it seems you be a hero...  ;D

What a hero I am.

Uncle. I registered on the RCTW forum a year earlier than you. And I read it even earlier, without registration.

You are in 2017, I am in 2016. By the way, today I first wrote on RCTW - the first comment, from 2016.

I am not saying this for the sake of exaltation, but simply as a user.

I have always counted, and I count.

The forum is a place for exchanging experiences. I now - I think that I am not strong enough to translate the work of the author LukeZ - into Russian. I just do it. I am for as many people as possible to use his labor.

If I were in his place, and my works were translated into Chinese. ... ...

Damn! My work in another hobby was translated into Chinese. ... ...

The truth about the war. But it's also nice that my work hasn't been lost, and someone has repeated my path in cosplay.

This is how I convert the unit of the fixed barrel of the HL tank (M26, without recoil of the gun) - into a gun with recoil, and the correct setting of the tilt-lift axis of the gun:

Spoiled the airsoft gun module to correctly measure the position of the cannon axis.

Made a rough 3D model. After that I will add servo mounts, a gear for lifting the barrel, for now this is only a beta version, for trying on.

How it looks now inside:

Work continues.

Thank you for your interest.

Hi  jhamm!

I am also registered with RCTW, and immediately recognized him on etsy, by his profile avatar.
I am familiar with his work on RCTW.

I don't have very much time right now but I will write you a better response this weekend.

LukeZ! You drive me into paint and I am terribly ashamed!

I am patiently waiting, I have known for a long time that you have a lot of work, it can be seen with the naked eye.
(if a person appears on the forum and spends enough time just to read - I know from my own experience that he is heavily loaded with work).
I also know that we have different time zones.
I still have something to do, waiting for an answer. I also translate the wiki.

This is a very talented author!

If I was interested in tanks of the Second World War, I would definitely buy.
I know this author from another of his projects - everything is on top there.

It's a pity that he is afraid to release his product for sale, fearing legal prosecution from the manufacturer of this tank in my country.

Even in our country where this newest tank is produced - many people are waiting for it to start selling the model, if you read their posts on Russian forums and not only.

(We are talking about T-14)

LukeZ, thx, I figured out how to translate help files, the process is ongoing, everything is clear, except for:

How do I translate the area I have highlighted in red?
Thanks in advance for the hint.

If anyone is interested, here's where I left off last time and got back to work:

1. To begin with, I got rid of the battery compartment, making sure it is a little tight, but the work is not finished yet, as you can see:

Still need to close up some holes, put the oil seals on the gearbox.

2. The reverse side, without processing yet:

3. I made (printed on a 3D printer) a bearing shoulder strap for turning the tower (0.2 mm balls are still coming from China), and gear transmission of the rotation has not yet been printed on a 3D printer

I also made a bearing for the rotating commander's cupola (The gear transmission of the rotation has not yet been printed on a 3D printer)  = (:

4. I repaired the holes left over from the attachment (not yet sealed all holes):

5. I have studied a lot of photos of a real tank, and I did not like the angle and location of the tank gun, as Heng Long did.

I modified it a bit to make it look more like the original:

With regards to changing the point of installation of the gun, I was guided by this photo, which I took in our museum:

Yes, I know it's M46, but they don't differ much in the gun mask, yes, they have different guns.

P.S. I don't remember if inserting images from third-party sources is encouraged, I set up a Flickr account just in case.

If I am doing something wrong, let me know, I will not do it again.

That's all for now, thanks for your interest.


I've been following your work and hats off to you two.  I would be happy to purchase three.  If not that then I would like use your designs to have three made for myself.  I just ordered some Heng Long tanks.  My son and I really like the Tamiya combat system but not the price tag.  I want something that can be configured to emulate it.

Dear Savall21!

At the time this topic was created, I got early experience in building a DIY TCB control board.

I still have materials for making at least three control boards, without an arduino, then I tested them completely, except for the IR combat function (it did not have an apple), and with only one Sbus transmitter. I have not tested Ibus for work, since I do not have such equipment.

I did not do the rest of the testing, since I switched to learning programming languages ​​and project localization.

I can solder this version of mine from the remnants, and give you the first first performance, and then my knowledge in electronics was meager.

But I would not even want to give - what I am not sure about.

Then - I was just learning programming and design, and I continue to learn now.

P.S. Unfortunately, I found messages in this thread, and I can't remember if I received notifications.

It was a difficult time then, I fell ill with this "fashionable" virus in a severe form, my left hand stopped working, in general everything was bad.

But I'm here again.

LukeZ, thanks for the clarification on changing the help files. There is already a little understanding of how this is done.
I will try.

I have already translated the program by 90% (I also need to translate the pictures), now I am looking for all msgBox for their translation, and I cannot understand where they are
such variables \ labels:

1. Not connected
2. Connected to COM3 (115200) TCB Firmware 0.93.74
3. When there is a call to the function of resetting the entered settings in the program to default values ​​- I can not understand where the data for translating the Yes \ No buttons is located
4. I also probably found a bug in Qt. More details:

I installed hot keys on the program menu functions, as it is very convenient when configuring the board - load with two buttons - read the settings from the board, save to the OPZ file.

On the menu function "Import settings" I have set the group of buttons Ctrl + I. In the mainwindow.ui file open in the development environment, I see with my own eyes that the group of buttons is set to Ctrl + I.

But when I build the project and run it from the relase folder, I get the result as in the picture. The hotkeys for this item are set to Ctrl + O.

In principle, I can ignore it, but my inner perfectionist gnaws at my heels.

P.S. I also feel I have to tinker with InnoSetup, I installed it on my computer, but I haven’t tried to play with it yet, making a trial assembly of the installer.
However, I think there should not be any big difficulties, most likely there you need to specify what and where to install.

Also need to study Github, and here is this point with tracking changes. I suspected there were features like comparing versions and showing changes.
I guess that Github is most likely arranged like a Wiki, most likely it is impossible to break-harm, but I don't want to disgrace myself ^ _ ^

The most important thing that pleases me is that I look into the structure of the source code - and I understand what and how it works. Everything is very logical and understandable.
For me, this is a great joy and achievement, because some time ago, I looked at the code like a ram at a new gate (Russian proverb).

As for It will be a pain in the butt and an eternity of unpaid work, so be careful if you want to go down this path!

It pleases me. It is very exciting and interesting.

There are several people tinkering with DIY-versions of the TCB but you're right posting activity has declined. However web stats still show healthy traffic to the site, I think a lot of people find the information they need without having to post anything.

Panic aside!

I am always here and I work!

Some time ago (oh, how long ago it was), I asked my beloved LukeZ if it was possible to make a Russian version of the help and a configuration program.

LukeZ said that many have tried, but usually forgotten and failed.

And what can I answer you?

I figured it out in Qt! And I succeed!

Many thanks to LukeZ, vonTirpitz for detailed explanations on setting up the development environment and more.

My path was very thorny.
I downloaded the OP Config source code from github and without a second thought downloaded the free version (registered) of Qt 6.

I set up a project, I'm trying to build it - the development environment swears at the lack of seralport.
I spent three hours reading both Russian and foreign forums, and it turned out what?
It turns out there is a list of modules that have been removed from Qt 6!

I am reinstalling Qt version 5.9.9.

I edit the code in Russian, run it from the development environment - the program starts, it turns out! I can check the settings of the TCB board, but I cannot flash the firmware!

Wrong COM port speaking.

Yes, I'm not the smartest. For three days I was struggling with this problem, and today I decided to go to the forum to see if people are smarter than me - they described their way.


I uninstall Qt 5.9.9, put the version as specified by the respected vonTirpitz and LukeZ in this thread, voila:

At the moment, I have translated more than 70% of the entire program:

The work continues, I am very glad that I have mastered a new direction for myself.

And now the problems:

1. I want to fully translate the help files. Please nudge me in a direction where I can learn how to compile a help file.

2. It is not yet clear to me what to do with program updates when new versions appear. What conflicts there will be.

P.S. I'm also researching a small sound card based on LukeZ :

Hi LukeZ! Good day and good luck in everything!

I can’t understand how I need in the setup program - to change the output, which channel will control the left/right engine, which lift cannon, which rotary tower.

As I understand it, this does not change in the program, only in mixing using the remote control?

So that the commander’s observation tower rotates - separately, from another remote control source.

Mixing channels is my headache.
It seems clear, but it does not work.

I figured out the triggers a bit, but not completely understood. I want to know all the features of the settings, all sections.

I am gradually translating Wiki Open Panzer into Russian, is it possible to add the Russian version Wiki Open Panzer on your official website?


I redid my turnigy 9x to work with FrSky XJT transmitters and changed the firmware to ER9X, and the processor to a more powerful and more internal memory.

Good heavens, that is quite the jig! You are definitely not ignoring the small details.

Thank you dear mastermind! When I started this my way, I looked at your main circuit board, and as they say in Russia they say: "I look in a book, and I don’t understand what!"

But the road will be mastered by the one who goes along it!

It will take me a while to redo my old turnigy 9x console and I will continue the story.

Today I have tried most of the hints and advantages of the board, but I already see the enormous potential of the work of the author Luke.

At the moment - I am studying settings and configuring settings, triggers and more.

The only thing I miss is changing the assignment of the outputs of the RC channels.

And I also soldered the board, one more, but already using a handheld printer for applying solder paste, and melting the paste, you can see it in the pictures below.

That looks super profesional! People would buy them for sure!

To be honest, for me it is more a learning experience, I do not plan to sell my work based on someone else's global work.
For me it’s a hobby, and a desire to popularize Luke’s work.

I made for applying paste through a stencil to printed circuit boards:

After the war ended, and when I resigned so as not to go crazy, I participated in many rehabilitation programs.

In Russia, many who have never served in the army like to say without thoroughly that there is no support for veterans.

They are liars. They do not like their country, they talk nasty things about it, it’s bad.

Confirmation of my words is my work, the path is bad and not professional, but those who did not want to participate in the programs - they died due to drunkenness.

Why am I writing this? I want to set an example. What kind of education would you not have - if you want to -> you can go this way.

This is actually not difficult. You just need to say to yourself: "I will go this way, I can."

A long time ago, in 2010, I took soldering courses and got an additional civilian profession, past the existing military knowledge and military rank - an electronic equipment installer.

And although the author thought that I soldered the first board using a stencil - he was mistaken.

All components on this board are sealed with a self-made soldering station based on the STM32 chip, bought on Aliexpress using a T12-BC1 cartridge

During the courses I learned to control my hands after a severe head injury so that my hands would not tremble.

But a little later, I will show a home-made printer for paste paste.

I bought components for 10 printed circuit boards.

In the picture below, you can see the result of the printed circuit board soldered by my hands, using my homemade soldering station:
