Anybody seen this Servo-Signal converter before?

Discuss the good old Heng Long electronics here, whether its mods on them or anything else, it goes here!

Hello guys,

I have posted here a few times, looking for a way to get a gun recoil into my Stug 3 without braking the bank to much (I have got a Taigen V3 board and dont want to have to get a new).
Recently I found this converter board on a german website:

https://www.rctank.de/Taigen-Servo-und- ... ul-Platine

Problem is: There is literally no information on how it works, the description says (translated as good as I could :shifty:):

"This board allows the control of 2 servos (Recoil and Raise/Lower), aswell as adding a barrel smoker using a Taigen V3 board."

Sounds exactly like what i would want, but the lack of information makes me hesitate. Has any of you seen this before and knows if / how it works?


Thanks for any help :thumbup:

Theres an old thread about taigen barrel smoke with videos looks a bit bad compared to the heng long 6.1

Dominic is the dealer at rctank.de and he is ultra helpful,
E-Mail him and ask him what it is you want to know and as to translation why not use "GOOGLE Translate" ?

This would be perfect for using Taigen board in Mato tanks where there is two servos in the turret.

Good afternoon,
The Taigen Jagdpanther IR upper that Forgebear provided for a current Build has a Smoker and uses two servos. I noticed some extra Daughter boards but will have to take another look at it to see if any serious secondary boards are present.
regards,
Painless

Alright, guess I will send him an E-Mail and post here what I find out about this thing. Thanks a lot!

About the translation: I dont trust Google translate and thought my translation was good enough. Just noticed tho, that the website has an english version aswell :D

I speak a few languages care of a bounty that the army paid for each one I learned :haha:
Because like you I was unsure how accurate Google's translation service was I did some comparisons,
I have to say that it was correct each time although very precise, not at all "As Spoke" but I would trust it with languages with which I am unfamiliar.

Hello, are you talking about this? so I confirm that it is designed to operate a servo on a V3 plate or other, it is to be supplied with 5 volts plus and minus on the small white socket and the signal is done by tapping a plus 5 volts on the BB recoil switch
attached some photos sent by Dominique RCtank.de
bottom view of the plate

Top view, the 1 in yellow plus/minus 5 volts power supply, the 2, plus 5 volts, signal picked up on the Tir BB switchd

a friend operated recoil Sherman Tamiya, with this module
hoping to have been quite precise in my explanation, despite Gogle translate :{

I'm talking about this system, and not the one with the smoke module. As in the link!!!!

Alright, so I found some information on this board and how it works:

Like PainlessWolf has said, Forgebear sells a Jagdpantehr Hull wich uses this module. From the pictures on the website you can somewhat see the wiring:

Taigen_Servo_Wiring.jpeg

https://www.forgebeartanks.com/store/p1 ... _Deck.html

As you can see in these pictures and also from what Dominic of rctank.de has told me, you will need an extra board to connect the 5 pin cable to, wich is this one:

https://www.rctank.de/ElMod-FX-Taigen-A ... rdmechanik

From this connector board a 10 pin cable leads to the Taigen V3 Board. Right on the edge of the picture above you can see, that this 10 pin wire splits up, presumably into a 8 pin and a 2 pin. Unfortunately I couldnt find this wire anywhere, so this whole idea of using this system seems doomed.

It is also a lot more complicated than i hoped for, so I will probably have to give up and just save some money to get a board, that can control servos out of the box, or look into the option Jofaur86 has suggested.

Thanks anyways for all the help and maybe this thread will help someone who stumbles over this board and wonders what it is, but take my words with a grain of salt, as I am really not an expert on any of this ;)

I have just looked on several sites, and it seems that the Stug III only exists with a BB firing system (balls) I have never had a Stug? so if possible have a photo? that I can better understand what is possible to do :thumbup:
