Terminology

Ultrasonic ESC is the ESC block which switch FET at ultrasonic speed, make motor rotation extreme  smooth and quite. start voltage of ESC can also be adjusted for different type of motor.

 

Adjustable ESC start voltage: offset can be added to ESC input vs. output curve to meet the characteristic   of motor

 

EPM ( ESC/PWM module) is peripheral which can be switched to ESC or PWM mode, allows the user to drive brushed motor or servo motor, in ESC mode, ESC port is enabled, can be used to drive brushed motor, In PWM mode, PWM port is enabled to driver servo motor, sound effect stopped when servo motor reach end point, TK50 has 2 EPMs for gun elevation(EPM1) and turret rotation/gun traverses(EPM2),

Recoil Solenoid allows you to recreate MG/Auto cannon barrel recoil movement with Solenoid

 

V2 Smoker driver smoker fan/compressor speed is proportional to engine RPM and Load

 

V2  Mixer turning is achieved by reducing track speed and also increase opposite track speed to achieve smoother turning.

 

Adjustable Low Battery threshold cut off ESC output when battery voltage is lower than threshold, and threshold can be adjusted according to type and cells

 

Extend sound effect ( for E variant ) allows you to play 8 audio/music/voice

 

Momentum Effect to simulate inertia of tank hull movement

 

BEC stands for battery elimination circuit.This circuit powers the receiver thought channel cable, therefore no secondary battery source is required.

Installation Guide

Set Upper Hull Functions (CN9) Mode to match your tank hardware configuration (HL AirSoft, TAMIYA Recoil or MG recoil),

Disconnect RX-18 and plug cables to the same connector on TK board,

Set Sound Volume to middle

Install a switch cable (for example, HL Smoke Unit Switch Cable) to SW connector( Switch Cable Port)  as power switch.

 

Because HL tank already have power switch on battery cable path, so additional switch is not required, just to use a jumper to short pins in SW Cable port or connect a switch cable and keep it switched on.

 

When high current track motors are used, such as 400/480 motor, power switch on battery cable path will not be able to handle, connect a switch cable (for example, HL Smoke Unit Switch Cable) to this port as power switch.

Connect a recoil servo to J2(Optional),

Rewire Air-soft unit if you want to elevate and depress gun directly, see "HL Gun Elevation and AirSoft Correction" section

(Optional). wire a 2.2 ohm 1/2W (color code: red read gold gold) in-serial resistor to turret rotate, elevation and airsoft motor to limit the current to protect FETs in case motor stall  occured.

 

Connect channel cables to receiver according to RC mode( See picture "TK series connector and pin assignments" ) . if you are not sure what mode you RC system is, just swap CH2 and CH3 and try again.

 

TK40 board has BEC( Battery eliminate circuit), can power receiver through channel cables, no additional battery is needed for receiver

 

Set CH1, 2 and 3 trimmer on transmitter to center position, Set CH4 trimmer on transmitter to most left or right  position,

Connect power adaptor( See FAQ )

Switch on TK board and transmitter, you should hear turret traverse sound. if not, please contact us.

gently move CH4(Multi function control signal 2) trimmer to center till turret traverse is gone.

gently move CH2(Throttle ) trimmer up and down if you hear motor hum sound.

Cannon firing sound should be generated and recoil servo should moves when move CH3 stick to most top position, if not, gently move CH3(Multi function control signal 2 ) trimmer up and down till it work correctly.

You are all set

Disconnect power adaptor and connect battery( make sure that battery is fully charged).

FAQ

 

Q: My TK board can not  register a hit from Tamiya tank.

A: To check "Receive Tamiya IR code" setting. TK board  won't response Tamiay IR code when this setting is disabled.

 

Q: The airsoft motor does not run until after the gun fire sound has played and the reload sound has happened. I want the airsoft motor to run while the gun sound plays. I also planned to make recoil work with the airsoft…but when I fire the gun, the recoil servo operates in time to the sound…but has returned to the normal position when the airsoft motor operates.
A: Just need to set Main Gun Function Mode to AirSoft mode, then cannon sound, servo recoil and airsoft unit will be synchronized.

 

Q: I already set Main Gun Function Mode to HL AirSoft MODE, but AirSoft motor does not run when I give fire cannon command.

A:To correct airsoft unit wiring as HL Gun Elevation and AirSoft Correction section mentioned.

 

Q: Tank hull recoil movement direction is not correct, moves forward and then backward while firing main gun.
A: Just need to swap motor cables, CN6 to Motor Right, CN7 to Motor Left, and turn on servo reverser function on throttle channel from radio transmitter.

 

Q: All function runs but just no sound!!

A: This can be the common issue on HL Volume Control board, just to short outer pins of CN4 with tweezers to verify it. if  sound comes out when doing this, the HL volume control board is broken.

Q: Do I need noise filtering capacitor on motor

A: Yes, it's needed to prevent back EMF to interference TK20 board. All HL stock tank already have it on motors

This type of capacitor is not good, DO NOT USE!

 

Q: What's the IR battle range of TK20

Q:Tank moves backward faster than forwards and does not turn. It only turn if firstly turn steering stick and secondly throttle stick.

A: To turn off mixer on transmitter and test again.

 

Q: Can get motor sounds, cannon sounds, turret sounds, but no motion on either drive motors or turret rotation gearbox
