Open Panzer Help / Arduino mega
« on: May 01, 2021, 02:29:54 PM »
As the TCB is no longer available or likely to be.
I have been reading about the DIY version of the TCB using an Arduino Mega.
I have been looking about the Arduino mega but am confused as i find the Mega 2560 Arduino compatable, or another version of the Arduino Mega and also the genuine Arduino Mega, which one is required, or are all capable of installing the software to make a DIY TCB.
Obviously there is a big price difference in all of the above ranging from £10 to £45, any info would be welcome.

Open Panzer Help / Mixing of radio channels on Tx
« on: April 08, 2021, 04:49:27 PM »
A question for the Master Luke..
Whilst upgrading my Challenger 2 to Open Panzer i have utilised just about all the functions available plus some with some lateral thinking and a bit of my own humble electronic bodgery, however i want to try something else that i have not seen documented any where ( could be i just cannot find it )
Anyway here goes.....
I have the ability to set up mixed channels on my Tx that i can activate via a dual rate switch when i want them and then go back to normal mode... now the big question, would the TCB understand what was going on and mix them on the tank OR would it just confuse the heck out of it OR cause damage ????
I think i am up to about 15 functions at press so any info would be great.

Open Panzer Help / Issues with adjusting servo pan on elevation
« on: March 16, 2021, 08:08:48 PM »
Hi folks.
Just tried to adjust the end points on the gun elevation and went through the dip switch 3 and 4 to on held the input button for 2 secs and off went the servo to one end point, all ok, then moved it to where i wanted it all ok then moved over to alter the other end point the servo moved to this end point BUT i could not adjust it like the first end point it just would not move, any one had this before ?  Or am i missing some thing ?.
I came back out after pressing the input button again and still had full pan effect on the servo...weird..

Open Panzer Help / powering a servo for opening a door from the TCB
« on: July 18, 2020, 04:14:13 PM »
Hi Luke,
I wonder if you could assist me please, I am currently building a model that requires a door to be opened on the turret of the model and was wondering if this could be achieved via the TCB and assigning a function to Open then Close it via a small servo..
I cannot use a by pass from the receiver I am using as it is an SBUS receiver ie only one set of plugs for all the channels.
