Very nice except why the electrical whine before the main gun fires ?

Thanks for sharing Mr Lo_Thar :thumbup:

Sounds like the bb mechanism. And if you watch part 1 you can see and read that it has one :/

So, why does the gun recoil at a slower speed than it returns?

And as for that awful rocking, I've never seen a more needy case of suspension "clocking" or rather, beefing up.
Mind you, it may be that the track is overly tight to exaggerate the rocking. But still, for the expected cost, you'd think they'd want to make it run less toy like.

Edit; what is clever, they fitted the slip ring to the back of the bb unit, making it more central.

Smoking barrel? I think that is a first on any standard system?

That has some pretty cool new features. The new smoke system looks interesting.

They are bolt on upgrades to go with the ver 6.0 / 6.1 mfu. Not much sign of them in the UK yet but available on eBay from China so will be here very soon. Andrew at Haya has a few examples. I reckon Dave at Forgebear could be persuaded to get them in - hard to turn a blind eye to these bits!

Definitely on the right track... :)

Lots of impressive new features, including the gunsmoke but-for me, especially- the 360 deg turret performance. :thumbup: Nice.
Heng Long are becoming (and who would have thought it five years ago)- a kickass (maybe even kick-Asp) company. :D

I have the metal chassis, but I bought it separately from the tank as an ad-on. It is quite nice, but also quite expensive. I'm going to use the gearboxes in a different tank and use the DKLM RC gear boxes with 540 motors on them in their place. I posted in depth pics of the metal hull over at RC Universe: ... -hull.html
