  1. Hi Gary, Welcome to RC Tank World. Nice to see VicArmour here. Looking forward to some photos of your club meets.
  2. Welcome Kevin. Nice to have you onboard. I am looking forward to seeing some photos of your tanks.
  3. IMO - the Heng Long 6.0 board is comparable to the Taigen system these days and a little cheaper by my research - so my money would probs be on 6.0 There are better systems on the market than either of them, but then you start to pay a lot more as well (ie ElMod, IBU, Clark etc.).
  4. Hi Steve, welcome to the community. Looking forward to seeing some of your work. I have enjoyed a couple of Tammy King Tigers myself over the years - regret moving them on sometimes. Tamiya is certainly a favourite.
  5. Hi mate - welcome to the community. We are only small at this stage but growing. The Taigen metal Tiger I is a nice tank. I had one myself for a while. Feel free to post some pics in the Members Gallery
  6. Hi Wayne, Here is a product that i am sure will do that: You will need a 2.4ghz radio though - you won't be able to use your HL radio http://rctanksaustralia.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=30 Just drop them a line first to make sure they have the stock and it will do what you want.
  7. Android for me. I have used and like iOS and use a Mac regularly - but i prefer Android on my phones.
  8. Yeah it does look good. Someones got some footage on YT of the tank at Nuremberg. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca6JMva1bIc&feature=youtu.be

  10. Hi everyone. At RC Tank World, we take user account security very seriously. Even though - due to the nature of this particular forum, there is no sensitive data that we ask for or store. I wanted to talk about 2 of the security features of RC Tank World that you may not be aware of, that will ensure your account is never compromised. 2 Factor Authentication Recently Logged-In Devices 2 Factor Authentication If you are not familiar with 2 factor authentication, it is basically another security step that ensures if someone ever gets your password then you have another way to protect your account. You can access this feature from the 'Account Settings' option in the user dropdown menu top right of the page. Then click on 'Account Security', and follow the instructions on screen. You will need to download the free Google Authenticator app from your app store to use this feature. Once it is set up, you will be sent a one time authentication code to your device and you will need to enter that code to access the forum. Recently Logged-In Devices This is a great tool for seeing a history of what devices have accessed your account. To access this feature go to 'Account Settings from the user dropdown box in the top right of the page. Select 'Recently Used Devices' from the side menu and presto - a complete list of all the devices that have been used to access your account. From here you can sign out of any device and even disable the Auto Login feature. If you have any questions about these features, please do not hesitate to contact the staff for help. Thanks for reading and happy tanking! RC Tank World Team
  11. So here's some news that has been doing the rounds on FB. This pic is from the TamiyaBlog site and shows the latest 1/16 RC Tank Full Option kit release from Tamiya - the M551 Sheridan - kit number 56043 As usual there will be a ton more pics after the 2019 Nuremberg Toy Fair in early FEB. Thoughts???
  12. Morning everyone. Just wanted to post a quick update to let you all know that the Club section is now online. The Clubs area is very similar to Facebook Groups and offers clubs around the world a place that they can call there own. Threads and posts created in your group are not seen in the main forum and the club has control over the privacy and who can join. Head on over now to check it out. http://www.rctankworld.com/main/index.php?/clubs/
  13. Before starting your new build thread in here - consider posting it in Blog section instead. Blogs are a great alternative to give the author greater control over their build. All comments posted in a Blog appear at the end of a blog entry. This keeps your build organised and makes it easier for visitors and members to follow your build. The diagram below explains this a little better.
  14. This is another answer. The answer with the most votes will always have a tick inside a green circle next to the answer.
  15. I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the RC Tank World community. The idea behind this site and its community, is to provide radio controlled tank and military vehicle enthusiasts with a place to share the hobby with each other in a fun and friendly environment. Here is a brief overview of the different areas of this site. Membership: Being a member of this friendly community allows you to participate in the fun and share your story in this hobby. Whether it's your latest build, or just some pics showing off your new purchase you can post it all here with us. You will find some refreshing features in our forum like: Enhanced member security like 2 Factor Authentication and Device Login History etc. Follow blogs and forum threads - stay up to date with new posts for your favorite content. Forum: This is our modern style forum with all the modern features you may find on a social network (without the bad stuff ). As we get more content in the forum, we will add sub-forums to organise it a little to make browsing or finding something easier. Blogs: A great alternative for sharing your build with the community. With a blog, you have greater control over sharing your build. All comments are placed at the bottom of a post so members can view your build as it was intended and not interrupted with comments as can be the case in a forum thread. Archive: This is our download section. Manuals, colour charts, reference material and much more can be obtained from the Library section. This avoids scrolling through pages of threads and posts to find the info you need. If something is posted in the forum that we think would be better suited to the Archives, we will move it there. This section is operational now - however still under construction, so stay tuned for more content Clubs/Groups: This is our version of the groups feature on Facebook. Groups allow members to create little communities of particular interest that are seperate from the main forum. Great for RC Tank clubs to have their own separate area. Much like Facebook Groups - Group/Club owners can make the club public or private and share information as they see fit. We have a lot more planned and in the works already for this community, and we would love you to come on board for the ride. Stay tuned for updates. Thanks for stopping by and we hope you stick around.
  16. Just a quick poll to see how addictive this hobby is.
  17. Welcome Wayne - great to have you onboard. Looking forward to seeing these tanks. If you need help with posting images, just ask away
  18. Tamiya have discontinued the 1/16 Jagdpanther kit. https://www.tamiyausa.com/items/radio-control-kits-30/1-16-radio-control-tank-series-33000/rc-german-jagdpanther-56024 Very sad as the JP was a great tank to run around. Snap one up now if ya can. Original link is now dead in the water: Here is the link to the discontinued kit: https://www.tamiyausa.com/shop/116-tank/rc-german-jagdpanther/
  19. Another discontinued Tamiya 1/16 kit. The 'Bovington 131' Tiger I kit. Although - this one was always advertised as 'Limited Edition'. https://www.tamiyausa.com/items/radio-control-kits-30/1-16-radio-control-tank-series-33000/rc-tiger-i-early-production-84273
  20. Looks like Taigen are releasing their own version of the JS-2 and Leopard 2A6. Here is the link taken from RCU. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/rc-tanks-369/11643908-javascript-2-taigen-release-2018-a.html
  21. Version 1.0.0


    Manual for the Tamiya Battle System used on Tamiya's 1/16 RC Tank range
  22. Version 1.0.0


    Manual for the 1977 Kit From Tamiya
  23. Firstly, i decided to build a new lower hull from my parts collection. Nothing really exciting here, just your standard Tamiya lower hull build from the reissue static Leopard/Gepard kits. In that last pic you can see the gearbox adapter plate. The old gearbox will not be going into this new hull. I have used a Tamiya King Tiger gearbox with the adapter plate. I will be re-using the road wheels from the original lower hull. The rubber has degraded severely though so fresh rubber all round.
  24. Hi guys, Well this little project has been on my ‘to-do’ list for a while now and i have finally found the motivation to get stuck into it This Gepard previously belonged to an old customer of mine that sadly passed away at the end of last year. I hope to restore it to its former glory and give it the full RC treatment (not just forward reverse - with no sound). Here is the Geppy before i got stuck into it. i also have a second Geppy that i may use for parts if needed (hopefully not) ….and the original internals including older gearbox.
