Glad to see a US dealer for Taigen tanks. I have accumulated three now, it's nice to see someone with parts relatively nearby.

Gene, what's the procedure for binding a TX to different tanks?

Hi Phil, To bind a new Taigen 2.4ghZ radio to a new receiver. Do the following: There are 2 switches on top of the radio, Flick the right stick forward. Turn on power to radio. The red light on the radio will start to flash. When the red light stops flashing, flick the right switch back to the original position. binding process should be complete.

We will at some point be stocking Taigen 2.4GHz radioís and at that time will find out if these new radioís come with a receiver because all Taigen radios are pre-binded to the receiver at the factory.

We will also be stocking main boards in the very near future along with spare parts.

Hope the above answers your question Phil.

Gene

Just an update fellow tankers, Just received a new shipment of Taigen parts including the Tiger I metal lower chassis and 2.4GHz radio package.

In June, we will be receiving additional parts that will include the Panzer III metal lower chassis, tracks, suspension, sprocket and idler wheels and additional upgrade parts for the Panzer IV. The Panzer III IR tank should also be available in June.

Taigen IR Compatibility

Is the Taigen IR battle system compatible with the Heng Long IR battle system? Do both systems use the RX-18 board?

Sorry for the very late reply Mfpage, didnít know we had a question that needed to be answered. No, the Taigen IRís arenít compatible with the Heng Long IR battle units regardless of what board you have in your tank.

mfpage no the Taigen system is NOT compatible with HL or Tamiya or any other system. It has all the sounds and quirks of the RX18 though.
As for the board it is an RX18 with a fan and a built in 2.4ghz reciever, basicly same as the new mato system and I think the Leopard is coming out with it as well.

M1A2 you are wrong here bud. If I put a different board in a Taigen it can and generally does become compatible with a Heng Long or a Tamiya. Why folks would want Heng Long compatibility is beyond me but there are several products that can do this
Mako system and the Clark TK series do this well.
For Tamiya compatibility you have Mako, DBC, SLU, El Mod and Clark TK boards as well.

Hi FreakyDude, my answer to you was referring to any stock board that comes with your Taigen or Heng Long tank are not Tamiya compatible. But yes you can add an additional boards, like Mako2 to make it Tamiya compatible if you want but that costs extra money. I thought your question was talking about any new tank straight out of the box. Hope this clears up anything I said above.

Has anybody tested the new Mako2 boards in the Taigen tanks yet?? Thinking of ordering one for testing.
