Open Panzer Help / Re: Heng Long 7.0+ compatability

Hi Mitch, I have not tested the Heng Long 7+ boards, but it is my understanding all HL boards from 6 and later use the Tamiya IR protocol, so yes it should be compatible with the TCB and with any other board that uses Tamiya, which today is basically all of them.

The Heng Long IR receiver you linked to should work with the TCB, again I have not tested it but all these receivers are generally about the same thing.

However you will need to make sure that you connect the pins in the correct order. On the TCB the Apple connector is 5 pins but the Heng Long receiver is only 3 pins because it does not have a notification LED built in. If you look on the bottom of the TCB board you will see the three pins that you need for the receiver. The pin order is not the same as the Heng Long plug, which uses + - S (connection CN16 on the TK7), but on the TCB the order is + S -.

So you will have to re-arrange the connections, but otherwise I'm guessing it will work.

Open Panzer Help / Heng Long 7.0+ compatability
« Last post by uglyduck 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 (https://openpanzer.org/forum/index.php?topic=262.0) 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?  https://www.ebay.com/itm/174454940006?hash=item289e532166:g:WHEAAOSwsKRekYQK&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAA4HCLEhkOLxJKTu8InC17UPrH4JQhJycvKymUgHjTRA5YujC%2BEojpdcOZfprLeqmu20SmrlRMXYbc8SMRWo6s0hYQUqPa1YHeSAUoHiyWnlwcDLMTyn4kaka3wF8d7rEDtSp6Co65JK%2FacJUyX%2B3WJIrJwAMDJtp0Y3iKNyvdcHfJADdOa89VRc0vYUFehv24HEVXBz9gwVfo%2B38WHYrRw42clYSIjwms2NGYgfIYiTsCul0lZWlrSOZedcM8rfKlekM8K2IRCQlKC2YJNVbeNSxeeDvgZIuXsPA9eIw%2FZg46%7Ctkp%3ABFBMntuP6plh

Open Source Sound Dev / Re: The cheapest sound is for OPEN PANZER
« Last post by Phantom on November 09, 2022, 04:45:32 AM »
Hi Phantom, welcome to the forum. Unfortunately the MP3 player you describe is not compatible with the Open Panzer TCB.

The guys on the Russian forum built their own control board which uses that MP3 player. Their project is not the same as the Open Panzer project, and their code is not the same as ours. In other words, if you want to use that MP3 player you will have to use the Russian control board, and will need to contact them about it.

The only sound cards that are compatible with the TCB are the Benedini (Mini and Micro), the Taigen sound cards, and the Open Panzer Sound Card.

Thanks you LukeZ

Open Source Sound Dev / The cheapest sound is for OPEN PANZER

Hello) Everyone! This is my first time on the forum, Thanks for such a project, everything is just gorgeous) I want to repeat - my hyun long. Please tell me how to connect the DFPlayer mini MP3 (which is now sold in China) to the OPENPANZER board (Arduino Mega 2560 or, if possible, Arduino nano, but it seems to me that there are not enough pins for nano).
PS What Mplayer Mini MP3 gives out is enough for me!

I want to implement sounds like in this project specified in this link - I need a DFPlayer connection diagram to an open tank board on an Arduino 2560 mega specified by the link:  http://rctank.club/showthread.php?1460-%CF%EB%E0%F2%E0-%F3%EF%F0%E0%E2%EB%E5%ED%E8%FF-%ED%E0-Arduino/page2
On the first page there is a mention that this is a fee: The source code of the sketch can be viewed here: https://github.com/OpenPanzerProject/TCB

P.S. Sorry for my Russian!  Russian translator accidentally translated into Russian, I stayed with one Russian forum to understand what was written, I translated and then not much was not clear from Portuguese..translates into English is not clear.

That is a clever solution! I'm glad you succeeded, even if you had to do something unorthodox.  ;)

What software are you running on your TX16? If it is OpenTx, here is a video on how to set the failsafe values. I don't know if that is your problem or not, but you could experiment with it anyway. You will want to set the failsafe position of Aux Channel 6 to position 1, so that if the connection between the receiver and transmitter is lost, or hasn't been established yet, the cannon will not fire.

 Hi Luke! I get connected to OpenTX developers for TX16S and tried several tips. I think the new firmware on radio is messed up something or makes a "preflight" test.

Anyway I managed to solve the problem with raising the offset of the cannon fire channel (it is a toggle switch) to the middle (like a middle position of a 3pos switch) and no cannon fire on startup but when I activate it it works fine.

Rongyos

Hi Rongyos. I looked at your snoop file. You're right, it is definitely something that is happening at the very beginning, when the TCB first makes a connection with the receiver. There are several functions it runs right away (MG Stop, turn the light off, set the volume) and these are what we would expect to see as it starts reading the channel values and applying the functions that you have set for your switches based on the position they are in (it is easy to see that you have your MG and light switches in the middle position). So everything is working as we would expect, but it also fires the cannon which means that it believes your cannon switch is in position 2.

I know you believe the cannon switch is in position 1. You can try this experiment: instead of starting the TCB with the cannon switch in the "off" position, put it in the "on" position and start the TCB. If the cannon doesn't fire, then it was just a confusion that can be fixed by reversing the channel.

If it fires no matter what, then it might be as you say some kind of failsafe setting. Maybe the TCB boots up faster than your receiver can create a connection to the transmitter. If that is the case, the first signals the TCB reads from the receiver are actually failsafe positions rather than the actual positions of the switches on your transmitter.

You could see what happens if you press the "Reset" button on the TCB. This will cause the TCB to reboot, but it will not interrupt power to the receiver. So your receiver will already be connected to the transmitter when the TCB starts. Does the cannon behave correctly then?

What software are you running on your TX16? If it is OpenTx, here is a video on how to set the failsafe values. I don't know if that is your problem or not, but you could experiment with it anyway. You will want to set the failsafe position of Aux Channel 6 to position 1, so that if the connection between the receiver and transmitter is lost, or hasn't been established yet, the cannon will not fire.

Hi Rongyos, if I understand you correctly, the cannon fire happens when the TCB first starts. And this involves not only the sound, but also the recoil servo. If that is the case, then we can eliminate the sound card as being related to your problem, it is clear that the TCB is the one firing the cannon.

Yes, thats the case. Maybe posts related to this issue should be replaced somewhere else, sorry. I didnt put servo on the first try and only heard the cannon fire so I assumed that the sound card is failed somehow.

Plug your TCB in to your computer with a USB cable and connect to it with Snoop (on the Firmware tab of OP Config) to see what is happening. Does the TCB report a "Cannon Fire" event when it first starts?

snoop results attached (on the second try I put the cannon fire switch to channel 16 on radio and there is no cannon fire function triggered anymore) please search for #####First try  and #####Second try keywords

I wonder if maybe you have Aux Channel 6 in Position 2 when the TCB starts?

I see you have Aux Channel 6 set to "Reversed" in OP Config. Maybe un-reverse it in OP Config, and reverse it in your radio's settings. You can also try changing the cannon fire function to a different aux channel.

I can't say what the problem is, but I am confident it is not an error in the code. Somehow the TCB thinks that the cannon should be fired, which implies that your radio is telling it to. You will have to do some more troubleshooting yourself. Even if you don't solve the problem right away, hopefully you can discover a piece of information that will help us solve the problem.

Yes this might be my radio. I recently updated the firmware on this because with the old firmware I could not manage to bind new sbus receiver I use for another TCB. I tried several receivers (Original is  Flysky i8a i-bus, others Radiomaster R191 Sbus and Radiomaster R168 sbus) whit get the same results. Its not related to radio protocols, I think its some failsafe or precheck stuff in the radio but I cannot figure it out myself (disabled preflight and so on but nothing helps). Regarding reverse / not reverse channel I could set this and except this startup issue everything works fine.

Regards
Rongyos

EDIT: I reload the min/max values and stick centers, not helping
