Question
My Heng Long 1:30 Sherman receiver board is kaput

Apologies if my 'maiden post' is not quite where/what it ought to be.

I have a heng long 1:30 sherman that was donated to me as a 'project' but as far as I can tell, the receiver board in the tank is kaput.

My googling shows me that the rx-6b chip on the board is like hens teeth, which is a pity as the 7 functions (3 motors with two way control and 1 with on/off only) is pretty sweet on a £25 shop price tank.

Can anyone suggest an alternative tx/rx setup or shall I just continue my hacking project and turn it into an autonomous rover instead?

You could go with a hobby radio with enough channels to handle everything. If you do, go with a 2.4 radio with mixing functions.

Fair point. Although there're diminishing returns on repairs to a tank that cheap. It seems a shame that the tx/rx-6b chip has gone the way of the dodo though.

It's tempting to invest in a basic multi-channel 2.4 sender/receiver rig for a future project, maybe after the wallet spasms of X-mas are over
