And also Jim,

Nice new radio! I think it would probably confuse me even more than the QX7! And STOP shooting all the trout! Save some for seed! I'm sure the IL DNR would take a dim view of it. Love the "No Trespassing" sign in the background, that won't stop a determined Panzer Commander! Vorwarts!!!

Hell yes! Tigers take no prisoners. One shot into the creek and enough fish will float to the surface to feed a good portion of the 502nd. And if you’re sitting on German 88, a No Trespassing sign looses all it’s meaning. :haha:

Made my day, Jim. :clap: Today, I reached my biblical quotient of years, and had a few friends over for blether, and good single malt. Try watching your tank movie to this simply stunning piece of music by Martynov, (Theme from the amazing Italian film- 'The Great Beauty', 2016): Anyone in their 'golden years' should rent, or buy, this film.. Incidentally, your tiger is becoming something of a celebrity . :D
Long may it continue :thumbup:

Nice to see someone's tank outside in nature being used and enjoyed. But honestly seeing that water makes me nervous lol. Truly a nice spot to relax. I picked up a Elmod board about a year ago and played around briefly with trying to add sounds and control with a Flyski transmitter. Neat concept yet never quite got the hang of it so back into the parts bin it went.

Thanks for watching my fun little video! I spend a lot of time to add the best details that my skills allow and try to use the most awesome electronics that I can and try to paint it as realistically as possible according to my ability.
But it certainly is not a shelf queen in any way. I drive the living hell out of it on almost a daily basis. Actually I git a bit rough with it on rocks sometimes just to push her limits and so far no parts have been lost or broken. As soon as I got home I removed the upper hull and checked for moisture but found none. I left the top off for a while that evening just to ensure any hidden moisture could evaporate. Still runs like a Swiss watch! :thumbup:
I hate to hear that you aren't utilizing your Elmod board. What version is it? I would buy it from you if the price is right.

It's a Elmod Fusion Pro with a Bluetooth adapter and Tamiya apple base conversion.

Not sure if that Elmod is a version F, or not. Should be though as they have been out since 2017, I think? Also, updatable as always. I love the Bluetooth adapter. So nice to be able to change parameters while test driving it, much better than just having your tank up on a block with the tracks spinning. Upon looking closer at the picture it looks like a version E.

LordPanzer, I said the same thing about Jim and the water! With my luck, my Tiger would take a dive and never resurface! I agree that the Elmod board has a learning curve, actually anything with electronics or computers pretty much stumps me. The Elmod board is awesome if you want to have tons of realistic sounds and make your tank move as realistically as possible. Of course, if it wasn't for Rad and Jimster I would still be staring at it with a dull, glazed look in my eyes. Can't forget Thomas "The Man" at Elmod though either. He was great, responded very quickly even though he was technically on holiday, super support for a great item. It took me awhile to get it going, and to learn the ins and outs of the FrSky QX7S. I'd never go back to anything else now as both the board and radio have more capabilities than I'll ever know how to use. That being said; the more I learn about both, the more impressed I am and the more fun I have! I does take a bit though.

Regards,
Eric.
