Open Panzer Help / Squeak settings
« on: June 11, 2021, 10:17:45 PM »
First off I love the function of the 3 slots for random track squeaks and how adjustable it is! Great idea. My only issue is
it seems to work at times but not others? When it does it sounds great but other times, just won't kick in..curious if this is a common issue. Or if any way to get it to be more consistent? Interval setting is set at 1000/2000 2000/5000 3000/8000 mS

Open Panzer Help / Update issue
« on: June 03, 2021, 01:42:49 PM »
Hey Luke,

Trying to change some functions and a pop up window shows latest version
needed. I believe I did update it to .93.73 as functions show high and low not a and b
on external outputs a/b. It says latest release when I hit "Get Latest Release" tab.
When I try to flash it (just to try) it says no file found. But the issue is I cannot connect
as pop up window shows device needs update? Also if I hit a question mark on a tab like
sound for let's say mechanical barrel..pop up reads " The collection file 'C:/Program Files etc. do not exist?



Open Panzer Help / second board overheating??
« on: December 06, 2020, 11:15:31 AM »
My second board was working fine but now overheating and it happens when detached from nothing external
touching anything on the board. Is there anybody on the forum who could possibly try fixing it if it was mailed to them?
Just discouraging as it was working fine but clearly something shorted out.

Open Panzer Help / 2nd machine gun
« on: November 25, 2020, 09:53:49 PM »
Is there a way to add a second sound to the 2nd machine gun or will it auto trigger the primary machine gun sound?

Open Panzer Help / Hot area on board
« on: November 19, 2020, 07:46:26 PM »
Was lucky to acquire two more 3 in total! Two from England and one from Poland :)

My first board gets very hot in the area indicated in red. I didn't think this is supposed to happen
and the other ones only get mildly warm. The "hot" board seems to work well but sometimes
things do act certain functions trigger other times they take a few tries.
Not a huge issue but curious if anybody had this area get very hot or perhaps knows what it could be
and if it could cause the board to act a little wonky?


Open Panzer Help / Recoil wiring
« on: October 21, 2020, 11:12:30 PM »
I wired my Taigen perfectly using the video and going to get a servo system for KT
but trying to fit Stug with recoil for TCB and slightly confused with this set up as to which wires
would be for positive / negative / signal  for the 3 pin plug?

In my diagram number #1  would be the positive to motor.

But unsure which of the others would be the negative and signal.

Any help appreciated :)

Open Panzer Help / New Board / visual check
« on: October 16, 2020, 03:06:00 PM »
I can't quite recall where the photo of what to look for in the proper board soldering is.
Does this board look correct? Brand new and I have the opportunity to buy it so just
checking if all looks good. Thanks..

TCB Dev / Gear Shift
« on: October 15, 2020, 07:00:34 PM »
Curious how difficult it would be to add a gear shift option? Perhaps 3-4 "shifts" at adjustable percent speeds.

Open Panzer Help / Servo Recoil
« on: October 12, 2020, 03:25:59 PM »
I have ordered a servo and elevation recoil unit to use and just tested recoil using another servo I had using the output for gun fire.
It works each time with recoil set on cannon fire which is great. (Have not tried setting to mechanical
trigger or see need to?) One thing though and not a big deal..upon turning power on... Servo does some fast movements then upon triggering
cannon does the proper fast/slow recoil return movement. I have not adjusted end points or anything yet.

Open Panzer Help / RC on off switch
« on: October 07, 2020, 04:39:29 PM »
Looking to use a rc switch RC (Remote Controlled AUX on/Off Electronic Switch Relay for Car Truck Boat LED Light Drone (8A)
I think maybe two ways to control this..but the IO output is best? What would it be set to in functions/triggers?
Going to use it to turn power on/off to the heating element which I boosted voltage a bit to. Using Smoker
switch for fan only.

Open Panzer Help / Recoil questions using TBS
« on: October 03, 2020, 11:49:27 AM »
1.Have recoil modified and set up using stock taigen style recoil unit. Question is the way the recoil is now
set up with 3 pin..can the TBS also trigger recoil using last two sets of 3 pins? Setting up let's say
sound 3 cannon trigger and choosing  A 1-4 pins on TBS.

2. Upon start up and first try triggering cannon; sound and flash go off but no recoil. After that it works fine (?)


Show and Tell / Many thanks :)

Finally got tank all wired up properly and TCB is working in every aspect perfectly. So again want to express how great not only
the design is but also the set up and instructions..perfectly clear and comprehensive.  I know this is a labor of love for those involved and it is much appreciated! So again my hope is it will be up and running in production again soon!

Open Panzer Help / Auto start not turning off?
« on: September 27, 2020, 07:11:16 PM »
Overall great experience with TCB but a few quirks..have auto start off on TBS (manual start). Start/stop on switch toggle function.
Set auto start on throttle stick. At first when power up engine would start with first movement of throttle then after use toggle for  for stop and restart.

Now when powering up tank, engine starts up with out touching anything? Took throttle start function off but still auto starts on power up?
Not a huge issue just weird and wondering if anybody had that happen?  Also cannon also fires fully when using left stick (up/ center) but not always when using trigger switch? Machine gun always works perfectly with switch.

Show and Tell / Great board!
« on: September 26, 2020, 10:56:02 PM »
Just want to share how much I am enjoying using the TCB! I had read quite a bit about it before and wished I bought a dozen before production stopped. But was lucky enough to get one from somebody in the EU. My only experience was using the BARC with TBS which was not a bad idea to convert the stock tank and RX 18 to something good. But this board is amazing and again want to thank all involved in creating it. Literally everything in terms of how to use is spelled out clearly and in the end the main thing.. it is FUN. I am spoiled using this fingers crossed you guys will get it back in production!

Open Panzer Help / Commission a new board?
« on: September 25, 2020, 11:33:55 PM »
I managed to acquire a board and it is great. Would love to have another, but since it is no longer in commercial production..looking to see
if anybody would be willing to build one for me? I anybody is interested you can PM me or email me directly at
either way..really appreciate all the work done in making this and the support in detailing every aspect in setting up and how to use :)
