Open Panzer Help / TCB brake servo operation
« on: February 02, 2021, 12:59:30 PM »
Hi All,

I'm currently working my way through designing a high speed tracked vehicle, not so much weaponized, more like a Ripsaw toy version, approx. 1/6.
It will be powered by 2x 8s 56112 Rocket motors with ZTW beast pro sl 200A ESC's.

I know the braking function is included in the TCB by means of a motor break, but I was playing with the idea of doing the braking directly on the drive
shafts by means of 2 servo operated disc brakes.

Would the TCB be able to send the brake signal from reversing the throttle lever directly to the servo's and leave the motors untouched so to say?
Also, I'm eyeing 70 kg PWM servo's that require 500-2500us, would the TCB be able to generate that signal?

EDIT: could these servo's alternatively be operated directly from the receiver?

Hi Luke,

Would it be an idea to set up a centralized group purchase, finding buyers for 250 pieces sounds feasible? Alternatively, perhaps organizing a crowd funding set up or so? Collecting $15.000 amongst buyers and donations feels possible?

Perhaps this has all been tried in the past, but maybe an interest poll on a few forums might give a better feeling on this.

Hi All,

I'm completely new to tanking and the OP TCB, but as this seems the perfect board for the plans I have in mind for the build of a tracked vehicle, I'm currently looking to get one fabricated.

Just out of curiosity, given the current extreme scarcity, what would be an acceptable price level to buy a TCB? What would be the cost of just the components alone? Asking this since everybody's wallet has a different size and in case I do come across a willing manufacturer the price obviously goes down if larger volumes are ordered.

Anyway, I'll keep you updated once I get some quotes in.
