IBU3

Postby atcttge » Fri Aug 26, 2016 4:49 am

I just noticed that I asked about the GSU in April and July, with a month between. It's August now and next week it'll be September. I hope you're still patient with me when I ask "GSU...?"

:D

The GSU will be my reason to pull the trigger for the IBU3 hehehehe

I'm told I should have a version to test in September, so looking forward to it.

Hi Tankers ....

Yes, i know, we're late than planned for the TBSU but we are now fine tuning the servo control for both traverse and barrel.
Furthermore we are trying to give users the ability to use the stock HL traverse DC gearbox (and avoid the mod on the upper hull), quite tricky to do.
So far not sure that this last feature will be available or not since the stock DC gearbox is slow (and some slower than others) and the result is quite not realistic.
For the barrel control definitely servo control was choosen, here again the stock DC gearbox is not fast enough.
Tankbear will have a sample a.s.a.p.

Cheers
Ivano

If there's an IBU3 with GSU kit, and the GSU kit has *everything* like the servos etc (including recoil), I am *so* getting that even if it means harvesting the kidneys of my coworkers the third time around.

Kit won't include servos, as many people will of already converted the tank to servos before getting the GSU so seems unnecessary. We sell servos so can provide with GSU.

Originally it was going to work with the heng long stock motor traverse and elevation gearboxes as well as servos to give maximum usage to users of standard tanks. This choice has caused issues because the stock traverse is too slow and cannot keep up with the speed of a turning tank, so that's where the project is at the moment I understand.

Thanks for the update. I hope they can release it soon even if it means foregoing with compatibility with HL stock traverse.

Last I heard was still some technical issues with some tank setups. So trying to sort them out and hopefully will work with every bodies tanks and various setup combinations.

I'm hoping it comes in a kit complete with servos etc so that everything is "standardized."

Reference to the GSU I emailed them in January and this was the email I got back

"Hello Darren,



GSU is currently under testing and is planned to be available during this year.

The module will be directly connected to IBU2 Ultimate expansion port.

We’re working to make it more friendly and affordable as possible.

The early version designed for IBU3 worked very well but the calibration (needed to fine tune on tank) was a little tricky and definitely not for basic users.

Also traverse and barrel elevation must be modified for servo use since the (poor) HL/Taigen stock gearboxes aren’t fast enough.



Best Regards

IBU Staff "

But will it also work on the IBU3?

From your answer and Tom, it seems the IBU3 is a dead end...

I've had confirmation that the upcoming GSU will also work on a IBU3, it just requires a pinout swap around. :thumbup:

Wondering if anyone has come across this error:

IBU3 Error.PNG
IBU3 Error.PNG (2.78 KiB) Viewed 304 times


I can connect to the IBU3 over USB, configure all the settings and save to the board OK (including sounds) but every time the board goes into DFU mode (slow blinking LED after re-applying power) the PC does not see the serial port to complete the flash sequence.

It's on v11 and want to go up to v17 - using the IBU configurator 1004...

Have contacted Ian (Tankbear) and he thinks it’s trying to go from v0.11 direct to v0.17 - not so sure myself, so if anyone has any other bright ideas...
