse speed.

I tried swapping the channel order and can control the tank properly but then the settings under driving then don't behave correctly because they're inverted as described above.  The tings for Forward/reverse speed is affected by "max neutral turn speed" settings and vise versa. 

I suspect this is a tx setting issue but I'm new to the 9x (and modern RC in general).  The model type in the radio is set to "acro".  The receiver is correctly connected to the ibus/ppm/non-inverted serial port on the OP board.  I did swap it to the sbus port and the tank behaves in the same manner with no changes made to the transmitter.  The tx is also set to PPM under the "MODULAT" menu and PPM i-bus under the "output select" menu. I also swapped the tx settings to PWM and the tank has a mind of its own.  The motors run without any tx input.

I should also mention that I'm using the Hobby King xcar 45A ESC's and both are programmed to "Crawler" mode.  OP config is set to Tank (Dual drive motors), RC Output, and I'm using the built-in drivers for turret elevation/traverse.  Also, the red positive pin on the ESC's was removed as indicated in the wiki.

I'm hoping that I don't need to flash ER9x (although I may want to anyway) so i can change the channel order on the tx by swapping Chan 1 and 3 so it doesn't affect the OP config settings.

Any insight is appreciated.

TCB Dev / PS3 controller/transmitter question
« on: May 22, 2017, 05:53:06 PM »
Hello all!  In considering a radio setup to pair with the TCB (and after reading the wiki) I remembered another project I came across.  The creator made a PCB for a PS3 controller to utilize the XBee transceiver to control his projects.  It uses and AtMega328P  processor and I believe the XBee he used utilizes wifi to transmit data but I'm unclear on if this would work with the TCB.  I believe the receiver uses serial protocol (same as PPM?) which I think will work with the TCB but can anyone confirm that this sort of thing will work?

A link to the project:
