 Install Guide

Remove RX-18 or 2.4G control board from HL tank

Connect CH1~CH8 channel cables to receiver according to control mode.

Plug Left and Right track motor to CN6 and CN7 on TK60, or solder motor wire to CN6-A, CN6-B, CN7-A and CN7-B if track motor is 540/550.

(Optional) Plug battle unit base to CN2 Infrared Port

(Optional) Plug Gun flasher and  recoil unit switch to CN3 Gun Flash Port

(Optional) Plug speaker to CN5 Speaker Port

Plug volume control unit to CN4

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

Set Main Gun Function Mode to match your tank hardware configuration (HL AirSoft, HL or TAMIYA Recoil),

Plug 8-P upper hull functions cable to CN9,

Plug smoker unit and switch to CN10 and CN11,

(Optional) separate smoker heater wire from smoker unit and connect to CN12

(Optional) plug IR011 to J1

(Optional) plug recoil servo to J2

(Optional) plug LED flasher to  servo to J3

(Optional) plug elevation servo to J4

(Optional) plug gun swing servo servo to J5

(Optional) plug rotate light unit to L1, L2 and L3 connector

(Optional) plug LED flasher to  L5

(Optional) plug LED flasher to  L7 and L8 as Right and left blinker

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

 

HL tank already have power switch on battery cable path, so additional switch is not required, 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.

TK60 board has 0.8A BEC( Battery eliminate circuit), can power receiver through channel cables, no additional battery is needed for receiver

 

Set trimmers on transmitter to center position,

Connect TK60 to battery or power adaptor( See FAQ )

Switch on TK60 board and transmitter,

Send different commands( see control mode diagram) to test each function, if board not functions accordingly, adjust trimmer on transmitter.

Done!

 

 S.BUS setup ( FlySky i6S )

Transmitter:

1.Turn on Transmitter i6s and enter setting function, go to system->output mode, then set Serial to S.BUS

2. Enter aux channel setup, set channel 5 to SwA, channel 6 to SwD, channel 7 to SwB, channel 8 to SwC, channel 9 to VrA and channel 10 to VrB

 

3. Go to system->stick mode, then set to M1 mode

 

Receiver and control board:

1. Plug connector with S.BUS label on it into S.BUS port on receiver.

 

 HL Gun Elevation and AirSoft Correction

In HL original design, gun Elevation and AirSoft sharing same driving H/W, so the gun elevation can only be controlled  in one direction, if you missed the angle you want, you will need to wait a full cycle of gun elevation, to correct this problem, we add dedicate AirSoft control h/w to TK20 board. the following shows you how to correct HL tank and get two direction elevation.

 

The picture below is original wiring in HL tank:

Modify it as the following:

Green box in the diagram above represent the small PCB in tank, small  red, black, blue ... orange in it represent the wire color.

 

 

1. Disconnect red wire between safety switch and gun barrel elevation unit.

2. Change original 3P connector to 4P type, add additional wire from safety switch to 4P connector,

3. Add 4P connector HUL-8P PCB connector

4. AirSoft unit is now controlled by red-black pair, gun barrel unit is controlled by red-white pair. and you can connect 8P connector to CN9 on TK-18/20 with original cable.

 

Here is a video of airsoft setup for Taigen Tank

 

 HL Tail Light Correction

Tail Light in HL tank is wire to MG light, so the Tail Light flashes when MG firing, this is very funny to us, to correct this problem and make tail light to be controlled with Headlight, please refer to the picture below and rewire it.

1. Remove 2 pin plug from PCB, twist angled pins to opposite side,

2. Connect Tail Light LED + pin(  Red wire of Tail Light cable) to CN9.3 pin( Yellow wire )

3. Connect a 200 Ohm resistor between 2-P connector pin and CN9.2 pin(Green), a SMD type resistor is used in this example to save space.

Gun Barrel Stabilizer(GBS) overview and installation

GBS is an optional module of TK60. When GBS is turned on, it detects the tank movement and compensate gun rotation and elevation to stabilize the gun automatically. When GBS is turned on, operator can still change gun elevation and direction under GBS compensation, GBS have the following features:

 

- 2-axis gun stabilization in turret rotation and gun elevation.

- Fully programmable gun elevation real angle calculator allows GBS to work with different elevation setup,

- Fully programmable turret motor controller allows GBS to work with different motor/gear box setup,

- Engine deck detection, gun raise automatically when gun travels above engine deck,

- Auto reload position, Gun barrel goes to to reload position after fire, and return to last position when reload when reload time expired,

- Adjustable Engine deck level,

- Adjustable auto reload position,

- Gun barrel momentum effect,

- GBS unit dimensions: 20 x 16 x 3mm.

 

Servo for GBS -

-Control System: +Pulse Width Control 1520usec Neutral
-Required Pulse: 3-5 Volt Peak to Peak Square Wave
-Operating Voltage: 4.8-6.0 Volts

-Operating Angle: 45 Deg. one side

Power on GBS calibration - When power on TK60G2, GBS starts a reset process and must be kept stationary.

 

Head Light LED is turned ON during GBS calibration and you must not to move the tank during calibration. The GBS are very sensitive and you should not touch or vibrate the GBS during power on reset. The process will take around 2 seconds. Head Light LED will be turned off when calibration completed.

An in-series 200-ohm resistor is needed for GBS LED

  

Mounting of GBS - The GBS unit must be mounted securely and horizontally on the turret, here is an example, first to use Tamiya 5mm square beam, cut into 5~6mm in length, make 1.6mm hole, then glue to turret floor by cement

Bolt GBS unit with the screws came with GBS unit, and plug connector to J6 port on TK60G2, Length of GBS cable can not exceed 80mm or TK60G2 may miss reading GBS.

For accurate motion detection, it must be kept within 5 degree with turret base plate. mounting directions is as shown in following picture. Servo for elevation is Futaba S3003 in this setup.

Recommended GBS mounting position for Leopard 2

 

Turning GBS on/off - GBS can be turned on/off by Gun Barrel Stabilizer on/off  commanded, you can also hear click sound when turn it on and off

 

Adjusting gun elevation angle - The gun elevation V gain setting is used to adjust the amount of gun elevation servo angle to meet different mechanical setup. adjusting procedures are

 

-First to put TK60G board in IR programming mode.

-Turn GBS on and moves the gun barrel to horizontal position.

-Tilt the tank for 15-20 degree.

-Use IR configure remote to adjust servo gain value until the gun is horizontal again.

-Power off TK60G board, remove jumper and turn power again to leave IR programming mode.

 

Adjusting gun elevation angle calculator gains - The angle calculator's fast gain and slow gain settings are used to adjust the angle calculation, adjusting procedures are

 

-First to put TK60G2 board in IR programming mode.

-Turn GBS  on and moves the gun barrel to horizontal position.

-Tilt the tank for 10-20 degree.

-Rotate turret in various speed ( from low to full speed), if elevation speed is too slow, increase slow gain a bit, otherwise, reduce slow gain,

-rotate turret to 12 o'clock position, tilt the tank hull about 15-20 degree in various speed, if elevation speed is too slow, can not keep up tank hull tilt speed, increase fast gain a bit, if elevation moves faster the hull tile speed and over the position it should be (overshoot), decrease fast gain a bit

-Power off TK60G2 board, remove jumper and turn power again to leave IR programming mode.

 

Adjusting turret rotation motor control gains -Turret rotation motor P , I  and D gain are used to meet the characteristic of turret rotate motor and design on your tank. adjusting procedures are as the following.

 

-First to put TK60G2 board in IR programming mode.

-Turn GSU on

-Rotate tank hull from stationary to low speed, if turret motor does not start as quick as tank hull rotation, increase I gain a bit, if turret motor runs too fast (overshoot) , decrease I gain a bit.

-Rotate tank hull in various speed( low, middle and full) , if turret rotation speed is too slow, can't keep up hull rotation, increase P gain, otherwise, reduce speed gain,

-Stop tank hull rotation from various speed, if turret stops too early, decrease D gain, if turret stops too late increase D gain.

 

 Tank Personalization( Patent Pending)

Settings of TK series board can be changed by Configuration IR REMOTE as IR command transmitter, and TAMIYA battle unit(TBU),  Heng-Leog battle unit(HBU), or our programming line as IR command receiver.

 

Steps to change settings:

STEP 1: Turn power off, Turn power off, Turn power off,

STEP 2: Plug programming line/TBU/HBU through TBU/HBU base into CN2 Infrared Port ,  

STEP 2: Install a jumper to J2 as shown below, Turn power on,

STEP 4:Refer to function table listed below, point Configuration IR REMOTE to TBU/HBU/Programming line receiver, and press the button of setting that you want to change,  "*" sign in function table means the default setting that is programmed in factory

STEP 5: Indicator on TBU/HBU flashes according to new setting value.

STEP 6: turn power off, remove jumper on J2, then turn power on and TK board runs with new settings.

 FAQs

Q: elevation in wrong direction, how to change?

A: Change "Gun elevation servo direction" setting by press " Teletext ON(0x3F)" or "" key on IR Configuration Remote to select

 

Q:How to use Motor Additional Pad to connect 540/550 motor?

A: Solder thicker wire to Additional Pad to reduce resistance

   

Q: My Tk60 can not  register a hit from Tamiya tank.

A: To check "Receive Tamiya IR code" setting. TK60 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: Airsoft unit fires continuously and have no cannon sound.

A: When main Main Gun Function Mode is configured to AirSoft Mode, TK60 start to drive AirSoft motor (thought CN9 3rd &4th pin) when fire cannon command is received. when Airsoft just fired, Airsoft switch is closed , Tk60 knows it thought  CN3  Pin4 & Pin5. and then stop to drive Airsoft Motor and start to generate cannon. So in order to make it works properly,  AirSoft motor need to be connected to CN9 pin3 and pin4. AirSoft switch connector to CN3  Pin4 & Pin5.

You can simply test it by a tweezers, to short and release it will stop AirSoft motor.

 

Q: How to avoid damage that caused by short circuit to the board?
A: Damage can be prevented by using a current limited power adaptor as power source, first to find a ~6V, 400mAh power adaptor, 1K 1/4W ohm resistor, LED and a motor cable(from HL cable Set)

then connect + wire(with white strip) from adaptor to red wire of HL cable, - wire to black wire of HL cable, adn wire resistor and LED as the following to act as indicator.

Each time, when you did some modification on circuit or after installation, use this as power source fist. plug connect each by each, and LED will be dimmed immediately if any shortage in circuitry and not thing on TK board will be damaged because power can only supply low & limited current.

 

The board might be act very strange when it's power by this, such as motor can not moves will, cannon fired unexpectedly when turret rotation sound comes up, these are quite normal because current is not enough.

 

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: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

A:  Check if battery voltage is too low, auto cutoff function cuts motor off when battery voltage is too low.

 

Q: What is Mixer

A: A piece of software that converts Rudder and Throttle control signal to Left and Right track speed signal. All TK board has mixer on it, mixer function on RC transmitter need to be turned off.

 

Q: What is Safety shutoff:

A: Controller cuts motor off and waits signal come back.

 

Q: What is Auto cutoff:

A: The motor cutoff will occurred when battery input drops below minimum supply voltage of controller.

 

Q: Which RC system can works with TK board:

A: Basically, TK can work with all kind of aftermarket RC system as long as it's PWM system, here is a table list most popular one.

Q: Audio Amp thermal protection:

A: that turns off device when junction temperature over 150 degree C to prevent damage

 

Q: Is it possible to make additional settings using existing IR signals for example to make HL IR signal and 9 hits can take, originally 5 hits?  

A: yes,  IR code to receive, IR code to transmit, preset & battle data can be set independently.

 

Q: Is it possible to set setting with other device (not SONY IR code remote)?

A: Only Sony IR code remote can be used, you can also have universal remote and configure it to SONY mode.

 

Q: Any Other SONY remote, such as SONY Bravia unified IR Configuration Remote, can config TK20?
A: Can't sure, with more and more setting function are added, some code not common on every remote are used. so we suggest to use same remote as we use.

 

Q: What's BEC

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

 

 Precaution

 Use dry battery or power supply as power source at testing to keep burn down anything if any error on modification. then use chargeable battery when every function working normally.

Read carefully and fully understand the instructions before commencing assembly.

Metal part on FET can not be touched with any metal when TK board is operating.
