Hello, is there any way I can swap the controls around on the sticks? I'd much sooner have the hull movements be on the left stick and turret on the right.

Thank you.

Cheers for the quick no nonsense reply.

I'll have to get used to it then.

If you have a Taigen V2 or V3 Board then you have the option to use an aftermarket Transmitter and you can select either stick to control the Tanks movements.AND if you don't have a V2 or V3 in your Tank it is relatively cheap and readily available and an easy swap from the existing board.

and

And
IMEX in the USA
Can all supply the V3 board and the most suited Sound Module.

Mine has a V3 board. Cheers for that. Could you please advise on what particular controller I would need to buy?

Flysky fs-i6 is a great value and very easy to configure. Banggood do them with several receiver options.

A Flysky 6 channel digital programmable Transmitter and a matching Receiver would fill your requirements but do shop around as you can spend penny's or many pounds for something that will do the same job,
You don't need too many bells and whistles but a rotating or sliding potentiometer would be handy for controlling the sound remotely.

The very cheap Flysky model has two rotary pots, just the job.

Thank you so much for all the replies.

So I could just bind a Flysky to my Tiger?

No, you bind your Flysky transmitter to your Flysky receiver than connect the receiver to your tank control unit using the pack of leads supplied with your tank. The instruction manual covers this.

One important detail, If you do use an aftermarket Transmitter/Receiver with a Taigen V3 MFU the hull mg will not work,
Taigen are aware of the problem but they do not readily tell you about that. :thumbdown:
AND you might have to change your Smoker as well.

So yes, it's possible to swap your stick controls but is it worth the expense and bother when you'll need to modify every tank you own? Just so that you are aware, the latest Henglong ver 6.1 MFU allows you to switch the throttle from right to left stick by a simple button press and stick swipe! It's all changing and at quite a pace.

It is maybe a possibility to select an other stick mode on your transmitter.......give it a try and see if it works.. please see in the download section my upload: ibu3 setup part 1....

No, not if it's a Torro radio. However, if you feel competent to disassemble your transmitter you could rewire the left and right stick cables. That should work but your warranty would become void.

Once again, thank you all for taking the time to answer my question. I think I'll just make do and get used to the hull movements being on the right stick.

*****EDIT*****

Put left stick by accident so changed it to the right. If it was already on the left I wouldn't have had to ask this question :haha: :haha: :haha:
