T-72 TK-6.0/6.1

Feel free to discuss anything and everything to do with tanking here!

Just picked up my T-72 and thought I'd post about the New Heng Long.

Like the latest HL's this comes with all the parts on spruces and as there's been plenty of pics online I won't bore you with more. So I'll tell you whats new.

First of it comes with a small 7.4v (1800mAh) Li-ion battery and a 4.2v (800mA) usb charger (the instructions say it'll take 4 hours to charge).

As you can see from the pic the battery box is only big enough for the small battery and you're going to have to cut it up to fit a normal sized 7.2v battery in there. I ain't a fan of these new batteries so I'll be digging the dremel out.

It can fire BB's and be used for IR battles.

The biggest change is the electronics. It comes with its own instruction manual

Here's the wiring diagrams for now so you can see what it's got-

One thing I did notice is a 6v power out for wifi cameras which makes me wonder what HL have got planned for the future.

Thanks, Woz. The Circuit diags. will be very useful. :thumbup: I imagine the 6v camera connection could be for an FPV unit.

Took it for a spin and the new electronics are a huge improvement even over the 5.3 model I have.

Things like the lights can be turned on/off from the controller. It has two speed modes (High/Low) which limits the top speeds. Even in High speed mode the tank has good control at low speed. It also has Cannon stabilization and double current system (?) for future models

Anyway here's the controller instructions.

All the advances in tank electronics is fantastic. Seems like something better is coming out all the time.

It's certainly good to see more functionality being controlled from the transmitter. There should only be one switch on the vehicle and that's the power switch, preferably not beneath the hull or under a hatch that can't be easily opened. We could do with some cross brand standards though.

Thanks for posting the diagrams - very useful.

I would have thought HL would release more info on the new boards and their capabilities.

The IR transmitter is in the manlet next to the main gun-

The IR sensor plugs in under the loaders hatch and the sensor has a magnet holding in place on top of the turret-

Another new thing is the recoil. Now the recoil takes the slack out of the tracks, so it doesn't move back but seems to just rock back on the spot.

I have one too and was very impressed.

I need another one now for IR battles.

I tried battling with my Tamiya Leo but the Leo could hit the T72 from even behind a brick wall and the T72 could not hit the Leo at all. Probably 2 x HLs will work ok.

What other HL tanks have the v6 in them?

I just ordered a T90 with the 6.0 electronics, and I've seen them in the JagdPanther, the Sherman, the leopard, the Abrams, and the tiger. I think they've also got it in the Walker Bulldog now. I already did a video of the 6.0 in the JP, but I suppose I could do another one on the t-90 when it gets here. I can also set the two up and get a video of the battle action and how much range they've got and stuff like that. I know fssttanks a pretty comprehensive review at RCU, but I do not believe he included any video, and we all know the deal, if there's no video, it's not real! @)

If you go to eBay and search henglong 6.0, they will show you all the different tanks that have it in it.

I see that on the instructions for the 6.1 version of the board there is support for servo recoil. Does anyone know if the 6.1 board is available yet and where to get hold of one?

Ah thank you. Looks like you can order the new mako board for less than £30 so well worth a look.
I have an older mako 2018 board but the connections are all different so I might save it for another build and order the new tk6.0 mako

I've ordered lots of stuff from Kevin (RCTA) and it takes about two weeks to get to Detroit, should be less to the UK.
