Taigen V2 Control Board.

Talk about all other types of electronics here, such as batteries!

Postby jarndice » Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:00 am

I have just been looking at Taigens new V2 Control Board on "RCU" thanks to Eric at "IMEX-ERIC",
It looks to be very impressive and allows you amongst other things to use the Taigen Transmitter OR your own aftermarket 6 channel Transmitter,
There is a list of things it offers that were missing from the old board and does appear to bring it much closer to an after market board.
It comes complete with all the cables.
So my questions are When will it be available in Europe and How much?
Shaun.

Hallo Dave.
I am not sure,
In the interests of finding out more information I went to the
http://www.rctank.de
site and clicked on the "Taigen" section and they are selling what looks exactly like the V2 board from "Imex-Eric" including the cables the sound card and the uprated speaker to connect to an aftermarket receiver/transmitter,
It just does not say it works with an aftermarket transmitter receiver?
The Taigen Transmitter which is a separate buy is also the latest with the extra push button control on the top rail, the whole package is on sale for 90 Euros which after postage will be about a £100.
Shaun.

I would interpret this "You now also can use a normal remote with receiver" to mean you can use a 3rd party Tx & Rx. If you don't want the speaker you can save yourself 30 euros. https://www.rctank.de/Latest-Taigen-24-GHz-PCB-board-with-extra-sound-module-New-Sounds

YES and YES, :thumbup: That is exactly right,
So can you confirm that it plugs into an aftermarket 6 channel Receiver/Transmitter,
Shaun.

Shaun, if you go down this route, can you please take lots of photos and log your conversion? There was a lot of promise in the T90 board which ultimately left a lot of people dismayed. Maybe it is just lack of k owledge, but I can’t find anyone who did it successfully and can show others.

Do you mean the dual sound board? What was the issue?

I'm not going to invest in a board when HB can't get it to work:

viewtopic.php?p=222306#p222306

Which is one of the reasons why I proposed a sticky page for tank RC basics to describe what changes can be made to what and why hobby-grade RC is better, conversions, modifications, etc, but no-one was interested.

Me? I can plug and play, but until I can understand the fundamentals, I'm loath to just experiment.

The new board came with the new Panzer IV that I made a review of, a couple of months ago.

Its the same board as IMEX-Taigen just released.

Just bear in mind, that the new board dont have IR compatability with the old one (I posted videos of this as well). If you check the description of Rctank.de and heng-long-panzer.de they also state this.
Although.. Imex-Erik claims the exact opposite. I asked him to prove this, but so far, he havent given any.

A courier delivered my new Taigen Board complete with all the accessories including the Latest transmitter, speaker, and sound module as well as all the cables and an illustrated manual. :thumbup:
I had of course ordered it from Dave "FORGEBEAR" ----
www.forgebeartanks.com
I don't know if the price is a come and get me but at £78 including postage you would be suffering the signs of early dementia ordering from anywhere else,
I have ordered a lot of product from Dom at ----
www.rctank.de
but his price for this particular item including postage would take it into" CLARK" Board territory.
The legend that is "FORGEBEAR" lives on. :clap: :thumbup:

I should add that the Remote Volume Control (RVC) that I bought from ---
http://www.rctankelectronics.com
slots into the allotted 6 channel socket which makes this control board with its other 5 sockets with ready supplied cables ready to except an aftermarket 6 channel receiver/Transmitter, that's what I call versatile. :thumbup:

Forgebear, do you know if the boards you have are IR compatible with the older Taigen boards?

IMEX-Erik told me that the boards for the US had some bugs removed, so their board is kind of a V2.1 instead of the ones sold in Europe, wich is V2.0 (and dont work with other Taigen boards).

EDIT: Just heard from Dominique, that Taigen will make a new board available for European customers around Christmas, that will have IR compatability, with the older boards.
